Great tool to have. Review by G-Wolf

This tool showed me that Apricorn still has a great product for cloning hard drives. This thing works great and I have used it three times in one week with no problems. I highly recommend this product to anyone that has a hard drive that's too small for their current laptop PC or if their hard drive is starting to act up and they want to upgrade. (Posted on 5/30/13)

Pretty much plug n play. Worked great. I used it to pull data off of a hard drive from a laptop that gave out on me. (Posted on 4/12/13)

This is a great product! I was skeptical as I found it on a shelf in the BestBuy store. This thing worked exactly as it says. Cloned an entire SSD to a HDD. Took 10 minutes. Very pleased. (Posted on 2/13/13)
Works as advertised Review by Bill

You don't have to be nervous about upgrading your hard drive anymore. While there may be cheaper solutions, this is one of the easiest. I have only a USB 2.0 but with 3.0 it could be used as a legitimate everyday 2nd drive also. (Posted on 11/22/11)

Overall Windows support for large sector media
This table documents the official Microsoft support policy for various media and their resulting reported sector sizes. See this KB article for details.
NOTES: While not stressed in the preceding table, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Server 2003 R2 do not support 512e or 4Kn media. While the system may boot up and be able to operate minimally, there may be unknown scenarios of functionality issues, data loss, or sub-optimal performance. Thus, Microsoft strongly cautions against using 512e media with Windows XP or other products based on the Windows XP codebase (such as Windows Home Server 1.0, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows XP 64-bit Edition, Windows XP Embedded, Windows Small Business Server 2003, and Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2).
