— Copy specific partitions- Applexsoft Hard Drive allows users to copy specific disk partitions. This is ideal when the destination hard drive has a smaller size than the original hard drive (especially SSD) since you just need to copy the system drive to SSD if you want to use SSD as your new system disk.
— Copy files, programs and OS from: partition to partition, disk to disk or partition to disk. You even have an option to use a destination partition or destination disk whose size is smaller than the source disk; normally, you would use a source disk that is smaller than the destination disk.
— Perform the copy process in just one click-When the destination disk is not allocated, all you have to do is to follow the three-step partition/disk migration process. You can also copy sector by sector within the unallocated area. Even if some partitions are invisible, you can still copy them. Additionally, supports dual boot environment making it more user friendly.
— The software supports all common hard drive types including SSD drives, RAID, IDE, Serial ATA and SCSI drives. You can upgrade everything to new hard drive types like HDD and SSD with fast speed and with great ease. It supports all file formats including NTFS, Linux Ext2/ReiserFS/Ex3, Lunux Swap, FAT16 and FAT32. However, users cannot take advantage of the partition expansion offered by the software when using Lunux EX2/ReisderFS/Ex3 and LinuxSwap. You don’t need any special startup disks to start using the software as well. It also has an interface that is easy to use.
If you love the way files, folders and programs in your system disk work in harmony and are easy to access but feel frustrated by the hard drive size, you don’t need to get a new PC.

This AppleXsoft Hard Drive Copy software will definitely come in handy in some really desperate situations.
