Pixel Types

Dear all,

there is a raster layer I would like to convert to polygons witrh the tool "Raster To Polygon". But that doesn't work. If I got it right the pixel type must be "integer", but in fact it is "floating point".

With the tool "Copy Raster" I wanted to change the pixel type. There are a lot of pixel types available, but several tests resulted in raster images different from the original.

How do I know which pixel type to choose and what do I have to observe to get a raster image identical to the original?

Thanks in advance and kind regards,
