Clone Maxx

PC INSPECTOR? clone maxx is the new professional hard drive copying program from CONVAR. Using the new direct DMA support, data can be copied from hard drives in high speed mode with speeds up to 3.3 GB per minute.

This high speed is achieved by PC INSPECTOR? clone maxx through intelligent inspection of the PC motherboard and the hard drive controller. The software independently determines the fastest data transmission rate and achieves these exceptional speeds through optimal utilization of the DMA chipset on the motherboard of your PC.

PC INSPECTOR? clone maxx can be started directly from a boot diskette. The copying process is always based on the physical drive and is independent of the file system (e.g. FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, HPFS, NTFS, Ext2, Reiser, etc.) or the number of partitions.

Big update to DriveImage XML?
July 18th, 2008

" There is a new version of DriveImage XML available today. We now have a new option on compression and we have made the software much faster.

Lets have a look...." (please see the developers blog)

There are a few issues with the new version. The image you make on the new version is not compatible with the old version and vice versa. If you have a BartPE with the old version, rebuild it with the new version as the image will not restore with the old software.

Runtime Software: DriveImage XML

RDilly is program that makes a backup copy of the NT,2K,XP registry. It's very similar to System Restore found in WinME and WinXP. You get a point-in-time copy of the registry labeled with the date it was made. You also are able to restore the registry to this point-in-time copy.

Windows NT,2K,XP or higher. For Vista, this program must be run as Administrator to function.

Freeware, of course!

cloning ATA/SATA/USB media with up to new: 1.0 GB/min

NEW: Transfers up to 18 MB/sec (= 1 GB/min)
NEW: HotCopy & LiveImage (creating clones and images while Windows is running)
NEW: ext2/ext3 AutoExpand (automatic upsizing during copying)

The Free Edition of HDClone clones an entire hard disk to another, larger medium. Use it for migrating an existing installation to a new hard disk or for rescuing data. The Free Edition is real freeware without obligation to buy and is intended for the short-term usage at no cost. In case of more frequent usage, we recommend using one of the higher editions since they offer higher performance, support for a wider range of hardware, and additional options which are optimized for regular or professional use.

The download package contains HDClone as a Windows application (HDClone/W) and as a self-booting application (HDClone/S). You can easily create a bootable HDClone/S floppy disk or CD/DVD on Windows with only few mouse clicks. A floppy image, ISO image, and manual (PDF) are also enclosed.
