DriveClone Free: Copy your operating system to a new HD or SSD


Cloning one or more hard drives is a process that over time finds great acceptance by professionals as well as ordinary PC users. In essence, this is how we manage to create an exact copy of our operating system and not just to transfer our data from an old hard drive to a new one without having to install our operating system and our favorites from scratch. programs.

For example, if we want to add an SSD or a new hard drive to our laptop, all we have to do is use this method and transfer our operating system to our new drive. From there we either remove the old HD and put in its place the new one or very simply through the Bios we change the boot way in such a way that when our computer starts it sees our new disk as the first boot device.

DriveClone is one of the most popular programs that can help us achieve our goal, it automatically clones your entire operating system or your entire hard drive including system files, applications, music files, photo documents, and of Partitions documents. But what makes DriveClone different from other cloning applications is that it not only clones your data, it also allows you to resize partitions, exclude files from cloning, defrag an entire system, and remove temporary files.

It can also do other interesting things like for example clone and convert your hard disk into VM files (Virtual Machine Files) that you can run with any virtual machine like VMware Workstation. However, for now we will only focus on cloning.



Start cloning a hard drive, after running the program select one time cloning


Select the Partition or hard disk you want to clone and the program will automatically target the hard disk with the corresponding capacity, however if you have multiple disks or partitions on your computer click on the one you want to transfer the files to and press Next.

In the next tab you will see that the program has two ways of cloning, (rapid cloning) and (normal cloning), the difference between them is that the first is much faster, however the second, although slower due to the defrag it performs will have as a result, your new hard drive is free of fragmentation, which simply means that your new hard drive will perform at its best.

Finally before you start after making sure you have not made a mistake click on the start button to start cloning.
This version is completely free, although some features are missing in the full version, however for the function we described you will not encounter any problems.
