cloning software

Software that copies the entire hard disk to another hard disk or to another computer via direct cable or the network. Cloning is used to back up the computer for a future system restore and to provide interim storage for replacing the hard disk. It is also used to make a master copy of a computer configuration for quick installations on new machines. The cloned disk is copied verbatim (cloned again) to the new computer much quicker than installing the OS and applications individually. See image file, re-imaging, ghosting server and clone.
