Clone your hard disk, even with data recovery from bad sectors, using Raw Copy

Raw Copy is a free program that will copy a disk as a raw image from one drive directly to another. It is designed for people who have a faulty drive and want to transfer the data directly to another drive without doing a file by file copy.

This sort of copy saves the need for operating system re-installs and allows drives with an unknown file system to be copied (including console game machines, data recorders, macs etc). Select a drive in the “Source” and “Target” drop down lists. A physical disk may contain multiple logical drives, therefore copying the physical disk may copy many logical drives in one go.

It is recommended unless you are an experienced user that you copy only logical drives to logical drives, and physical disks to physical disks. The selections in both of the drop downs must be different drives. Once you have made your selections hit the “Copy” button to begin. The “Read Errors” and “Write Errors” boxes will show any errors during the copying process.

The program has a built in data recovery function which will attempt to recover data from bad sectors.
