    "Fell from Grace - My EX brand of choice"

    February 1, 2014  |   By HooperPC

    Version: XXClone 2.01.2

    Pros

    Used to be easy to use
    Formerly cloned with minor flaws.

    Cons

    Took three attempts, tweaking source drive to get bootable clone.
    Must track # clone attempts since it erroneously reports XXclone is out of dates and closes executable.
    Destination drive must have been corrupted as basic file operations were extremely slow.

    Summary

    I used earlier version of XXCLONE several times between 2002 and 2011 and it worked well. (The OSes were WIN 98, 2000, and Win XP 32 bit machines). This latest version was an exercise in futility. First, I had trouble cloning my IDE to a new SATA drive. Clone wouldn't boot. 2nd time got around it by NOT copying the boot.ini file in Cool Tools, but then File Shares, a printer and Windows Explorer were unusable. Then the new drive started corrupting files. 3rd time got all but Windows Explorer working right, so I gave up.
    Try another FREE product. There are many out nowadays and the one I chose worked the first time, has better features, and the same new drive works great two months in.

    "It missed stuff"

    July 28, 2013  |   By howardferns

    Version: XXClone 2.01.2

    Pros

    It's free.
    Moderately straightforward to understand.
    The files that it did clone were perfect (read below for explanation).

    Cons

    Took all day to clone 80 GB to another hard drive.
    On completion, it had only copied about half of my files.

    Summary

    Thought this free software would help when I installed a new hard drive. I set it to clone the entire original drive onto the new one. I started it in the morning, it had just finished by bedtime. When I checked the new hdd it contained some of my programs but not others, some docs and photo folders were missing too. As far as I am concerned it was a waste of time on a grand scale.
    Then I got a copy of Norton Ghost, which took something like 15 minutes to do the same job, with a 100% perfect result.

    "Cloning ruined my hard drive"

    March 30, 2013  |   By Barolo

    Version: XXClone 2.01.2

    Pros

    None at this point

    Cons

    It destroyed my C: drive
    None of the installed programs are working any more.
    All executables (.exe files) have been removed by the cloning procedure.
    It looks like I have to re-install all the programs I have accumulated over the years.
    Thank goodness the data files are still there.

    Summary

    What good is a cloning/backup software if it f*ks up the original drive.
    Use at your own peril.

    "File identified as too old and install halted."

    February 22, 2013  |   By bookie1960

    Version: XXClone 2.01.2

    Pros

    Have not had the opportunity to test this product because it would not install (PC had correct date).
    Pity, in Win XP days XXClone was fast, accurate and intuitive to use.

    Cons

    Mid February 2013 downloaded from CNET but install stopped with a message "File over twelve months old" CNET stated last update as less than a month ago.
    I went to the XXClone site as instructed, did the download from there and got the same message when I tried to install. I sent an Email to XXClone about a week ago but have not had a response to date. I don't really expect one now. Found a different product that did the job, though nowhere near as efficiently as XXclone used to be.

    Summary

    Product would not install due some "out of date" problem. Problem happened from both CNET and XXClone sites. I have previously used XXClone and found it fast and accurate but stopped using it when it did not support Win7.
    Why not allow the download but run an auto update on completion. Many other companies use this approach.
