Interesting tool we just came across in the blogs. OSFClone touts itself to be a free drive cloning program (which is what companies that practice “safe hard drive recovery” use), which enables you to “see-all” that is on a drive. Basically, it looks to clone a raw image from your drive so that you can analyze it. It also boots itself, which of course lets you skip your OS and get straight to the nitty-gritty.
So probably not a program for “everybody”, frankly, but at least for those of us with geekier intentions. Worth a look, and a disk imaging program for FREE is certainly nothing to complain about. Especially if it works 😉
