  Strawballs 21:20 15 May 2020

Hi it's been a while. My daughter has a windows 10 hp laptop with a small HDD,I have a spare 500gig drive but he drive hasn't got enough space to install acronis on it. Is there anyway I can make an I.age of her drive without installing the software on the small drive in the laptop?

Do you have to install this on the drive being cloned? If so that's where the problem is there's very little room on it?

Can you remove the latop drive and connect to your own machine?

make an image of the drive - connect the new drive and restore the image to the new drive put new drive in laptop and see if it will boot.

I'm unfamiliar with Acronis but I'm sure it will be similar as with Macrium. If you connect the destination drive via USB and connect the rescue media (I'm using a USB flash drive) then boot up to the rescue media you should be able to clone outside of Windows. Example of Macrium set-up below.
