HDClone is the ideal instrument for moving or cloning contents of entire hard disks on larger ones. Since it works on a physical level it can be used with any operating system and any filesystem. HDClone copies the data for you. This permit you to transfer entire system installations to a newer hard disk rapidly and simply (hard disk migration).
You only have to add the additional space on the disk via a partitioning tool. Since HDClone has its own operating system and is self-booting, it can be used even if the installed operating system is damaged. Therefore HDClone is also a great solution for data rescue on corrupted hard disks or system installations.
The commercial versions HDClone Basic Edition, HDClone Standard Edition, HDClone Professional Edition, and HDClone Enterprise Edition offer extended features. The Professional Edition of HDClone is conceived for daily use. For this purpose, it offers technicians, professional and private users the highest possible velocity and flexibility through its FastCopy mode and the Sector area option which permit 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.
