Iworked fine, took three hours tor cloning. Disconnected old drive, connected new one as master and I was done - well, maybe two boots - I don't remember now. But everything worked first time!!
None that were the fault of the software. I used an IDE to SATA adapter that causes a couple messages to come up at bootup; something like "this hardware may not work as expected" but it does. It only whines about it at bootup. I can live with that.
For a freebie, this is an extraordinary find, though it's not the most intuitive software I've seen. When it completed the back up, I wasn't sure of the next step. I went to the "new" drive and it still indicated the old data on it, (I had pulled it from another PC to put in this one) however, on a hunch, I shut down, installed that drive as C: and rebooted, it came up with the cloned data and ready to run. The old drive list must have been in memory or something at that time, I dunno. 'Point is, it worked fine except for the adapter hassle which is not a big factor in the overall operation and probably had nothing to do with the software. If you use one of those adapters, you might try it out first, if possible to see if you get the same messages- just a hindsight idea. Real bottom line - Great stuff! I'm hooked on Xxclone. Thanks, Xxclone guys!!
