When to use Disk Copy?
Upgrading hard disks
Disk Copy is especially useful if you want to replace the older smaller hard disk by a newer larger hard disk without having to install the Operating System and applications once again. The media used as destination should be of the same size as the source media or larger to ensure that all data will be copied.
In case of hard disks with defective areas it is especially important to back up data to an intact medium before starting any recovery attempts because the recovery procedure may cause further defects resulting from the inherent exposure of this procedure, while the physical copying of Disk Copy causes much less exposure than any other usage due to its linear operation. After backup, you can perform a recovery on the destination medium without having to fear any further damages.
