    Cloning the SSD on BP's

    We've been cloning the HDD's from the MX 3050 & 3051 Series for awhile now. But we can't find a device to clone the SSD's.
    Anyone Cloned the SSD from the BP series? If so what do you use as a cloner?

    Considering that an SSD is basically huge SD Card or USB thumb drive, I would say whatever would work with one of them. You might want to look into MiniTool Partition Wizard.

    Do you mean the device to plug it in to? If so, you'd need an M.2 drive cloning device. As far as software, we use HDDRawCopy, which works well. Haven't done the BP SSD's though yet. We need to get a device to clone em. The tricky part is those machines already have issues being cloned with settings, so firmware will be the FIRST thing you must do when you put it in.

    Are you trying to clone a BP series machine? I have cloned BP series machine using a usb stick and under settings, copy storage backup and device cloning information.
    is this what you are trying to do.

    Right idea, but they mean being able to fully clone the SSD, so if it fails, they can just throw the clone on to a regular SSD of the same or greater speed and capacity, and save a ton of money by not buying Sharp's overpriced part. Same goes with HDDs on old machine.

    Re: Cloning the SSD on BP's

    Steve our rep advised us to NOT clone machines any longer. They are seeing a lot of problems with lock up, slow networking etc... if you saw the webinar last week he took a lot of time on this bullet point. Japan has said it's the cloning that is causing all the strange issues with SSD, HDD and eeproms. The only time it can be done is with the EXACT same model machine with the same firmware. Check with your rep on this issue.
    Sim 56-9 will get your address book from other models
    OBTW, Sharp does have an address book tool in the software section of Sharp-INDC

    Re: Cloning the SSD on BP's

    Why would you need to clone the HDD or SSD ?

    I had to replace a lot of HDD on the CR4.5 serie (E7-93 error) and you just need to replace the HDD, the boot will be longer (3 minutes) but everything is back (except the home background).

    From the service manual :
    HDD/SSD
    Stores the filing data, the log data and authentication data also used as a work memory

    eMMC PWB
    Stores the SOC program data, snapshot, the e-manual data, the watermark data, the log data

    It was different on the previous generation 2640N with the SD card failing.

    Because you pay 5x the cost when purchasing the drive through the manufacturer.

    The HDD is empty, the copier will format it.
    You can put any HDD from the market (a WD Blue for example last month) and it will work.
