DriveClone 3 Pro creates a complete disk image of a hard drive. This backup disk image can be used to recover lost data on a hard drive: all e-mail and personal files, all installed applications, and all system files and configurations. The disk image can also be used to quickly transfer all information on a hard drive onto a new hard drive, or to copy a single system configuration across multiple hard drives or partitions.
DriveClone Pro adds automatic, ongoing file version backup and system snapshots not available in the personal edition of DriveClone, enabling fast recovery from software-related data disasters.
Vista Support: DriveClone Pro works on 64 or 32-bit Windows Vista, XP, and 2000 Professional
Disk Imaging within Windows: Create a complete hard drive image without leaving your familiar Windows environment
Ongoing Snapshots: Preview and select an automatically created backup point to restore an entire system
FireWire Support: Store your disk image on a FireWire device
File Level Backup: Retrieve a lost file from a record of saved versions
Incremental Backup: Quickly update a saved hard disk image to keep data current
DriveClone Pro’s hard drive imaging and cloning features let you quickly recover, replace, or upgrade your hard drive in case of any data disaster. Your operating system, files and settings will appear exactly as they were when you cloned or imaged your hard drive.
Simple enough for a home user, DriveClone Pro still has plenty of features for the system administrator, who can copy a single disk image onto multiple computer systems, dramatically reducing the time needed to install new software, configure settings, and load data.
DriveClone Pro offers incremental backup — saved disk images can be automatically updated to keep data current — and allows you to perform most imaging and recovery tasks without ever leaving the Windows environment.

How DriveClone Pro Works
DriveClone Pro clones an entire hard drive or a single partition by copying used data sectors from a source hard drive to a destination hard drive. If you need to clone to a larger hard drive, DriveClone Pro lets you resize the partition(s) on the destination hard drive.
Cloning and imaging are done within Windows and do not require a system restart. All personal data, installed applications, operating system files, settings, and configurations will be replicated on the destination hard drive.
When DriveClone Pro creates a complete backup image, it copies only used data sectors on a hard drive or selected partition and saves the data as a compressed image file. The image file can be stored on CD-DVD, on a network share, to external USB or FireWire hard drive, or to another hard drive within your computer.
When DriveClone Pro incrementally updates a saved image, only changed data sectors are backed up. This reduces the file size of the backup image and and the time it takes to complete the incremental update.
DriveClone Pro’s System Snapshot is a separate component that automatically creates system backups at scheduled intervals and saves the backup points to a protected partition of the hard drive. System Snapshot enables fast recovery from software related data disasters such as a bad application installation.
The file backup feature keeps automatically generated copies of each saved version of personal files. File backup can be configured to include or exclude certain file types, folders, etc.
