Ok, this may sound scarier than it actually is; but literally one week after I went on Twitter and told Greg Schulz that I haven’t cloned a disk in over six years; I went yesterday and cloned a disk.
BUT, that’s not the unthinkable part. What I did was kinda funny. So, here’s the situation; I have access to an SSD drive. And I want to use it!
So, I used a disk clone tool to copy my entire notebook drive to an external USB drive. OK, fine enough, as my installation of Windows is fine; and I like the environment – no need to change. So, I started the clone process, and it took forever it felt (around 150 GB of data). So, then I did the unthinkable. I undocked my laptop from my docking station while the clone tool was running and put it in the trunk of my car. Drove to dinner. And then went home, all while continuing the same clone job. Oddly enough, it completed fine!
The job is restoring now. We’ll see how it goes..
Not as tragic as it may read, but it felt wrong just doing that to a computer.
