Copying and Migration

  • Many people clone hard disks and partitions just to back up data for security reasons as it enables to successfully transfer all on-disk information including standard bootstrap code and other system service structures, thus maintaining the operating system's working capability. In case of a system malfunction, the user can get the system back on track in minutes. No additional configuration is required, what is very convenient.

    The second possible application is the upgrade of a hard disk to a new one. The capacity of a modern hard drive doubles every two years, thus opening up new possibilities for software developers. As a result programs become more complicated and require considerable amount of free space. One day the user realizes that there is no more free space left on the hard disk and the only way out is to upgrade. Usually that means that besides purchasing a new hard disk, the user is to face a large re-installation procedure spanning several days of tedious work. But all of this can be avoided just by copying the contents of the old hard disk to a new one proportionally resizing the partitions.

    And the last but not least is the copying of hard disks for cloning purposes. It may be of great use when setting up similar computers. There is no need for a system administrator to install an operating system from scratch on every one of them. It is enough just to configure one and then clone it to the others.

    Our program offers a number of copy facilities:
    1. Copy Hard Disk to successfully transfer all on-disk information including standard bootstrap code and other system service structures;
    2. Copy Partition to duplicate all partition data including files, the exact structure of directories and file system metadata The servicing structures of a file system, which contain information about allocating files and directories, security information etc, are named file system metadata. File system metadata are invisible for users and ordinary applications because accidental modifications of the metadata usually make a partition unusable. (location of files, security information, access quotas, etc.).
