HDClone creates physical or logical copies (clones) and file images of hard disks and other mass storage media. HDClone is the perfect tool for backups and for creating copies of entire software or operating system installations. A special SafeRescue mode makes HDClone an invaluable tool for rescuing defective hard disks and other media. HDClone works independent of partitioning scheme, file system and operating system. It also works with proprietary formats which would otherwise be inaccessible.
