How to clone the recovery partition?

 I everybody,

I have a DELL laptop with a HDD WD Black. The HDD has broken down still under warranty and will go to RMA. My problem is that I need to make a copy of the Recovery partition and then install the new HDD that comes. Someone can help me solve the simplest way this problem is that I have no free HDD and I only have the OS recovery copies.

Thanks in advanced,



One thing that you can try is to get an external enclosure and set a advance RMA so you can have a few days with both drives to transfer the file that you can to the replacement drive.

I’ve got the “NEW” RMA disk. Service was fast but the FedEx carrier is horrible. Inside the box came an equal HDD that says "RECETIFIED HARD DRIVE, this to me is a record that had problems, my doubt is: to what extent has a WD Black quality so I can sell.

Can me clarify this please

Thank you.
