Good Cloning software

about XXClone · ·

I have used XXClone & it is a good cloning software.
I cloned my C: drive with WIndows 8.1 on it to another empty partition F: drive on the same hard disk (~45 minutes depending on the size of the C: partition)
Then I ran the Make drive bootable from XXclone, & I suppose it did NOT work.
So I manually opened cmd as Administrator & type the following commands one by one:

a. bcdboot.exe F:\Windows - here the F: drive is the target drive for the clone.
b. bcdboot.exe F:\Windows /s F:

Running both the above commands made my F: drive Windows bootable & thus I had two bootable copies of the same OS in a DUAL BOOT configuration on the same laptop.

Good FREE alternative to CASPER software.

Works super-fast. I was migrating to a new HD and it took me just a few minutes to copy and replace; amazing!
