I have crashed my computer. I am able to boot, but the system freezes after loading, and my program files are really in bad shape.
When my C: was working properly, I made a backup with the clone program XXClone.
I made a 100 % identical backup in all possible ways, and I of course made it bootable.
I cloned C: to the main partition of one of my external hard disks (let us call it X: for practical purposes).
In order to fix my current, corrupt C:, I would believe that I could do the following:
1. Start my original machine (I’m writing this from my secondary machine), and let it boot from X:
2. Since X: is a 100 % identical copy of the previously 100 % working C:, then this boot will work as if I booted my previous healthy C:, and I will be able to access all my programs, and they will work ok
3. Then I can start XXClone – which is installed as a functioning program on my X: (which the machine – for all practical purposes – now think is C
4. Then I can make an identical copy from X: to C:. I.e. I take the “healthy” C: copy (which is X
and clones it over the partly destroyed C:, and thereby I will be left with a “new” working C:
Will this not be logical?
