    I've had mixed results with this program.

    Attempt 1 was sucessful, was able to upgrade the HDD from
    80GB to 320GB. It backed up everything fine, copied it over
    and really made life a lot easier when dealing with lots of data.

    But, i never really just let one good instance be the basis for
    a whole review. So i tested it on an old XP laptop and it failed.
    Cloning a disk was OK, but restoring it failed and there was data loss!

    After this i put the program down. It's a mixed bag for me. But, my
    data is too important to me to allow for errors like this, especially
    when some data was missing from the cloned drive!

    I advise you to stay away from this if your personal data means
    anything to you. Luckily i always backup like a good PC user so
    this never phased me. But be careful. Have a good day.

    The First thing you should notice is that it is for the Windows XP Operating System.
    As this is almost the date of Windows 7 release and Vista has been in use for years be aware of this before buying.
    You must boot up from the CD meaning that in most PC's you need to interrupt the start sequence by pressing a Function key (usually F2 or F12) or delve into the System Setup (BIOS) and alter the boot sequence to enable the CD to read first.
    I found that it would not run on a Dell PC with XP at all giving a Disk I/O error message as it tried to analyse the system. All keys Abort, Retry, Ignore just put the CD into a loop starting again.
    A Sony Vaio running XP did work but the interface was very unfriendly leaving me unsure how to proceed and an external hard drive did not show at all.
    I was left not wanting to risk running the software and all attempts to eject the CD failed until I turned off the power and used a paperclip in the eject hole with power off.

    It's not Win 7 or Vista Compatible, so this program must be some years old and very much considerably out of date.

    Due to this, I was unable to do a proper test - I tried on a a test Win XP machine working perfectly and the software just sat and did nothing for 25 minutes.

    I read the other reviews at this point and was quite shocked, so proceeded no further.

    Quite honestly anything this bad is not safe for usage with ANY backup data as it defies the whole purpose of safety and security through data backup, ie It does not function.

    Avoid like the bubonic plague

    I ordered Disk Copy and Clean to copy my data from my PC's original 300GB hard drive to a 1TB upgrade - a long overdue move and this looked like the ideal software to do the job.

    I ran the program following the simple menus and all was well for about 30 minutes, after which there was no response. There was no progress bar so I tried to cancel the job, but it wouldn't. I ended up rebooting the system and trying again, this time allowing the program to run overnight and into the following evening which, I hoped, would be more than ample time to copy about 250GB. Again, I had no idea whether or not it was working - it just seemed to freeze and there was no way of knowing if it had actually done anything.

    Suspicious that nothing was actually happening, after running it for a third time from Sunday evening until this morning (Tuesday), I have closed the job and tried to boot from the new 1TB drive. It wouldn't. Having reinstalled my original 300GB drive and examined the supposed 'copy', I can see that only a very small amount of data has copied across. My experience might not be typical but it was consistent when tested three times on a reliable PC running XP.

    This is disappointing. Data is important and a data-loss could be catastrophic but, having tried three times, I feel I can't trust this software. I'm returning to my trusted copy of Acronis True Image Home 2010: Backup and Recovery (PC) which has been thoroughly tried and tested and I know this works.

    For anyone looking for software you can rely on to copy your data, then I wouldn't recommend 'Disk Copy and Clean' but would suggest buying a product such as Acronis or Norton Ghost instead whereby you can backup your old hard drive and restore it onto a new one - a slightly different process but a method which works.
