I have already cloned a disk of one of my computers.  Using Macrium on another I got the warning that it would erase all data on that external enclosure.

 

Is it a fact that one cannot add extra cloning on a single medium?

 

Please advise - thanks.

Hi

A Clone is an exact replica of the source drive. Thus If You clone to a drive another clone to that drive will in fact replace everything.

 

What You might look into doing is making images. A External drive can hold multiple images. Macrium Reflect Free can in fact do clones or images according to their website.

 

Good Luck

Roger
