I recently lost my full libary on my internal 2Tb SSD whilst syncing following adding some new tracks, this was about 18000 tunes all in appropriate crates and caused me 3 full days of formatting and basically starting again, which I have now done and it’s gave me a good chance to tidy up. I had another drive with a good back up from my old 6000Mk2 Serato days. What I want to do is duplicate an exact copy onto a spare drive that I could quickly install at a Gig if similar happened out and about, is there an easy way to duplicate a drive where all the track will appear in crates as in the Prime 4 without physically removing removing the internal drive to do so, sorry guys but it needs to be in basic terminology…thanks…
Mac user here. I recommend Carbon copy Cloner
Source drive - P4 internal SSD
Destination Drive - new external SSD
You can leave the settings as default but I tweaked mine a little so it’s the exact clone
Thanks, that I can possibly achieve, it’s a bit like a belt and braces for me…
if you just want to clone the whole partition or disk, you don’t even need any additional program. you can simply use disk utility.
Windows users can use robocopy. It’s a very powerful file copy utility. I use it to keep my back up usb drives in sync.
The basic syntax is:
Robocopy [source] [destination] /MIR
I can make a demo vid if there’s any interest.
Here’s some documentation on robocopy:
