HDClone is a straightforward tool that makes it easy to create a copy of any internal or external (USB) drive.

It's an ideal choice for migrating your current Windows installation to a faster, larger hard drive. HDClone will automatically expand your partitions to take advantage of any extra capacity.

The program could also be used as a simple backup tool. Rather than save just a few selected files and folders, buy a spare hard drive (even terabyte models are cheap these days) and you'll be able to back up everything.

And the HDClone download also includes an ISO file with a stand-alone version of the program. If your PC won't start, then you can use the bootable version either to restore a backup, or try to salvage at least some data from a damaged hard drive.

While HDClone Free Edition works just fine for simple backups, it does have several restrictions over the commercial versions. There's no support for copying SCSI, Firewire or dynamic drives, for instance. Copying speeds are capped to a maximum of 1.0GB per minute, and it's missing a number of other performance and image-related features. Check the HDClone website for more information.

What's new in v9.1.11 (see changelog for more)?

- Multi-M2 Support with Intel-RSTWhen using more than one M.2 disk in a system with "NVMe Remapping" or "Intel Rapid Storage Technology" (Intel-RST) enabled, now all of the M.2 disks can be detected, not only one as before.

Verdict:

A simple but effective hard drive copy tool. Watch out for those Free Edition restrictions, though

Have used once to clone my linux drive and was successful. This is fairly easy to use and quite effective. Great piece of freeware! Thanks to the author.
