Image Backup Of Entire Hard Disk Using CloneGenius (Free!)

For some people, their hard disk means everything to them. Their collection of movies, songs, games and personal files are all stored in their hard disk. Therefore, a serious hard disk failure that may result in total or any data lost could be as bad as having the whole world crashing down on them.

I am one of these people. I store everything I have in my hard disk. My collection of photos taken ever since I bought my first Lumix digital camera is stored in my hard disk. Losing my hard disk means losing a part of my life. Knowing how important these photos are to me, I still fail to make an effort to properly backup of my hard disk.

I stumbled upon CloneGenius. It allows you to make an exact copy (image) of your hard disk for back up purposes. Some of the key features highlighted include:

  • Backup the operation system and restore it in the event of a fatal system crash or virus attack
  • Automatically scan the selected hard drive for recoverable files within minutes
  • Works with a wide range of hard drives and removable media, including USB drives
  • Clone Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, 2003 and Vista

For such a great tool, I am quite surprised that it is offered for FREE. There aren’t any advertisements on the website at all. I wonder how the owner plans to maintain the website which I am sure isn’t free.

I haven’t personally tried this software and I couldn’t find anything that may indicate CloneGenius with any spyware or spam. It is a nice backup tool so use it at your own risk.

    I haven’t tried out NG either but after reading how it works at the symantec website, both programs are used for backup. I think NG have more features too.
