"This actually creates a bootable clone of Windows"

August 04, 2010  |  By getmeek

 |  Version: Shadow Copy Cloner 1.0.2

Pros

It creates a clone of Windows that actually works, unlike my experience with Acronis Trueimage and other programs that claim to perform that function. It creates clone directly on the target disk, with no need to create an image and then restore it.

Cons

The running log shows many files that are not copied. So far, those files do not appear to be needed for the clone to function.

Summary

I have tried just about all of the programs that claim to create bootable clones of Windows. The last one that worked well was XXClone, but development on that stopped with Windows XP. The difference with Shadow Copy Cloner is that it actually worked to create a bootable clone of Windows 7.

I have spent hours on technical support trying to get other products to work, without success.

With Shadow Copy Cloner, the first clone of the boot drive took a long time, because is it apparently copying filie-by-file. On my system, the first clone took 14 hours. But later that week the incremental clone took only 15 minutes to complete.

A key feature is that it creates the clone directly on the target disk, with no need to create an image and then restore it. The routine of "create image - restore image" is both time-consuming and unreliable. Think about it. If your regular boot drive fails, how are you going to restore the image? You have to boot from a CDROM and try to restore the image to a new drive. Will it work? You will not know until you try it. For me, this routine simply did not work, no matter how many times I told the Windows 7 installation disk to "repair" the new drive to make it bootable.

But Shadow Copy Cloner worked.
