Disk Clone

In addition to erasing hard drives KillDisk also allows you to write an image or copy a Master Disk to newly erased hard drives with its cloning feature.

To clone a disk (or image to a disk) navigate to the Disk Clone tab when you edit existing Erase Batch or create a new Erase Batch and check the Use Disk Clone box, as shown below.

Important:

Make sure the Use Disk Examine option is selected on Disk Examine page (as shown below). Otherwise Disk Clone option is avoided in this Wizard as well as in Batch Editing.

An existing disk image or physical hard drive can be used as the Master Copy to be cloned to the newly erased drive. For additional preferences and configuration see Clone Sources.

To configure a source image/disk for Disk Clone operation in Erase Batch:

  1. Navigate to the Disk Clone tab in the Erase Batch settings and check the Use Disk Clone checkbox
  2. Select the disk image source from either image file or physical disk
  3. Specify which sector to start the copy from. If unsure leave as '0'
  4. Optional: if you need to print a label, choose a proper Disk Label Preset

Disk Clone is now configured. When an erase operation is completed the source image/disk will be cloned to the newly erased drive.
