Description from the Publisher

The universal cloning tool

HDClone creates physical or logical copies (clones) and file images of hard disks and other mass storage media. HDClone is a perfect tool for backups and creating copies of entire software or operating system installations. A special SafeRescue mode makes HDClone an invaluable tool for rescuing defective hard disks and other media. HDClone works independent of partitioning scheme, file system, and operating system. It also works with proprietary formats which would otherwise be inaccessible.

Features

Advanced Format

Support for modern sector sizes

For over 30 years, 512 Bytes have been the one-and-only standard sector size for any PC mass storage media. Now modern drives in “Advanced Format” can have different sector sizes (512, 512e, 1Kn, and 4Kn). HDClone allows you to create clones and file images between disks with different sector formats and converts NTFS and FAT file systems automatically.

Self-booting and under Windows

HDClone works without an operating system

HDClone can be booted from CD/DVD, floppy and USB stick, so you even can recover an image without a working operating system. With identical interfaces on both programs there is complete ease in switching between the self-booting version and the Windows program.

File images

Perfect for back-ups

Instead of a direct copy from medium to medium, you can also store an exact image of the medium in a file image. These file images can be stored, archived, or transmitted via network and the Internet. They can be restored 1:1 to a medium which then behaves just like a direct copy had been made.

Miray Virtual Disk

Direct access to file images

From the Basic Edition on, HDClone includes the software Miray Virtual Disk. You can use this software to mount file images that have been created with HDClone as virtual Windows drives. This allows you to access files and folders in an image directly without having to restore the image to a physical disk before.

UEFI and GPT support

Supports UEFI BIOS and GUID partition tables

This feature allows HDClone to run on computers with new UEFI BIOS. GPT partitions used for large (> 2 TB) hard disks are recognized automatically and copied correctly.

Upsizing with AutoExpand

Upsizing on the fly

HDClone can increase your FAT, NTFS and ext2/ext3/ext4 partition size automatically on the fly during copying.

Reducing with AutoReduce

Reducing on the fly for FAT and NTFS

HDClone can decrease your NTFS and FAT partition size automatically on the fly during copying. This allows you to adjust partition sizes during cloning or to migrate to smaller media. Perfect for migrating to (usually smaller) SSD drives.

HotCopy & LiveImage

Copies and backup during operation

HDClone now can create copies and file images of drives and partitions during Windows operation - even for the system volume.

Safe data recovery

Read defective media in SafeRescue mode

When copying from media with defective areas these areas will be skipped in the first run. The rescue operation will be performed at the end of the process to prevent further disk damage.
