Hi Shashank,

Since Stellar Drive Clone creates a replica of the hard drive, the file format of Macintosh HD will be same as of the source Macintosh HD. In the above article, the Macintosh HD was HFS formatted hence the clone Macintosh HD is HFS formatted too.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Thanks.

Dear Sir/Madam

We bought your software to do a clone from OSX with Bootcamp. When cloning starts it creates partitions on secondary drive and it says completed, but there is no data on partitions.
The software is useless for use. I tried now with different software like CarbonCopyCloner and it has completed partition cloning sucesfully.

Is that possible to clone disk with NTFS bootcamp, and retain NTFS on new drive ? Because Windows 7 64 only work in NTFS.

I have a Windows 10 64-bit Bootcamp partition running on a MAC OS Mojave. Is it possible to clone both disks, and have the original NTFS file-format of Windows 10?

What are the cons if the Windows 10 OS run on a EXFAT format?

Good morning,

I am experiencing a similar issue to one posted above. I need to clone a MacOS drive inclusive of the Bootcamp partition. When following the instructions to clone the drive, the process completes very quickly and says the clone is complete.

The partitions are present on the target disk, but there is no data. I then tried restoring data from both partitions, and now the Mac is booting MacOS, but it unable to boot Windows in Bootcamp.

Are you able to assist with this?

Thank you.

Dear Kim,

As mentioned in our article, Boot Camp partition will be cloned to EXFAT partition.

Software will clone the complete data of Boot Camp partition however Windows will not remain bootable.
