Summary:

Let me share a story with you at the beginning:

I heard a friend's complaint once. He said that it took him a whole three hours sitting in front of a computer to copy one external hard drive to another external hard drive, for the purpose of keeping a backup. Do you know why three hours? He just use the "Ctrl C + Ctrl V" method! No wonder the process took so long a time.

The super fast SSD/HDD raw copy tool for disk copy, clone, upgrade, replacement or simply backup. It enables you to copy & clone one external hard drive to another external hard drive, no matter it is about cloning HDD to HDD, HDD to SSD or SSD to SSD.
