HDClone Professional can create a bootable clone, which means you can use the cloned copy to replace your original hard disk and restore it. One thing to note is that the restoration also copies the bootable drive's original MBR and GPT changes; it does not preserve the system's original bootloader (such as GRUB or LILO). The cloned drive is slightly larger than the original. The backup drive's MBR and GPT are preserved when restoring the cloned drive. Additional partition changes when restoring the cloned drive will be handled when the cloned drive is booted in the working environment.
for advanced users, HDClone Professional or HDClone Enterprise Edition have more features when cloning. The cloned drive has a true cloning level, no matter the original drive's bootable partition format, partitioning scheme, and file system or the cloned drive's type. It can be used to backup a partition that is not bootable, including bootable, dynamic disks. It can also clone a partition from a GPT or MBR format to to a GPT or MBR format when the target is a non-bootable disk.
HDClone Professional and Enterprise Edition support several different operating systems. With HDClone Professional, the user can easily back up Windows as a DVD image, or disk image, to bootable DVDs or CDs. It can also create disk images or create disk images, with one or multiple options, and then turns the disk images to bootable Live images.
drives can be easily cloned to other drives. If the target drive is not bootable, the cloned drive will also be bootable. And it's also possible to backup a disk of a drive-by-drive or by folder, so it can backup disks from the root directory to its subdirectories. d2c66b5586
