Due to AweClone does not come close to being a useful tool for many users, and there have been several offers on GOTD of this same version, I would expect the developer to take a serious look at making the program as dependable as other programs that can clone a hard drive. That hasn't happened, so I have decided to test uninstalling all Magoshare programs on my system, and thankfully with the help of a good Uninstaller program, it is possible, and all remaining leftovers can be removed as well. Finally, Magoshare success.

As if all the negative reviews weren't enough, any software that claims it's the "Best Hard Disk Drive Cloning Software" and the "most powerful" is immediately not to be trusted. Let alone claims of non-existent awards, fake five star reviews and bad grammar on their website. Also interesting how the user reviews on their site all have the same bad grammar and all happen to have stock photos.

I CANNOT find anywhere to register this software. Installed and seems to open/function OK, but after uninstalling v2.2 and installing this v2.6, I see nowhere to enter a registration key, even after closing/opening the software repeatedly.

Please explain this before the offer ends!

Thanks!

Amazed to see how many FAILED TO OPEN... comments have been added to this review and the vendor has failed to respond. That's indication enough for me how Magoshare supports their product.

bromberg, Magoshare are not the developers, they bought in and rebranded a different companies product. Better to look at the original developers current product and see if that exhibits the same bugs

Well. it installed and activated fine on my Win7 laptop.
I connected a SSD through an USB>SATA box and cloned the internal HDD to it.
After a leghty procedure to disassemble the laptop, exchange the HDD for the SSD, and reassemble the laptop again, i tried to boot it...

Guess what... BSOD 0x7B - inaccessible boot device.

Trying the startup repair didn't help. While messing with it, i noticed that the SSD partitions all had wrong letters - the C: drive had become E:, the previously hidden boot partition had become C:, etc.
Currently without a working laptop until i find some time to put back the HDD...

Installed easily with no issues I but got exactly the same error as reported by others here: "Failed to open partition or disk" upon execution of software on my Dell XPS 8940 Win 10 x64 system. I used Revo Uninstaller to track the installation so maybe, like some other softwares I installed, it didn't like to be "traced" as to what files it put where? Don't know. Regardless, I do NOT install software that I can't trace its activities upon installation. Uninstalled via Revo Uninstaller Pro.

I couldn't figure out how to enter the software key. It show up as a trial version in Revo Uninstaller. Try Macrium Reflect. It works every time.

The Magoshare web-site (unlike GAOTD) states that this works on Windows 2000 and above, but an attempt to install it on XP gave the "This program requires Windows NT version 5.1 Service Pack 4 or later" error message.

Reply   |   Comment by BAW30s  –  23 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

Hello!
You can find SP4 here: https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/windows_xp_service_pack_4_unofficial.html
However, an English version of XP-32 is required.

Reply   |   Comment by Disaccord  –  23 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Disaccord, there is no XP SP4 regardless of what anyone says, the fault is due to the inno installer script incorrectly specifying NT v 5.1 SP4 when it was supposed to specify NT v 5.0 SP4 for Windows 2000 SP4.

The software works similar to the Wuhan Flu. It's over-hyped, makes you unstable, and made in China. Enough said...

Does anyone know if this (or any other ?) cloning software will work for replacing the pair of Raid 0 SSD's C: drive(s) in a laptop to upsize them with larger capacity SSDs ?

Reply   |   Comment by BobbyA  –  23 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-4)

Google. You'll find lots of info saying ditch RAID 0, but if that's what you want, clone the raid pair to a single drive, replace SSDs, rebuild RAID 0 setup, then clone from single drive to RAID pair.

Had my doubts on this giveaway today, But I installed it to see what it would do and I really like this giveaway today. I cloned my hard drive to another ext. hard drive in 20 minutes and it was perfect. Now I have a backup of Windows in case my hard drive gets corrupted. Thank you again GAOTD & I recommend this giveaway today. (2 thumbs up).

"I cloned my hard drive to another ext. hard drive in 20 minutes and it was perfect. Now I have a backup of Windows in case my hard drive gets corrupted. "

A disk/partition image contains the same data in a smaller archive file, usually a VHD that can be mounted to access individual files & folders, so you don't waste an entire drive, and can be restored to the same internal drive or a new one if the drive fails. AFAIK having a cloned drive for backup is only efficient if your PC / laptop / server lets you swap drives without disassembling anything, so you're only down the time it takes to swap & reboot.

After full successful installation, and correct activation, the software opens with an error (Win 10 x64 HP). Complains that "cannot open partition," and the system disk is not shown. Maybe unique to my system?

Thank you for this free offer.
Question for which I did not find the answer in the user guide : my hd crashes tomorrow, i have to use the clone on another hd, new, without AweClone installed, and the free offer of Gotd will be over, so what ?

Reply   |   Comment by Jean Némar  –  23 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+17)

If your hard disk crashes tomorrow & you haven't already performed a backup, or in this case cloned the drive, you've missed the boat... if the hard drive failed, you can't get the data off it to clone to a new drive -- if Windows is trashed, you'll just be copying the same trashed Windows to another drive. In either case you'd have to start over, reinstalling Windows, software etc. -- not having a registered copy of AweClone would be the least of your troubles.

Reply   |   Comment by mike  –  23 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+8)

mike, You completely misunderstood the question. They're asking if the program is required to restore a disk image, not talking about somehow using this on a knackered drive.

Reply   |   Comment by JDP  –  23 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Jean Némar,
This isn't BACKUP software, it is CLONING software. It is designed to make an identical copy of one hard drive onto another. This software isn't meant for the type of situation you are referring to. You should be looking into BACKUP software to handle what you are talking about.
If your hard drive dies, it's dead, you aren't going to be cloning it after the fact. If you have already made a clone of the dead drive ONTO A DIFFERENT DRIVE, then you don't need the software. You simply remove the dead drive from your PC and install the second hard drive, that contains the clone of the original, and you are back up and running.
You will loose everything that has changed on your OLD hard drive since the clone, but at least your PC will up and running. Not an ideal situation, but again, this isn't designed for that type of situation.

Works ok in 32bit Vista with SATA drives in ATAPI mode but does not find any drives in windows 10 with controlled folder access enabled with NVME drives and a SATA AHCI drive. All the drives are GPT drives so that could also be a reason why the program fails to see them too. This is exactly the same version as offered in previous two giveaways of this in Feb and Oct 2020 https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/?s=AweClone

The zip bundle has identical spelling too including the code at the end of the filename which will prompt for overwriting the existing files when doing an Extract All operation. The license codes are different from previous giveaways, presumable because those codes have been expired for fresh activations a long time ago.
