About Copy Volume

Data saved in dynamic volumes are not absolutely safe. For example, it may get lost due to mistaken deletion/formatting, virus attack, and hardware damage. Thus, 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 can clone the entire dynamic volume effectively, saving a lot of time. And the copy can be used directly as the source.

Note: MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition does not support this function. To use this function, users need to buy a professional edition or more advanced edition. View Edition Comparison to know more.
