Creating identical 1:1 copies of hard disks and other media. For data rescue, backup, system restoration, mass installations and many more...
HDClone copies the entire contents of hard disks and other IDE/ATA, SATA/eSATA, SCSI, USB, and Firewire media on a physical level. This even allows for the smooth creation of backups or copies of complete operating system installations. In combination with the special 'SafeRescue' mode of HDClone, this technique is also perfect for rescuing data in case of defective hard disks. Furthermore, HDClone works independent of a partition layout, file system and operating system (i.e. it works with FAT, FAT32, NTFS, etc.). Thus, it also works with proprietary data formats which could not be accessed otherwise. Besides copying complete drives, it is also possible to apply it to certain partitions only.

The Professional Edition of HDClone is conceived for daily use. For this purpose, it offers technicians, professional and private users the highest possible speed and flexibility through its 'FastCopy' mode and the 'Sector area' option which allows you to define an arbitrary copying area on the medium.
Besides IDE/ATA and SATA/eSATA hard disks and USB Mass Storage devices (hard disk, stick, card reader) via USB 1.1 and 2.0., HDClone Professional Edition also supports SCSI hard disks* and Firewire (IEEE1394) mass storage (SBP2) devices, e.g. an external hard disk or a card reader. The Professional Edition copies up to 5,4 GB/min and more.
