a. Unable to start cloning: Please check whether the actual capacity of B disk is higher than
A disk (BA), otherwise it wont work when A disks actual capacity is higher than B
disks. (B<A )
b. Indicator light stops flashing up during offline duplicating: it might because of disk bad
sectors so that data couldnt be cloned as usual. Its better to change a good disk.
c. After cloning, the rest capacity of B disk is showed and operated via Computer
management - Storage - Disk management.
d. Why over 2TB hard disk couldnt be identified by USB? Because the maximum capacity
of hard disk which Windows XP can supports is 2TB and couldnt be identified by
system if over 2TB. It only supports after upgrading the operating system above Vista
(64 bit) version and we suggest changing hard disk into a GPT disk partition, or the
operating system will not support over 2 TB disk partitions.
e. Please make sure that B hard disk data can be covered before cloning data. Because
once you start cloning, B hard disk partition methods and data are completely cloned as
A hard disk. Our company does NOT undertake any responsibility for data or economy
loss which could bring by damaged data.
f. Please do not remove your hard drive or insert a new one while the other hard drive is
being accessed, as doing so the other drive temporarily disconnects and this could
damage your hard drive and result in data loss.
