Cloning LTS NVR HDD Keeps Failing - Is It Possible To Clone Them?

Good Morning All,

We have a client that wants to backup 16TB of storage as they are upgrading to a larger channel NVR. Now we have tried to do backups in hours, days, weeks via the VMS and also direct from the NVR to an external HDD however it keeps failing or just stopping. No idea why.

Is it possible to clone the drives and hope they can be used to review footage ? Anyone did such a large backup ?

fyi it’s an LTS NVR. Spoke to their tech who indicated they never backed up that much before.

Thanks
