I installed this AweClone 2.6 yesterday and now I have a new windows. It cause boot error on windows 10 located in Bitlocker partition. I tried to repair boot BCD, however, I had to reinstall finally windows.

Bad choice for security software.

The program tells me that it can't select my C drive so there is no way I can back up my system that's on a solid state drive.
I wanted to clone my C drive onto a bigger solid state drive which I can't do so this program is of little value to me.

Note as with previous giveaway of this exact build the installer script is broken for Windows 2000 SP4 and Windows XP any service pack as the inno install script incorrectly demand Windows NT 5.1 Service Pack 4 or better which means Windows XP SP4 which DOES NOT EXIST or better. The script is supposed to be checking for NT 5.0 Service Pack 4 or better which would be Windows 2000 SP4 which DOES EXIST or better and so include XP any service pack.
The VENDORS were informed of this installer script bug in the comments of the previous giveaway but have not edited the install.iss script and rebuilt the installer to resolve it so either they do not care the installer is faulty or they lack any developer of their own and rely upon the original developers of EasUS Drive Copy they bought and rebranded as this.

TK, ALL, No one knows how many other bugs programs contain, with many companies ignoring such obvious bugs for years.
I draw attention to it every year, but without a response, so using their programs is risky.

JardaH, thankfully as tehy are not the developers of the program just a rebrand reseller and the EASEUS original product has the correct install script there is a chance the program is usable. I did not use it when I recently migrated from a 1TByte main drive to a new 2TByte main drive in my laptop... I used a different program. I forget which it was at the moment which is one of the problems of having so many different programs that can do the same thing LOL
I beleive I did in a previous giveaway from this vendor extract the installers contents and edit the script myself to correct and then recompile the installer and it worked just fine, proving it was not rocket science and one did not need special access for this companies "developers" to fix the long standing bug.
Excellence is not something we see very often from these developers/vendors.

I would like some assurance from the developers that the whole disk clone is FAULT TOLERANT where it will not stall the clone operation if a damaged sector is encountered during the disk clone operation, after all that is often when one has been forced to buy a new disk drive and needs to clone and continue uusing the system. MOST unreadable sectors do not break a system and just force remapping the lost sector can be recovered from by NTFS journelling or by windows file protection or file backup regimes... Disk cloning should be resiliant enough to handle one or more unreadable sectors and let other tools resolve any possible lost data in those unreadable sectors on the new good drive by other means.

Uninstalled my older AweClone and installed no problem. There is no place to put the activation code. Is Activation automatic? I do not see a place to activate in the dropdown list.

Based on the article at https://tuneprom.com/licenses/213-aweclone-free-license.html
there is a popup to put Activation Code when you buy it.

Please clarify

D_Ram, no you don't! There is no such version of Windows NT version 5.1 SP4! There is Windows NT version 5.0 SP4 and Windows NT version 5.1 SP3

NT 5.0 is windows 2000 and Windows NT 5.1 is Windows XP... I hope yours was an innocent mistake and you are better informed when it comes providing a service to your clients than your comment suggest!

I installed the program with no problems using Setup. However it never asked me for the Activation Code. I then uninstalled it and reinstalled it in case I missed something. The second time around still no request for the Activation Code. Is there a way to find out if my copy is activated or do I have just the trial version?

Reply   |   Comment by Bruce Giles  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

Bruce Giles, Bruce Giles, if you have activated it, you don't need to activate it again, it will be activated automatically. If there is no a yellow activate button on the interface, you are using the full version.

I had AweClone version 2.0 installed and it worked fine.
After following instructions, including disabling McAfee anti-virus, uninstalling version 2.0 and running the setup as admin, I get no installation error messages but when the software starts it has Same error as comment #2 stating "Failed to open Hard disk or Partition".
Also, Comment #3 from Magoshare should include the statement the installation of this version, 2.6, requires the uninstall of the previous version, it also DOES require to be activated again by doing this.

Then reinstall AweClone, you'd better close anti-virus software on your computer, some anti-virus-software don't allow your computer to install a disk clone software.

Installed this program in december 2019 from another giveaway site and use it monthly to backup my system disk. The program offers disk cloning as well as partition cloning and works perfectly. Never had problems with antivirus or whatever. The interface is clean and easy, maybe missing some esoteric but in my case unneeded features. This program is a keeper, thanks Magoshare and GOTD.

Peter Blaise, although it was never needed, for security reasons I did it twice, and it worked perfectly. However, just for your information,as I "cloned" my system disk, I did not "restore" it, but just swapped the installed system disk with the cloned disk, and as expected the last one booted and worked without problems.

Thanks, [ Sean ], that's the most important detail about any 'backup' is proof we can use the backed up data - your testimony is useful and important.

"I was looking for a portable program for cloning HD"

Disk/partition image backup apps are basically the same as cloning apps -- the backup IS a clone, but written to an archive instead of a physical disk. Most all of these apps use a driver to make use of Windows VSS, so that they can copy files that are currently in use by Windows, and that makes them not portable. Many also install services. Many [most?] of these apps do let you create a bootable USB stick that includes a copy of the app, and in that regard Macrium Reflect [free or paid versions avail.] is the best. It does allow you to clone as well as backup/restore. Alternatively you can easily create a Windows To Go drive using the free Rufus, a Win10 ISO, and an SSD in a USB housing [USB sticks & conventional hard disks are too slow] -- about $20 & $5 on sale -- that lets you run a full version of your choice of backup or cloning software.

I recently tried out this software, it was not a good experience.

I installed it on a Win 10 PC, opened the software and clicked on ‘Activate’ as instructed and entered the activation code provided. I got a message that “Activation failed. Your license code has been used or the network is unconnect. Please contact us with support@magoshare.com”.

I tried shutting AweClone down and opening it again and get the same activation failed message. A restart might solve it, I didn’t do that because of the reasons outlined below and also because I had some work I need to finish.

During the install process there was a message that suggested I should shut my anti-virus down as that might cause issues, it didn’t specify that it was my particular anti-virus(F-Secure SAFE) that might be a problem, it seemed to be a general message. After installaton SpyShelter reported that AweClone wanted to control VoodooShield. I don’t see why AweClean needs either of those actions to be made for it to be registered. AweClone wanting two security products on my PC to be weakened raises big concerns with me.

Thanks for the offer but I have alternative software which does not need this done in order to work as required.

Other users have reported other software not working after AweClone was installed and it basically behaving in a mlaware-like manner.

It's caused by your Chrome browser, that is where that message is coming from. Chrome is screwing with the ability to download things, and blocking tons of stuff, all under the false pretense of "security". It's time to dump Chrome and move on.

Blackhat, Thank you, I Win8.1, because it's a lot easier to prevent the telemetry issue. When i start up in safe mode with internet, the internet connection fails - even when I tried another network via mobile hotspot with my iPhone 11. As you adwise, it seemend to be the most effective workaround. Unforunately it didn't work.

However I found an easy solution, when I told my firewall and my antivirus to allow the exe. As simple as that. Thanks a lot for being aware. Greets from Denmark
