i have tons of data on my laptop and don't really know how to back all of it up.
EaseUS Partion manager keeps giving me the same error when i try to convert back to basic. "Find some partition error, continue this operation might cause boot failure and data loss, are you sure to proceed?"
I don't know what to do, I have defragmented the disk and spent hours error-checking.
Please help me,
I can give you partial answers.
- because it is a laptop, it should not have made the disk dynamic anyway. How did you create the partition, how did you make dual boot? Dynamic disks are not supported on laptop, afak.
- you are referring Partition Manager, in this backup subforum? Why exactly?
- I suggest you do a file backup, at least you have then your data for safe, although not the system. File Backup should be independent of the disk format (basic, dynamic).
- I suggest you use the built-in Windows Backup and Restore (Control Panel) and Create a System Image (command is in the left pane) for backup of the "System". Do also a system restore CD (the other command in the left pane, I'm unsure about is english wording).
