How does EZ Gig clone if the Source and Destination drives are of EQUAL size?
If source and target are of the same size, EZ Gig creates an absolutely identical copy(clone). On this clone, all sectors on source and target, from the first to the last sector, are 100% identical, provided that the process was error-free.
How does EZ Gig clone if the Source drive is SMALLER than the Destination drive?
If the source is smaller than the target, EZ Gig copies only the data that is available on the source. This data is copied from the beginning of the source onto the beginning of the target medium. The area at the end of the target medium, which is larger than the source, remains unaffected. Apart from that the unaffected area remains possibly unused during a later usage, such a copy is usually comparable to a real clone as far as the capacity of use is concerned because the target contains entirely all data of the source.
How does EZ Gig clone if the Source drive is LARGER than the Destination drive?
If the source is bigger than the target, EZ Gig will direct you to the Data Select feature. EZ Gig’s Data Select provides a simple method to deselect data folders from the cloning process. EZ Gig will only allow to proceed with the clone, once the available capacity on the target drive is a positive value.
What is the buffer size for?
A buffer of 10% of total partition size(s) is needed to track changes to the file table and registry on the new drive. Without this buffer the cloning process cannot continue.
