Partition copy is to copy one partition to another partition. It’s necessary for computer users who think highly of some files in a particular partition. However, the Microsoft operating system fails to provide users with a reliable and efficient way to copy the entire partition to another location, unless users use the traditional Copy-Paste method. This file-to-file copy can work well as long as there is no problem with the file system on the original partition. Otherwise, the copy process will stop. So, there arises a question: what is the best method which enables users to copy partition safely and easily?
