I am unable to clone a 2TB Seagate drive (with only 63GB allocated) to a 250GB VelociRaptor which I want to use for a system drive.
Acronis reboots to do the clone, I see it load and put up logos, there is just a flash of what I think is the Acronis progress screen. then the system reboots again into Windows.
The Acronis log does not have any error messages, the last entry just says it is starting to do the clone.
What is happening? I am asking it to do a proportional image. The source drive has two partitions (350 MB and 1862.67GB primary), the destination drive has had a “clean” done on it by “diskpart”.
I used the Windows disk manager to check the drive, it says I can shrink the volume to 63GB so there are no unmoveable files at locations greater than the size of the VelociRaptor.
Perhaps it is because I have Windows 8? The Acronis software seemed to install and run correctly, and it is running standalone when it fails. The VelociRaptor still has no partitions on it after the failure, so it seems likely the issue is with the contents of the source drive.
