MiniTool Drive Copy

MiniTool Drive Copy 5.0

It is a neat disk copy application and disk cloning tool

Most of the time, in order to protect your data, creating a backup of it is the best solution. MiniTool Drive Copy is a handy solution for performing the backup tasks, as it enables you to copy and clone FAT, NTFS partitions, IDE, SATA, SCSI and removable drives.

The interface is quite easy to use, as it provides you with just two main data transfer options, 'Disk to Disk' and 'Partition to Partition'. The 'Disk to Disk' option enables you to back up the entire selected disk to another drive, while 'Partition to Partition' allows you to clone a specific partition. Unfortunately, all data from the partition where the new copy will be created is erased in the backup process.

As a definite plus, I would like to mention that this program is free. It also comes with fast copying speed - while testing it, I cloned a 92 GB partition in about 2 minutes. The finished clone was fully operational and no errors occurred in the process.

In conclusion, MiniTool Drive Copy proves to be a really useful application which I advise you to install on your PC as it can reliably back up your drives and partitions and protect your data the case of system crashes.
