Wiped Out

about XXClone · ·

Usually I don't post comments related to software. Unless it has catastrophic consequences.

I've been using it for years on a XP machine and worked flawlessly. Used only once (ver2.07.2) on a new Win7 64 bit last year and did the job alright.
When tried again ( April 2016 ) I ran into a forced update message and downloaded ver 2.08.1.

What happened next is deeply concerning. Tremendous hard-drive thrashing noise on install, wiped out ( never to be found again in Bin on anywhere else ) 90% of installed .exe files , associated files and folders in Program Files, at least one more in Program Files(86) .

Hopefully I had a backup and managed to restore them. Not sure what caused it but on a quick search I stumbled upon similar comments on CNet. Either it's a new Windows protection against cloning or just buggy software, so far no warning or fix on XXClone's website.

This comment concerns only ver 2.08.1.
