COPYWIPE

Postby AlanD » Sun Sep 18, 2011 10:20 am

Looks like Terabyte is seeing to it that COPYWIPE goes the way of the
Dodo bird, where only skeletons remain.

Still some diehard users like DrTeeth and myself who will continue to
use it.

Cheers Doc

Best tool for the job - and so fast I thought I had really fecked
things up when I first used it. I did suggest to TBU that they take it
out of mothballs, un-freeware it, and make some shekels out of it.

Guys,

I like CopyWipe too but the Copy function in the other ver 2 TeraByte
products is even better. CopyWipe for DOS can't handle a "Scaled Size" copy
of a Win7 system. The new HD won't boot without a BCD Edit. I know you are
requesting an update to CopyWipe but I doubt that will happen as the other
products already have a good Copy function.

It was a while ago, but IIRC the disk booted without any fuss. In fact
I am still using the Win 7 32-bit partition which started life as an
AMD Athlon 64 x2 4800, now on Intel i7 860 P55 chipset. Have been
meaning to start using my 64 bit Win 7 partition for a while.

CopyWipe is also FAST.

Written under the influence of just under two pints of real ale (I
refuse to use SI units when talking about something as holy as
real-ale) and the 12 inch remix of Kelly Marie's Feels Like I'm In
Love.

DrT,

We are a metric country and we also order our beer in the old units. Middy,
schooner, pint.

I just compared an IFD copy with CopyWipe. The source HD contained Win7. IFD
copied the HD in 3:08 and CopyWipe took 5:29. So in my computer, CopyWipe is
slower.

What are the main differences between copying a HDD (as you've been discussing) and making an image of an HDD when it comes to restoring?

AlanD,

Why, did they announce anywhere that it's to be discontinued?

No such indications here.....

DrT, with that beat Disco, Disco (little reggae mix) and two pints, I
might be able to keep up. 12" huh? Into vinyl, like me?

The Seeker,

Image/restore is a two stage process and Copy is a one stage process. Copy isn't intended as a backup technique. It's mainly used when upgrading to a larger HD.
