    Also I can;t stress how much of a life saver this app has been:

    In the past two and a half years all 3 drives it warned me were failing failed within a short time after… (ALL of which were Seagate! Avoid them like the Plague in my experience… 6 or more have died on me in the past decade, often after only a year or two…)

    Anyway drive DX is great, it has zero CPU footprint and will save you a lot of headaches…

    +! on Carbon Copy Cloner on the Mac side.

    If you aren’t afraid of a command line screen, I use Clonezilla regularly at the day job [tech director for a high school].

    We use it to create images of a prepped system [Mac, Win, Linux] and then prep multiple machines. I also use it to move a machine from one drive to a replacement one, and for bootable backups.

    Free.
    You burn to CD and boot from it [thumb drive also possible.

    As with most things in life, since it is free it doesn’t hold your hand as much as the commercial products, and there is no tech support [but a lively online commmunity.
