Q: Which type of cloning is done by Geeksnerds Drive Clone?

A: Geeksnerds Drive Cloning software performs sector by sector cloning.

Q:  What type of cloning is recommended?

A: Forward Cloning is recommended for normal drive. If the drive has bad sectors, default cloning is recommended. In default mode the software will clone the healthy area of drive first making the chances of data loss less and less.

Q:  What should be done in case of bad sectors?

A: Geeksnerds Drive Cloning software supports drive having bad sectors and clones data from such drives. The user has to set the number of read retries if encountered with bad sectors. If the software detects 5 consecutive bad sectors, it will take a jump of 1 GB in case of default mode. Then it will come back to the damaged areas for image creation after reading healthy areas. During the default mode, the user can pick the forward and backward option. The software will start in forward direction if default forward mode is picked. It will read all healthy areas in the forward direction and then reads the damaged jumped areas in the backward direction.


One morning when I woke up I was shocked to see that my hard disk had been crashed and all important data had vanished. I didn’t have any idea whom to contact in this critical situation. I talked to my friend and he gave me their number and I contacted them with no hope of recovery of my data. I don’t know how they did it but all my important data was recovered in a matter of two days. Thank you Geeksnerds for fixing my hard disk.

I am a student and an NTFS user. For the completion of my degree I had to complete my thesis work. All my important project work was in my system. My younger brother accidentally deleted my files. I had no one to get help from as I was unaware of the fact that my data could still be recovered until I checked Geeksnerds site and downloaded Free Recovery software. I am doing a job now and I owe it completely to you people

I can't express my disbelief at the fact that I was able to recover some very important data which I had lost after formatting my hard disk. It’s truly amazing how great this software is, even more unbelievable is the fact that it's absolutely easy to use, 3 cheers to Geeksnerds
