HD Backup - only the Volume folder?

Unread post by PaulMueck » Thu May 16, 2019 10:54 am

Hello,
I did a backup of my HD because I will replace it with a SSD.
Is it only the Volume folder that I have to copy to the SSD?
The backup shows some more folders ...

Yes Paul,

Just connect the Fusion via USB to your Computer (I assume PC).

It will appear in <My Computer> as Fusion_HD.

Open Fusion_HD and copy the <Volume> folder to your Desktop - or wherever . . .

When you have installed the SSD, Format it IN THE FUSION (NOT in Windows)

The reason for this is that the Fusion ALSO writes various Folders to the Root AS WELL as simply formatting!

Reconnect to usb and copy the <Volume> folder (on your desktop) to the Root of the (new) Fusion_HD.

You will see "Files already exist - overwrite?" - or something similar

Say YES to all, and wait for the copying to complete . . .

Dismount the Fusion_HD from the Computer (The Fusion will re-boot)

And that should be it . . . . 8-)

Thank you, Chris.
I already made the copy to the PC and I thought what you have written.
But I wasn't sure.

Have a nice day!
