Win HD cloner - Apricorn

I'm the IT grunt for my company (all Dell Windows gear) and I bought an Apricorn "Hard Drive Adapter" a year ago to clone PCs' HDs. It comes with a nifty dual PATA/SATA adapter plug, power (wall wart) power supply (to power the external drive), a USB cable, and a software CD. It lets me clone in any combination: external to/from internal, workstation(3.5")/laptop(2.5"), PATA/SATA. The software CD contains support for cloning MAC drives (via Shirt-Sleeve's SuperDuper!) and Windows drives .. making bootable HDs in both environments. It couldn't be easier to use and it's saved my bacon on several PC occasions. I have not used it with MACs Intel platform .. dunno how well it works with cloning such drives.

I bought it from a local computer store, and you can order it from the company's website <B></B> .. depending upon what promotions are going at the time, it sells for $29.95 or $39.95.

No, I don't work for Apricorn - nor Shirt-Sleeve. Hope this helps.
