How to duplicate a #partition in Windows using Disk Managment

If you want to duplicate a partition, to create an exact copy of it, then there are probably plenty of tools to do this. However, you can also do it with Disk Management – Which is available under the Computer Management tool in Windows.

First thing, is to click on the partition you want to copy, and select “Add mirror”, then select the empty partition you want to copy the data on to.

This process will take several hours, and will only show progress after 30 minutes or so – Depending on the speed of your system.

Once complete, right click on the partition, and select “Break Mirrored Volume”, you will now have two identical drives.
