I have a PC with 3 HDDs. I decided to clone my Windows 7 Ultimate x86 from one HDD to another one, and maybe to use the in paralel, in fork mode.
Yesterday I used O&O DiskImage Professional Edition and I checked the option in menu Tools > Change Computer Properties > Generate new SID. After this I encountered some multiple major issues.
Beside these 2 OS I have 2 more Win OSs and I think DiskImage has generated new SIDs for them as well.
Seems that now the main OS and the clone are conflicting somehow between them.
With EasyBCD I added the new clone to Windows Boot Menu.
When trying to boot into the clone, strange things happens.
First of all - I receive a strange message some 5-6 times - "Recycle Bin corrupted..." for every single OS from my PC.
My Windows settings and preferences were reseted to defaults, or at least the Windows Notifications/Action Center was reseted and I began to receive notifications about Defender, Firewall, Windows Update Service - notifications which previously were disabled and should not appear. Ok, this is not really an issues.
All cookies and passwords in my main browser Opera are lost, gone, and I'am logged out everywhere I was logged in. Moreover, for some reason the Speed Dial of my Opera browser was damaged / deleted, and it dissappeared completely. Also all my Opera extensions for some reason were deleted by DiskImage. I succeded to restore them and Speed Dial from the cloned OS.
Why there is no info notice / disclaimer at "Generate new SID " that there can appear such issues?
Can I rollback that action (new SID generation) to restore my systems to previous state?
I was happy after the use of M.I.R. function of DiskImage, but after the incident caused by feature new SID generation, I am disappointed and angry... Only if I knew about such possible issues... Now I need to try to restore somehow my systems at previous state of things...
And again about main OS and clone. Main OS is on partition C: on disk 1 while clone is on partition I: on disk 2. When booting into the clone, it somehow fakes the boot or mixes it, and the OS anyway works on C:. Seems that the clone remained linked/connected to the main OS, and I must probably broke any link or connection between them.
Professional / Workstation / Server Edition
