Probably the best Prog ever - a question.
Before I start I have no wish to start a Mac v Windows thread - there is a question here.
Using a Mac there is an app called Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC) which you download for free.
What it does is copy your whole hard drive to an external one. So what? I hear you say - there are heaps of progs that do that - standard backup. True - however with CCC you can then choose to use that backup to boot your computer. It is like having two computers. Thus - if your hard drive fails - you just plug in the external and carry on as it has the OS on it not just your created files. Buy a new computer? Clone your old one to the hard drive and then clone it back to the new. No hours of file transfers.
My question - is there a Windows equivalent and what is it called (might need it soon). If not why not?
