    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.

    How to Copy Volume

    Firstly, launch MiniTool Partition Wizard to get its main interface below:

    copy volume

    Then, select the volume which needs copying and choose “Copy Volume” from the left pane or choose “Copy” from the toolbar.

    copy volume 1

    Next, select a dynamic volume as the target volume to save the copy of the source volume and click “Next>”. After this operation, users will receive the following message:

    copy volume 2

    All data on the target volume will be erased, so users need to backup needed data in advance. After confirming operation, please click “Yes” to get the following interface:

    copy volume 3

    In the interface above users can resize volume by changing the length of volume handle and move volume location by changing the position of the entire handle. Then, click “Finish” to go back to the main interface:

    copy volume 4

    Now we can see the source volume has been cloned to the target volume, so please click “Apply” button to apply all changes.
