Clone a Mac disk
Posted on 2012-09-12
A Client is having problems with their MacBook pro, it wont boot and is displaying error disk0s2: I/0 error.
They have taken it to a apple store and because it still under warranty however they have said that they will not do any data recovery and they cannot have the old disk back.
The client requires some of the data on the disk so we will look the recover the data before it goes to apple.
Before we do any work on the disk I would like to clone it then try to recover the data from the cloned drive. As it is a MAC do you need to use any special software for cloneing the disk. For a PC drive I use DriveImage XML.
Also will it be okay to run the clone on a PC or would it be better to run a clone on a Mac.
