This product claims to be able to clone your hard drive so I presumed it would be just the tool to use before I installed a new drive in my laptop. Sadly it wasn't. The whole 'back up' process took just shy of seven hours and completed without a hitch. When I tried to load the image to my new hard drive, problems were encountered. It just wasn't going to happen. My Windows Vista installation was deemed 'non-genuine' even though I have the product code and that was as far as I got.
