    "Great product; Best support I've ever seen"

    May 3, 2007  |   By jrubel

    Version: Casper XP 3.0.1106

    Pros

    Product itself is simple, fast, and very effective.

    More importantly, the (free) support was simply the best I've ever seen for any software I've purchased. I had a number of problems cloning a hard drive, requiring several emails back and forth. Their staff replied to each email in 15 minutes or less, with detailed instructions, leading to resolution of the problem within a couple hours. Try that with companies like Symantec or Microsoft...!

    Cons

    Absolutely none!

    "Not ready for use"

    March 31, 2007  |   By kirsti77

    Version: Casper XP 3.0.1106

    Pros

    Casper Explorer in full registered version 4.0 allows to configure Casper specifying which files can be excluded when copying.

    Cons

    There are 2 modes for backup in Casper - Standard and SmartClone. In standard mode entire disk is copied what takes a lot of time so it can be easily replaced by other imaging software like Ghost, Drive Image or True Image which are quite reliable, not so pricey and even faster. SmartClone is supposed to provide update function for backups which is really fast. So idea is quite good but implementation is not reliable. Basically the problem with SmartClone is that it updates by copying, not mirroring - what means that old junk files will be accumulated on backup drive as they are not removed during consecutive updates. That can include eg. garbage files, uninstalled applications or virus infections, so SmartClone is not so smart after all, even causing serious problems. Until this problem is fixed I would recommend using Beyond Compare 2 for half a price of Casper as it allows fast mirror drive update and also comparison of folders with mirror updates. This way several backups can be maintained quite easily.

    "It Works!!!"

    February 20, 2007  |   By ThaDiskoKid

    Version: Casper XP 3.0.1106

    Pros

    Nice straight forward interface. Succeeded in doing whole disk copies of XP installs where Partition Magic 9.0 failed due to Error 1651 and other errors. Fast too. Spot on and hassle free so far. Just the ticket!

    Cons

    Would have been nice to have a boot disk version included e.g. like Partition Magics Rescue floppies. A bootable CD-ROM version is available but extra cash according to website.

    "Easy to install and use"

    February 18, 2007  |   By gussuk

    Version: Casper XP 3.0.1106

    Pros

    It worked as claimed. That was the most important part!

    Cons

    A bit pricy and intended for use on only one computer. It should be for one household or user!

    "Best Cloning software ive used"

    January 5, 2007  |   By speagle1uk

    Version: Casper XP 3.0.1106

    Pros

    Absolutely easy to use, as long as you have your spare hard drive partitioned, formatted and set as active, booting from it isnt a problem at all. Its well written and well laid out, nothing worse then loads of instructions that absolutely dont make sense.Ahem not mentioning that 'other' most popular bit of software. Well this makes that look like its in the dark ages still, well done future systems for bringing out something thats going to make users and engineers lives easier when it comes to cloning.

    Cons

    Nope, cant think of any yet and ive absolutely tested it to the tee, havnt tried raid yet tho but hey, i got faith! :)

    "Actually worked without problems"

    October 23, 2006  |   By timspear

    Version: Casper XP 3.0.1106

    Pros

    I wanted to upgrade my laptop's hard disk. Both Paragon and Acronis did not work, I couldn't even figure out how to work ghost, also tried 2 other programs.

    Finally Casper proved easy and effective!

    Cons

    None found yet

    "Better than advertised"

    August 30, 2006  |   By mikeline

    Version: Casper XP 3.0.1106

    Pros

    It is so simply designed a rank beginner can use it. Can't imagine needing tech support unless your just inquisitive.

    Cons

    I haven't had time to backup to all my devices. I have a SCSI stripe and back it up to my large SATA drive. I would like to save to my file storage computer, a USB external drive and try it on my 4gig Flash drive.

    "BLOWS GHOST OUT OF THE WATER"

    June 16, 2006  |   By richsaab

    Version: Casper XP 3.0.1106

    Pros

    I thought Ghost was the only product that could do a replaceable hard drive clone but it gave me so much trouble with errors and it required adding the clone drive and booting with a bootable DOS disk. Then I found Casper. Now I can do the cloning while running XP and leave my clone drive as part of the working computer. It is so simple to use and once the first clone is done, which took about 50 minutes for an 80 GIG drive, the following cloning processes only take about 5 minutes because Smartcloning adds only the changes to the cloned hard drive. The tech support is outstanding. I sent an email asking why the size of the clone drive used space was smaller than the original drive? The response took less than a half hour. Temp files, page files, etc are not copied. Guess what? Casper costs $30 less than Ghost. I recommed this product for your backup cloning.

    Cons

    Call it an opinion but logic tells me that a backup or clone should not be done while other programs are running. Casper says you can do this but how can you copy something that is changing?
