CLONE THE HDD TO AVOID REPLOTING
Trimac last edited by
Greetings my burst teachers. i came up with the idea of cloning my hdd the one i stored with plots. so in order to avoid re plotting. is it ok to clone my plots using cloning software and then mind afterwards. because when i plot it takes only 1-2hrs of my 600GB to process cloning. so what do u think? is this ok ?

@Trimac if you clone one HDD to another and then mine both, you are wasting space because it is the same files

I'll tell you that yes, you can clone fresh un-mined plots from hard drive to hard drive. You can rename the starting numbers so they don't overlap.
After mining for awhile or even a day the plot will and YES they will go bad. I have finally realized that I ignored everyone else's warning from a year ago because I thought it worked and saved me plotting time. I only have a dual core so plotting takes awhile. That is why I came up with the two plot sizes I will use from now one to fill drives. 440gb and 880gb.
I just received another 8tb drive replacement from seagate and plan to plot each file out over the next month. I don't care how long it takes because the system I started 2 weeks ago has yielded some steady mining without the headaches of corrupted plots.
I forgot to mention the only plots left are the originals from my 1st 8tb drive. Those will be replaced eventually with my new plot size system.

Don't mine with the same files. That's the same as overlapping and is just a waste of space. You need to have original plots for every plot, no 2 of the same!
