Portable USB Drive Clone 1.02
One of the most useful aspects of USB drive is its versatility and speed. Many organizations utilize USB flash drives and other miniature storage devices connected to your PC using a USB port to transfer data. Copying files from one USB drive to another simply takes the usual drag-and-drop method in File Explorer on Windows, as we all know. If you are duplicating all the data sector by sector and keeping all the low-level data intact, you need special software.
The USB Drive Clone Portable software creates a precise sector-by-sector copy of a USB drive, including but not limited to MBR (Master Boot Record), boot records, OS boot loaders, partition tables, active partition flags, and all partitions as well as space in between. Even hidden partitions can be duplicated. USB Drive Clone software recognizes more than 293 partition types, even if an unknown partition type could be duplicated without extra effort. The software does not rely on the file system or the operating system on the USB drive; it could be Windows, Linux, Unix, MacOS, or any other OS with a good number of partitions. Bad sectors can be detected by the software, and the software always tries 3 times to read the data out of the bad sectors. In case you would like to make an accurate copy of a to-be-damaged USB drive and attempt data recovery as much as possible, just give it a go! The software becomes handy for those who desire for an exact copy of a USB drive.
The supported USB drives include USB memory stick, USB flash drive, USB pen drive, USB thumb drive, and portable USB drive. The software is an alternative to such hardware devices as USB drive duplicator, USB drive copier, USB drive copy machine, multi-port USB cloner, that work without a host computer. All you have to do is to plug in two USB drives, and tell the software the source and the target USB drive for data duplication. The software performs synchronous duplication other than asynchronous duplication meaning that no image file of the source USB drive is created in the course of the data duplication. You are allowed to adjust the clone speed, and more than 16 levels are available. The top one makes data duplication blazing fast, however it uses more system memory in the course. Serial number is never cloned by the software, as it is a unique hardware identification embedded in the firmware of the USB drive. An interesting feature of the software is safe removal, which allows to eject either one USB drive or both USB drives after the data duplication process completes so that you can unplug the USB drive(s) from your host computer.
If you wish to create a mirror image of your USB drive and perform a sector-by-sector duplication for multiple USB drives as the targets, please use USB Drive Backup software. If you have a plan to scrub all the data on your source USB drive before throwing it away, USB Secure Erase software offers you quick-erase, full-erase and secure-erase options.
USB Drive Clone software does not collect file system information from your USB drive, as it is a low-level access and raw disk access software. All the known file systems including NTFS, FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, exFAT, UDF, ReFS, EXT2, EXT3, EXT4, XFS, btrfs, Files-11, VMFS, ZFS, ReiserFS, ScoutFS, APFS, HPFS, HFS, HFS+, UFS, OS/2, JFFS2, UBIFS, YAFFS, SquashFS, QFS, VxFS, PC-BSD, Flat, Plan 9, OpenVMS, MVS, CMS, and AS/400 file systems, are supported. Bootable USB drives are USB drives with boot records and OS boot loaders, and they can be cloned by the software without loss of the bootable characteristic and capability.
USB Drive Clone software supports more than 20 USB drive controller brands, such as Intel, Samsung, Micron, Phison, SMI, Marvell, Toshiba, Silicon Motion, PMC, Sierra, OCZ, JMicron, Maxiotek, Goke, Greenliant, Fusion-io, Realtek, SanDisk, Western Digital, Hyperstone, Novachips, VIA, and FADU.
