"simple and effective"
Did exacty what it was supposed to do.
Not really a con, but low on features. Hey, it's free and it works.
I'm surprised others complained about speed. I found the copying to be lightning fast, very close to the maximum possible bus speed. Be aware, it copies the entire disk, including the empty space, byte by byte. That can take a long time, but that's exactly what this program is supposed to do.
I used it to make an exact copy of a failing Tivo hard drive. It didn't seem to recognize the Tivo disk's partitions, but since I did an exact copy of the entire drive, that didn't matter. the results were completely successful. It even handled many bad sectors on the source drive without a hiccup, reporting the errors along the way. You can set it to stop at each error, or simply report when done.
For faster copying of PATA drives, put each drive on its own cable.
