Overview of EaseUS Disk Copy

Disk clone is not only for disk backup/upgrade but also for data recovery sometimes. There are two kinds of data on hard disk, one is system-readable, which means you can see them in a partition and do any operation on them, like modifying, deleting or hiding. The other is recoverable data, which means the data that have been deleted or formatted maybe by mistake or virus affection, etc.

The normal disk/partition clone software usually just clones system-readable data. This can only be used for common backup. However, EaseUS Disk Copy Pro can clone exactly all sort of data on the disk, including system-readable data and recoverable data. The sector by sector copy makes the cloned disk completely intact. That means you will never lose any data even the system neglected.

Step 1. To start copying/cloning an entire disk to another, choose this disk as the source disk under "Disk Mode" and click "Next".
