    "Doesn't work with SSD drives even they claim it does."

    January 5, 2013  |   By Jacko12345678

    Version: Casper 7.0

    Pros

    Works well with old type HDDs. Fast and convinient, but only with old HDDS

    Cons

    Doesn't work with SSDs. Copy is working otherwise but you will need to run W7 installation disk to fix lost boot manager after every copy to start your Windows. Tech support is not interested to fix the problem, just repeating old phrase "it works well with SSD.s". I guess their R&D has stalled.

    Summary

    Recommend if ou are using old style HDDs, but if you have SSD, forget it.

    "Works. SSD to HDD and HDD to SSD. Windows 7 64 bit."

    December 4, 2012  |   By mongo546

    Version: Casper 7.0

    Pros

    Had Windows 7 64 bit home Premium on HDD. Bought an SSD. Plugged it into my SATA II connectors, installed Casper 7 on my HDD, backed it up (live, while still doing work on my computer) to my SSD. A bit slow for 200gb, took about 1 hr 40 min. Rebooted to the SSD. It worked. SSD became my boot disc. Used Casper to clone to another HDD. Again, did it while doing other work, still took close to 2 hr for the 200gb. Rebooted to the new HDD. It worked. Casper succeeded where Drive XML, Miray CloneHD, Windows Backup, and Acronis TrueHome all failed like dying rodents stinking up an Alabama roadway in the middle of August.

    Cons

    Have to read the !@#$ instructions to learn all the fancy autobackup stuff.

    Summary

    It works. Haven't tried the boot CD method, mostly because I believe in cloning my discs as a backup so I don't have to wait to get back up and running in case of crash.

    "Source drive problems will crash everything!"

    September 22, 2012  |   By OLDXTECH

    Version: Casper 7.0

    Pros

    Great product BUT wait for next version.

    Cons

    They have a known problem in ver 7. If your source drive has problems, Casper will not know and try to mirror to the destination drive. The mirror will fail, rendering the destination drive in a RAW [unformatted]state, thus killing any data already on the destination drive [your prior backup!!!]
    They are fixing in the next version. Only solution is to have multiple mirrors and do a disk drive health checkup prior to running. Use Drive Monitor from Acronis [or just buy Acronis].

    Summary

    Wait and see.

    "Easy, Simple and Works Great!"

    May 7, 2012  |   By Simon_Chow

    Version: Casper 7.0

    Pros

    One Click does it all.

    Cons

    Volume re-sizing disabled for free30-day trial, and you have to pay $49.95 for full version.

    Summary

    Volume re-sizing is very easy through windows "Administrative Tools" :- "Computer Management".

    "straightforward program does what it's supposed to do"

    March 30, 2012  |   By agastache

    Version: Casper 7.0

    Pros

    You want to back up your system in the simplest way possible? That's what this program does, without offering unnecessary options that only confuse non-techie people like me. After the initial backup, additional backups are very quick because there is no encryption. You can access any file on the backup, and if your computer allows you can even boot from it.

    Cons

    None at all.

    Summary

    If you decide to get this program, make sure you also get the startup disk.
