Clone Hard Drive Software
Backup Software / Features / Clone Hard Drive Software for HDD and SSD | Windows Drive Cloning Solution
Clone hard drive means creating a copy of a hard drive on another disk (which will be a “clone”). Using Handy Backup, you can clone HDD or SSD drives to an exact copy in a VHD format, accessing both local and network drive, and restore the image to a local or external disk (except a current system drive).

Hard drive cloning software creates not a simple copy of all files from one disk to another. Instead, it copies a disk mirror on a logical level, sector by sector, reading and replicating an internal hard disk structure including file allocation tables, boot records and all the information stored on a drive.
These are some necessary functions for any hard disk cloning tool, providing efficiency and stability. Handy Backup meets all these requirements, allowing scheduled, automated hard disk cloning, without stopping using a copied hard drive for other purposes during saving an HDD clone image.
A clone HDD software solution must allow automatic schedule for running tasks on a regular basis, by either a time (or an interval) or by an event occurred in the system.
Network-based editions of Handy Backup (e.g. Network and Server Network) can schedule and perform HDD clone on a remote machine in a local network under the centralized control.
To create a copy of a disk in use without compromising efficiency, hard disk mirroring tools must copy the drive content in a “hot” mode, e.g. without stopping using a disk by other applications.
As clone hard drive software for Windows and Linux, Handy Backup has some principal advantages over manual or script-based HDD clone jobs.

To clone HDD to HDD or (HDD to SSD, or any other possible media into another) with an automatic task for Handy Backup, please follow the next instruction.
After you finish, all done! Your tasks will run as a pair, one creating a HDD clone image and the next restoring this image into a different hard drive than an original. We will strongly advise to keep a big amount of space on the intermediate file storage where your clone lives before restoration!
The Handy Backup Disaster Recovery (HBDR) utility provides another way for software hard disk cloning. You can copy an entire drive to an external device containing a HBDR boot loader and then copy this drive clone to any other disk (including “bare metal” copying to a new or scratch PC).
