  • Clone an SSD Drive.

    Hello,
    I want to clone the SSD Drive of a MITEL 3300 device => https://americantelebrokers.com/pub/....2014.402x.jpg
    I used OSForensics to clone this SSD Drive and checked it too:

    Click image for larger version  Name:	Capture-2.PNG Views:	0 Size:	16.7 KB ID:	49296

    And restored this image on a new SSD Drive with the same capacity:

    But seems not working!!!
    What is wrong?

    Thank you.

    ....not working
    Can you provide more details.
    Was there an error message?

    Can you check the exact size of both SSDs in bytes. Sometimes two 120GB drives aren't exactly the same size.

    It looks from the screen shot that both the source and ultimate destination are the same. You copied PhysicalDrive1 to PhysicalDrive1? Maybe you picked the wrong destination drive, and it should have been PhysicalDrive2 ?

      Thank you.
      How can I calculate the size in in bytes?
      No, PhysicalDrive2 is my internal HDD.
      I don't know ask this question is OK or not, but is OSForensics more powerful than "DD" in Linux?
      In Linux, the disk structure is:
      Code:
      $ lsblk -f

      I guess, the device is running kind of Linux or QNX OS!!!

        When I plugged the cloned SSD Drive to the device then it just rebooted.
        Any idea?

          If you are in Windows (and OSF only runs in Window) then you can check size of a physical drive from the Windows's "Disk management" app. Right click on the drive and select Properties. The screen shots from QNX only seem to show 1 physical hard drive. And I would have expected two is you are cloning a drive?

          is OSForensics more powerful than "DD" in Linux?
          Yes.
          But if your only job is cloning a drive and you don't care about checksums / verification, then DD can work.

          Again it would help if you could elaborate on what "not working" means.

          Not sure what machine you are using for this, if you are doing the cloning directly on the MITEL 3300, or not.
          But it might make sense to pull the old drive and put both the old a new drive into a more standard Windows desktop machine to clone them.

            Thank you.
            In the image number 1, "\\.\PhysicalDrive1" is the MITEL 3300 SSD Drive that I cloned it into my internal HDD (Drive D) Drive. In the image number 3, "\\.\PhysicalDrive1" is the new SSD Drive that I used for cloning.
            When I plugged the cloned SSD Drive into MITEL 3300 device and turn it on, then device can't boot and just rebooted.
            Both SSD Drives (Original and Cloned) are 120 GB.
            The interesting thing is that the "Cloning" button on HDD Docking device can clone that drive and it worked!
            Why HDD Docking can do it but OSForensics can't?

              Don't know why it didn't work. Would need more investigation and a bit of experimentation. e.g.
              - Was it a hardware issue. e.g. Cabling or sector failure on the drive.
              - Was it a one off issue or reproducible
              - Was the correct boot drive selected on the MITEL device
              - Was the source drive a standard drive (there can't sometimes be tricky hidden areas on drives with DCO and HPA). OSF can help checking this.
              - If you look a the boot sector of both the source and destination drive in a hex editor do they appear the same. OSF can help with this as well.
              - If you look at the partitioning of the two drives are they the same. OSF can help with this. But you can check in Windows Disk management.
              - Are the drives exactly the same size to the byte.

                I uploaded some images about the information that you wanted.

                  Nothing obvious in those screen shots. It looks like the clone is identical (size, partitioning and bytes in 1st sector).

                  You could try hashing the partitions and see if the hashes match. Maybe one partition had a sector fail.

                    Thank you.
                    How about "HPA" and "DCO" ?
                    How can I hashing the partitions?

                      You can check the hashing with the Verify / Create hash function in OSF. Pick you hash function, then Calculate.

                          I compared two partitions (Original and cloned) with WinHex and it found "44,365" differences:
                          Code:
                          Offsets: hexadec.
                          
                          25:    00 01
                          23A72: 82 8F
                          23A92: 82 8F
                          23BB2: 82 8F
                          23F72: 82 8F
                          23FB2: 82 8F
                          24012: 82 8F
                          24072: 82 8F
                          240D2: 82 8F
                          24112: 82 8F
                          241F2: 82 8F
                          24232: 82 8F
                          ...
                          Why? Any idea to replace these offsets?

                            Any idea to solve it?
                            How can I find "0x6857c8" ?

                              I think you made a similar post in another forensics forum, also stating that "dd" failed.
                              https://www.forensicfocus.com/forums...-an-ssd-drive/

                              You also made the comment that "others" had used a HDD cloning station and it worked. Which is different from the comment you made here, where you implied you used a HDD cloning station and it works (and thus the problem was solved).

                              So I think you need to consider the possibility that it might be hardware failure. Then work through the options to narrow down what the cause is.
                              1) Try 'dd' and / or OSF on a different computer (with different SATA cabling).
                              2) Try a different destination drive.
                              3) Check the SMART data on the source drive for failure indicators.
