    How to clone on software program?


    I recently bought Win 10 desktop. Installed a unique software program from some time ago. I would like to preserve it in the state it is in now and have it cloned somehow so I recovered it later if necessary. I bought the program and modified it a little. Is is not supported by the manufacturer anymore.

    Any thought on how to clone this program? Or best to clone entire C drive with Macrium or Acronis? Then would one of these allow me to just to recover the single program in the future?

    Thank you.

    SM

    Moving to SSD. Clone or not to clone?

    I kinda agree with you, but on a wholr, do not. While I have done things a bit differently than this specific situation, by installing Windows directly to the SSD, and cloning after, my testing shows that there are no issues doing this, very little that can go wrong, provided your system is stable.

    There are certain features that must be disabled in this situation, like auto defrag and such, but even with a fresh install to the SSD, you need to take steps to ensure that you SSD performs properly, regardless of how the data got there.

    Arming yourself with a bit of knowledge can go a long way.

    Installing the latest chipset driver, and the RST Tools, will ensure optimal performance of the SSD. but rather than taking my advice, I suggest the OP takes a look here:

    Installing The SSD - Install A Solid State Drive In Your Notebook

    Keep in mind, also, Digibucc, that many retail drives include software and such that very specifically is to be used to ttranser the OS from an existing mechanical drive to an SSD, and if there really was alot fo issues stemming from the cloning process, they would not have packages like that, simply to eliminate tech support costs. While not the optimal option, cloning is NOT a bad thing, as long as you take the nessecary steps.

  3. Need network drive cloning software

    I'm looking into putting some backup storage at work and want some drive cloning software. Looking for something that will clone any drive over the network and be able to do it while the drive is running/has programs running on a schedule. Anyone got any ideas?
