Why Need Disk Cloning Software?

Just like its name, in brief, disk cloning refers to clone copy the entire content of a disk to another disk or to an image file. It can be used for many purposes. Meanwhile, we also need a powerful and free disk cloning software to carry out the operations as well. Let's see its usages first.

  • First, users can clone the disk to achieve hard disk upgrading. For instance, it can upgrade an old and small hard disk to a new and larger hard disk, which can help to figure out the "low running speed" problem raised by "low disk space". Moreover, it can upgrade disk from a damaged one to a good one, as well as from a HDD (Hard Disk Drive) to a SSD (Solid State Disk).

  • Second, after the users buy new hard disk drive, it is better to clone the whole disk to an image file after installing Windows operating system and the applications. It can help to get rid of reinstallation of OS and application when there is something bad happens.

  • Third, cloning system drive with some cloning software can do great help in both personal and business use. The one system disk can be cloned to apply to each computer within a company to save time of installed OS. Also, it can be transferred to your friends with the same configuration.

From the demonstrations above, disk cloning can do great help in disk management. Then, as for the free disk cloning software, I would like to suggest AOMEI Backupper to the users.
