Roman send me an email yesterday reminding me that I never covered Easeus Disk Copy at Ghacks. He used the disk copy software in combination with gParted to move his operating system and files from his old hard drive to a bigger one.
EASEUS Disk Copy is an excellent disk copy software for all operating systems that can be used to copy data from one hard drive to another drive of the same or a bigger size. One of the main uses for this software is therefor to copy all data from one hard drive to a bigger one. The disk copy software will copy all data which essentially means that running Easeus Disk Copy to copy the data of an 80 Gigabyte hard drive to a bigger hard drive will copy 80 Gigabytes of data to the new hard drive (a sector to sector copy so to speak).
This obviously includes deleted files which makes the disk copy software an excellent tool for hard disk recovery as well. The data could be copied to a spare hard drive and analysed on that hard drive without having to tamper with the original hard drive.
EASEUS Disk Copy is supplied as an ISO image which has to be burned to disk. The computer has to be booted from the CD drive to run the disk copy software. The software can also be used to copy data from one partition to another.
The process of copying on disk or partition to another is straightforward and fast. It usually involves selecting the copy mode and picking the source and destination drives or partitions. The disk copy software supports hard disks of up to one Terabyte.Advertisement
