What is a hard drive Clone?
A clone is an exact copy of the entire physical hard drive including all active and residual data and unallocated or slack space on the media. Special hardware and software is used to ensure that the original media remains unchanged. A cloned hard drive can be installed into the computer and the computer will re-boot and function as if the original drive was still installed. A clone is used so that the "best evidence," the original hard drive, is protected.
