    I'm in process of using it now. In this day of visual feedback, sometimes the non-feedback software can leave one a bit "what's going on? anything?" but apart from that, it is clean and works a treat. I'm using it atm just to do a simple clone of a disk I want to replace with a larger, newer one. Annnnnd... boots just fine... all good! I did appreciate that the target disk information included user-recognisable stuff: the second drive in the machine is identical to the newest one, and so all the drive parameter information was useless in allowing me to identify which one it was: however, the Drive Name was there, which prevented me from over-writing the other terrabyte drive. Would not have been good!
