Messing up a drive back up

  bumpkin 22:43 10 Aug 2018

I was using Minitool "Copy Disc". I formatted the destination drive G then copied C to it. Now neither of them will boot and no I did not do it the wrong way round. I am now using my external back up drive but am reluctant to try to copy that as it is the last chance saloon.

boot from c and try a startup repair by powering off after 5 secs do three times to get to the repair menu.

if that doesn't work boot from windows 10 boot media (USb or DVD) and try the same thing.

FB, thanks but it did not work.

rdave,It said copy disk in minitool which I tried to do. It then said something about the destination disk making the system unbootable which is why I formatted it first. It then appeared to do the copy but at the end neither disk would work. I have now resolved this by doing a clone using Macrium to both disks. Glad I keep an external back up disk.
