    "You can grow old waiting for a disk to clone"

    May 19, 2014   |   By hayseed0a1

    Version: HDClone Free Edition 4.3.7

    Pros

    Easy to set up

    Cons

    My clone operation for a 30GB drive has been running for 11 hours and is 33% complete. Maybe it will finish by tomorrow.

    Summary

    The slow cloning is apparently built that way to get you to buy the 'fast' version. If you have forever to wait, it may be worth it.

    "Needed to clone a Win XP hard drive. Job done in 1 hr"

    September 16, 2013   |   By ehsho

    Version: HDClone Free Edition 4.3.4d

    Pros

    Quick to download
    Easy to install
    Drive cloned perfectly in an hour.

    Cons

    None for what I needed to do.

    Summary

    Needed to upgrade an XP machine with 80GB hard drive to 500GB. Downloaded HDClone and new drive was installed and running in about 1 hour. Absolutely no problems and all installed applications moved to new drive without any activation or password issues etc. Much easier and quicker than reinstalling everything. Hours of work saved.

    Version: HDClone Free Edition 4.3.2

    Pros

    None found

    Cons

    The whole application

    I wasted an entire day trying to get this to work with my old work XP pro laptop. After 3 attempts I have given up with this rubbish software.

    "good starting point for cloning"

    October 05, 2011   |   By damnameistaken

    Version: HDClone Free Edition 4.0.7

    Pros

    the bit fir bit is suberb. it saves time nad stress having to configure hd over and over. i use it for software testing in the class i am taking. when i have a problem i pull the bad drive and swap out for a fresh drive of the original os

    Cons

    one big limitation is if you dont have matching drives it will ot shrink or adapt to different sise drive.

    Summary

    good for a way to back up drive and transfer full hd not just a partition if you have matching drives.

    "Works well"

    June 28, 2011   |   By tiktin

    Version: HDClone Free Edition 4.0.4b

    Pros

    I did a disk clone with this program and it was trouble free and took an hour and ten minutes, which is about par for this type of operation.

    Cons

    There is no help file. The program offers you several options when cloning but unless you are familiar with this type of operation you won't know what they mean.

    Summary

    This is a well written, easy to use program which works as advertised. The problem is that the authors presume that you are an expert. There is no help file so that, unless you are an expert, you will not be able to take advantage of all the options which are offered. Also, you may not be able to understand all the info messages. You can still use the program, however. Just go with the defaults and skip the options.

    "Slow and doesn't finish"

    June 02, 2011   |   By brauworth

    Version: HDClone Free Edition 4.0.4b

    Pros

    Free, installs easily

    Cons

    Copy process taakes about 4 hrs. Then the "Media Adjustment" stage freezes the computer (Windows 7 Pro 64-bit), and never finishes. Tried twice.

    Summary

    Might be Windows 7 64-bit incompatible. Never could get it to finish.
