"Works but will not uninstall--permanent nag screen"

December 13, 2014  |  By kaslrant

 |  Version: FarStone DriveClone Free 11.0

Pros

Yes, it works and it is simple.

Cons

It did not uninstall. Leaves a permanent nag screen at boot time. I had to delete by hand and edit the registry. Evil.

Summary

If it really was FREE, then it would be great for one use. Unacceptable method of trying to get you to pay. Evil.

"It works. It's that simple. It works!"

October 03, 2014  |  By Sun Derek

 |  Version: FarStone DriveClone 10.02

Pros

It just does what it says it does. It clones.

Cons

None that I encountered.

Summary

I tried several of the highly rated programs on Cnet. None of them worked. Wasted several hours. The next day I saw this one. Decided to try it. My OS drive was cloned within an hour. It simply does the job.

"WORKS BUT IT IS RANSOM WARE"

July 20, 2014  |  By settone

 |  Version: FarStone DriveClone 10.0

Pros

Cloned ssd to ssd in win 8.1

Cons

They tell you that you get a popup add to buy at start up unless you purchase it for $50.00 and I would have paid for it if it worked but you don't purchase it you RENT it for $50.00 A YEAR! I have no idea what would happen if you stopped paying. I just pray nothing worse than the popup happens. Also it can not be uninstalled as it does not show up under programs or any uninstaller I have tried. Not even under task manager.

Summary

STAY AWAY RANSOM WARE!!!!

"Good! Try it!"

June 24, 2014  |  By marychuang

 |  Version: FarStone DriveClone 10.0

Pros

Very fast, runs as is expected, really easy to use (intuitive), so we recommend this tool as a must-have.

Cons

I like FarStone DriveClone.

Summary

Highly recommended program that will solve all your cloning tasks. FarStone definitely flags this software area as its own territory

"successfully clones a GPT HDD to a smaller SSD"

March 13, 2014  |  By Sally_Brooks

 |  Version: FarStone DriveClone 10.0

Pros

I bought a Samsung SSD and tried to use Samsung cloning tools. But, it didn't work.

However, I changed to use an Intel SSD and still get the negative result.

I have tried DriveClone to clone a GPT HDD to a smaller SSD without any problems.

Cons

It works well but I look forward to seeing more sophisticated functions.

Summary

It was free but now it charges. We may find a free version somewhere on the Internet.

"The onlyclone software work for my Samshung SSD"

February 14, 2014

 |  Version: FarStone DriveClone 10.0

Pros

It works.
UI is neat.
Better than I expected
Better than any the other 4 software that failed me.

Cons

Nothing found in my using. it is a great and very user friendly product.

Summary

I have tried a few other software and all failed. Including intel migrate, samsung ssd clone software, trueimage hd and something others i don't remember their names. Driveclone is the only one that did the job.

Updated on Feb 14, 2014

I agreed with bob. It is fair to have upgrade message for trial and freeware. If you don't like upgrade messages, you should not even try a free product. When it works for you you should either accept the upgrade message or just buy it.

"Best free home edition cloning software"

December 21, 2013  |  By fulmar1

 |  Version: FarStone DriveClone 10.0

Pros

User friendly, works with WIN 8.1, some claim to - but don't.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

Having updated from WIN 8 to 8.1, my factory settings were no longer a suitable backup, my cloned image holds my new OS and all my programs ready to go.

"Embeds commercial in your cloned drive"

October 21, 2013  |  By wrbirp

 |  Version: FarStone DriveClone 10.0

Pros

Works with Windows 8.1

Cons

After you do all this work to clone your drive they embed an ad that pops up every time you boot the cloned drive. They do not say this in their literature but afterwards they will say, buy one of our products and we will give you a key to make the ad go away

Summary

Unless you want to pay $50 this is just another annoying waste of time...
