Intelligent sector copyCopy only file system sectors/clusters that are in use. This reduces the time to create the clone as unused file system clusters are not copied.
Verify File System

Verifying the file system prior to cloning ensures that there are no file system errors transferred to the clone.

Please note that this may take several minutes to complete
Rapid Delta Clone

Copy only file system differences between the clone source and target. This increases cloning speed dramatically.

 Show more information on RDC...

As with Rapid Delta Restore (RDR) the concept of RDR has been something that has been thought about for quite some time here at Macrium Software. We wanted to build a clone solution that would effectively and rapidly copy only the differences between the source and target file systems. The advantage of this is obvious, RDC offers similar a performance increase as an Incremental disk image offers over a Full image and enables regular clones to be a viable and fast DR solution.

How does it work?

The NTFS file system resident on the clone source is compared with file system on the target disk. The two file systems are first verified that they originated from the same format command and then the target NTFS file system structures are analyzed for differences. All the NTFS file system structures are copied to the target disk and any that do not exist or have been modified on the target disk cause the data records for each NTFS file or object to be copied as well. The result is an 'Incremental' clone applying only file system changes detected between the source and the target.

Note: RDC works with NTFS file systems only. All other file systems will perform a full clone 
Note: RDC is not available when shrinking partitions during a clone.


Enable SSD TRIM on the clone target to optimize the disk.

This features provides automated SSD optimization resulting enhanced SSD performance and longevity. Writing to an unused block is much quicker than an in-use block as it avoids both the slow erase operation and the read-modify-write cycle. This results an increase of both the lifetime and the performance of the device. It is effective for all windows operating systems, even those that support SSD trim natively as the file system driver can only TRIM blocks on de-allocation; it cannot TRIM blocks written by another process. It is also effective for USB attached SSDs.

Forensic Sector Copy

Copy every sector from the source to the target disk partition.

Please note tat this option is only necessary if you want to copy unused file system space and will significantly increase the time to complete the clone.
