None of these programs are free... the downloads may be, but the programs are NOT! I downloaded HDCLone, and the free version has been running for 24 hours and is only 47% done. In order to get any speed, you have to BUY!
Also, 2 of the other programs make proprietary disk images rather than a CLONE of the original drive. This is something I will only use once, so I am not willing to pay over $25 for any of them.
I used "Ghost" up to version 10, I believe it was, but it got so expensive and would not work with the next version of Windows... just like the anti-virus programs... always asking for more money. I'm a retired old person with limited income, not a business making money with their software. Give a little guy a break! What ever happened to FREEWARE (that works!)?
