Technology – UBDC v5.32

Today at work I am having to clone a partially defective Windows 7 hard drive to another in the hopes of getting the system back up and running.

So, in the past I have used Ultimate Bood CD for Windows but it has not been updated for Windows 7 or Windows 8, so I decided to give the OSS version of UBCD a shot.

I just downloaded the CD ISO file, burnt it to CD, and it appears to be working and able to access windows partitions and clone drives.

I will return after I have used the disk for a bit and update as to what I think about this latest edition.

UPDATE 2015.01.03

This version of UBCD worked great, I was able to clone the drive just fine, but in the end the damaged drive was in far worse shape than I thought, so the integrity of the damaged partition was such that the clone was unreadable.

Needless to say, I am impressed with this version, and linked to the website in my side column.

I will make followup posts as I gain more experience with this version, and I think I will once again keep up with this invaluable tool.

In my previous post about Dropbox, I said I would make comments about Dropbox.

I just wanted to say, so far I’m impressed how well it works, and it automatically uploads all my iPhone photos to a folder inside the Dropbox folder on my hard drive, and syncs them to the Dropbox cloud. That has got to be my most favorite feature so far.

I’ve always needed to backup all my photos, but never really found the time to setup a backup scheme… problem solved, I love it.

Now all I have to do is setup my wife with Dropbox, and get it to sync the photos from her phone, and share the two folders and we will be set in being able to get to each other’s photos.

If you are interested in signing up with Dropbox, please use this referral link and I will get a little extra space. Thanks 🙂
