[ Functionality ]
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.
[ HDClone on Windows XP/Vista/7/8 and Server 2003/2008/2012 ]
• create copies and images - even of the system volume - while Windows is running
• access to special media & controllers (SCSI, SAS, RAID, Dynamic Volumes ...)
• use of familiar Windows drive letters
Each HDClone software package now contains a Windows program (HDClone/W) in addition to the self-booting program (HDClone/S). With identical interfaces on both programs there is complete ease in switching between HDClone/S and HDClone/W.
[ NEW: Advanced Format support ]
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.
[ PartitionSelect ]
Allows you to select one or more partitions of a disk to be transferred without having to copy all the partitions. This saves space on the target drive, making it possible to use a smaller target or using the additional space for the remaining partitions. The special thing about PartitionSelect is that it transfers the required data in one single step, no matter what size the partitions have or how they are arranged. Copying the partitions, plus other adjustments will be performed with almost no extra time required and HDClone will still work at its maximum speed.
[ File images - NEW: dynamic VMDK/VHD images ]
Instead of a direct copy from medium to medium, you can also store an exact image of the medium in a file image. Optionally, the image may be created compressed or encrypted. With QuickCompress, this requires almost no extra time for compressing. 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. HDClone can also create dynamic VMDK and VHD images. Such an image can be mounted directly in VMware and VirtualPC virtual machines.
[ Miray Virtual Disk (MVD) - NEW: dynamic VMDK & VHD images ]
From the Basic Edition on, HDClone includes the software "Miray Virtual Disk" (» version overview). You can use this software to mount file images that have been created with HDClone (including VMDK and VHD) 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. Images can be accessed read-only or writable.
[ Defragmentation 'on the fly' for NTFS & FAT ]
HDClone can perform a perfect defragmentation on NTFS and FAT volumes during copying or restoring from a file image. This defragmentation only needs a fraction of the time usually required, therefore it consumes almost no additional time in relation to the copying process.
[ HotCopy & LiveImage ]
HDClone can now create copies and file images of drives and partitions during Windows operation - even for the system volume.
[ Faster with SmartCopy mode ]
HDClone creates logical sector copies (SmartCopy) of FAT, NTFS and ext2/ext3/ext4 file systems in only a fraction of the time usually needed - yielding an equivalent result. SmartCopy can clone an entire Windows XP base installation in less than 20 seconds for example.
[ AutoExpand - upsizing 'on the fly' ]
HDClone can increase your FAT, NTFS, and ext2/ext3/ext4 partition size automatically on the fly during copying.
[ AutoReduce - decreasing partition size 'on the fly' for NTFS & FAT ]
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.
[ Command Line Interface (CLI) - NEW: Selection by port and media ID ]
Starting from the Professional Edition, HDClone can be launched in the command line of Windows. This enables cloning tasks to be executed time-triggered and/or scripted. Drives can be selected by Windows ID (dynamic), port number (fixed, IDE/SATA/SCSI only), or media ID (fixed, drive name/serial).
