HDClone Free Edition makes it easy to clone, create images, or back up drives and data.
Clear layout: Options are cleanly laid out in four categories, from Cloning to Tools, with large icons and text labels for subcategories. Once you initiate a task, HDClone automatically detects drives. In general, you just need to choose a destination.
Flexible install options: You can opt to install the software, or you can create a bootable USB drive if you want to take HDClone with you on the go.
ZIP file: HDClone comes in a ZIP file and has two executable files. We had to crack open the Help file to understand which one to use. Not a big deal, since that just made the program more flexible, but more descriptive file names wouldn't be a bad idea.
Help file: The Help file is extensive (86 pages), but if you aren't already tech-savvy, it might not be very useful.
This app does exactly what it promises to do. If you want more options and features, you'll need to upgrade. But if you just need the basics, you can get them free of charge with HDClone.
