We really do love hearing from our happy customers, especially when our software has been able to swoop in and save the day! Tom was no exception and he has a great story to tell:
I just thought you should know what an excellent experience I had with your software this afternoon. It’s a classic tale of one geek’s quest for SSD speeds in his Ivy Bridge laptop, which I’m sure you can relate to.
My 850 EVO arrived this morning and – as this was the first time I had cloned a HDD – I turned to the internet for guidance, none of flatmates being too keen on acronyms. My first port of call was a leading provider of backup solutions, which was recommended by a reputable techtuber. It was with dismay however that I downloaded the free trial only to find that it did not offer the only feature I wanted – disk cloning. Muttering pagan cursewords under my breath, I uninstalled the shamware and returned to the great database in the sky, this time taking to that bastion of PC knowledge, r/pcmasterrace.
I was pointed to a free cloning program, which had apparently worked wonders for one redditor on multiple occasions. Excited to finally solve my problem (and with free software, no less) I clicked the “download” button with uncharacteristic gusto.
Source and target locked in.
Progress bars, reflected in my glasses, blossomed into green like a periodot sunrise.
In a storm of SATA cables I freed my new drive from the confines of my desktop, wrestling it into my laptop chassis.
Screws tightened, I opened the laptop lid and reached, trembling, for the power button.
Your computer needs to be repaired.
Critical components could not be found
In despair, I once again prepared my weary drives for the data transfusion. How much longer could this go on for? I offered the usual prayer to the great DIY god: “It was only supposed to be a five minute job!”
Though I did not yet know it, in another thread, in another time, someone had penned the words that would answer my prayers.
Those words were “Macrium Reflect.”
I would seriously like to congratulate you on your setup. When I go looking for a disk cloning utility, I don’t want to shell out £50+ on trust for a product that might not work, but nor do I want to install useless freeware on my system which can’t do the job and has virtually no customer support.
In your case I downloaded the trial, gave it a go, saw that it works and was immediately sold. I bought my license less than an hour ago.
I hope in some way this message has brightened your day, as your work has brightened mine.
Thank you Tom, it has indeed!
