    About "Copy Volume"

    Since data saved in dynamic volumes are not absolutely safe, for example it may get lost due to our mistaken deleting/formatting, virus attack, and hardware damage, it is very necessary to make a backup for important files. Nevertheless, copying files one by one will cost much time especially when there are so many files to backup. Fortunately, Copy Volume feature in MiniTool Partition Wizard clones the entire dynamic volume correctly, which saves a lot of time. And the copy can be used directly like the source.

    Note: MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition does not support dynamic volume. For this support, users need to purchase professional or more advanced edition.
