Here is the Long of my previous post "Clone Solid State Drive".
I purchased a computer for a client - a Lenovo - Desktop - Intel Core i5 - 8GB Memory - 128 SSD (operating system/programs) and 1TB Hard Drive for storage - "1TB hard drive and 128GB solid-state drive (SSD) for a blend of storage space and speed
The hard drive provides ample storage, while the SSD delivers faster start-up times and data access."
Monday it wouldn't start (newest Windows update failure is suspected)...all advanced repair options, short of a clean reinstall failed. I spoke to Lenovo and they informed me that the bios was set to not allow a Refresh of the OS but only a Reset that would reinstall the OS but remove all personal file, folders and installed apps. Not acceptable but I am not sure what recourse we have since she has owed the computer since 8/10/17. Since I am not able to access her computer she is taking it in to Best Buy where we bought it to see if there is a work around as it takes hours to personalize her computer.
I have always cloned another hard drive, for this kind of situation, so we could simply swipe out the hard drive, update her data and she would be good to go.
I was told by Acronis that they couldn't clone a dual HD system so I never made a clone. After this happened I started thinking "What if I simply clone the SSD which contains the OS and Programs then reinstall her data from her backup." Do you think that would work?
In my last post I was given the info to purchase the correct adapter to possibly do this. I also have a dual HD Lenovo computer so I was going to attempt on my computer.
Thoughts, suggestions appreciated!!
