Looking for programs/software will clone or copy my system drive...?

Looking for programs/software will clone or copy my system drive for immediate recovery on separate hard drive?


Hello. I have a question. What is the best software or even the best means for me to make a real time copy or clone of my system hard drive on a separate physical disk to record up-to-the-minute system changes in the event one that my hard drives fail I would then boot into the other system drive on the good physical hard drive and without much effort be back up and running? NOTE: All my installed programs, folder files, files, settings, and configurations would be identical to the hard drive that has the separate system partition that just failed? No loss of work or data. I know I ‘may’ lose the work if not saved at that 'precise moment' the failure occurred, but any work that was saved seconds before the failure would still be on the copy or cloned separate system separate drive or separate system separate drive’s partition.

Paid or free program/software is no issue. I have Windows 7 Professional.

Any ideas as to programs/software you can suggest or a means I am not aware of?

Please reply.

Thank you!

Sounds like what you want is Disk Mirroring. You can clone to say, and internal drive in a docking station. But it would only be as current as the last time you ran the cloning program. Disk Mirroring is real time. I don't have any experience with it. But if you ask for experiences with disk mirroring systems on PCs you should be able to refine your requirements or at least have a better idea where to look.
