Clone your hard drive if you worry about losing or damaging it

All storage drives deteriorate over time and become prone to failure. For traditional hard disk drives, this can happen in as few as four or five years. Free drive cloning utilities like Macrium and Clonezilla can create complete copies of an existing drive on a new disk. That means that you can usually insert the newly cloned drive into a PC and it’ll boot and work like it always did.
