Geeksnerds Drive Clone
In Cloning, an exact image or duplicate of one hard disk drive or partition is created onto another hard disk drive. Imaging is vital for data recovery because most of time, bad sectors on any hard disk drive make the drive or partition inaccessible. By creating a disk image of a faulty drive onto a healthy disk drive, data on a faulty drive could be accessed from the healthy drive. Sometimes, the number of bad sectors on a hard disk is high. In, those cases, data recovery software should be used to recover data after creating a disk image or clone of bad hard drive onto a healthy hard drive. Demo version can clone hard drive up to 120 GB.

Geeksnerds Drive Clone creates a sector-by-sector disk drive image. This means that the empty sectors will stay empty on destination disk drive and the sectors, which have information, are written with the same information on the destination drive. If a hard drive is detected in Bios but the partition is not accessible then Geeksnerds Drive Clone software could be used to make an image of faulty disk drive onto a healthy drive. This software is equipped with functionality of multiple attempts to clone bad sectors in backward and forward direction. If a faulty drive has too many areas with bad sectors, then it will clone the healthy area first by leaving the area with bad sectors and try to read the damaged areas in the end.
Geeksnerds Drive Clone images hard drives or partitions irrespective of size, format or brand. This cloning program can image "hard drive to hard drive", "partition to partition" and "partition(s) to hard drive". It can clone primary, extended or logical partition. It supports USB, ATA/IDE and SATA, SCSI and SAS hard drives. It clones any type of data placed on source drive. Geeksnerds Drive Clone has sector viewer, which helps to map the drive or partitions.
Cloning is also important for data backup as cloning creates a backup image. Geeksnerds Drive Clone tool makes an exact copy of the source on destination. This tool can backup hard drives as well as partition on external USB hard disk drive, flash drive and firewire. In partition to drive cloning, only the desired partition looks healthy on destination drive and other space remains raw. The cloning utility can also create image of dynamic discs.
