    "not easy to use. Not very helpful when done cloning"

    July 9, 2012  |   By Ron Geiken


    It seemed to be work OK, and did actually seem to clone the drive.


    When the cloning was done, my original drive still was the boot drive and some of the files on the that drive ended up in the original designation of the SSD which was M, and the rest was set up to be E. Now my M drive Now my M drive which was the SSD shows up as Reserved. This means that the cloning such as it was has two different drive designations.


    Not impressed with this program. I have the Free version, and when it got done told me I had to download a 1.7 gig file from Microsoft to do the back up in windows and I opted to do the recovery disc in Linux. They should have told you that when you started. All in all, not a very impressive program at the end even though it looked to start up OK. With the free edition, it gives you very little help to get the cloned drive to be set up as the C drive. Big promises, but very Small results!!!!!
