"False advertising, doesn't work with Leopard"

January 01, 2012  |  By Cilarie

 |  Version: Winclone 2.3.3

Pros

Seems to do what I'd like to do: back up my Windows partition to my Mac partition, so that Time Machine will store the information for both.

Cons

When I loaded the program after setting it up as directed, an error message popped up saying that all of the Winclone versions 2.3 and later do not work with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). This is rather disappointing, as it was advertised to be compatible.

"Works with Lion. Indispensable."

December 18, 2011  |  By Freddie_the_Mac

 |  Version: Winclone 2.3.3

Pros

Simple to use and writes to NAS as well. Must have if you're serious about backing up Boot Camp.

Cons

Non. It's also free.

Summary

Excellent software. And thanks to the developer!

"A simple, reliable, and highly useful program."

December 10, 2011  |  By Al_Q--2008

 |  Version: Winclone 2.3.3

Pros

Small simple, free program that quickly backs up a boot camp partition.

Cons

It no longer compresses the saved images, so they are nearly twice as big as they used to be. But that's a minor flaw, apparently forced by changes in Apple's libraries.

Summary

An excellent free program that makes it easy to back up and restore a boot camp partition, and allows you to change the size at restore time (if you follow the instructions). THANKS to the current programmer who fixed the program (abandoned by it original author) after it was broken by recent changes from Apple. He deserves your donations.

"Many thanks to Brian Wilson"

December 02, 2011  |  By elireuven

 |  Version: Winclone 2.3.3

Pros

Does one important job and does it well.

Cons

None that I know of.

Summary

Many thanks to Brian Wilson for updating the background scripts for Winclone so that this app, functionally unique in the Mac world as far as I know, is once again working under the latest Snow Leopard release.
