SMARTCLONE™ TECHNOLOGY BRIEF

SmartClone is revolutionary technology built in to Casper, which enables the rapid updating of a backup hard disk.

How does SmartClone work?

Because there is no need to re-clone data that remains unchanged, SmartClone rapidly determines which differential updates need to be made to the destination hard disk, and then uses this information to safely eliminate the redundant transfer of data during the cloning process. The result is a dramatic reduction in the time required to re-clone an entire disk.

Understanding the SmartClone Process

The following figure shows the result of a normal clone. For example, when Casper clones a disk for the first time with SmartClone, all data is transferred from the source hard disk to the destination hard disk.

After a disk has been cloned for the first time, the SmartClone technology identifies and maps out all of the changed areas on both the source and destination hard disks. Using this map, SmartClone then updates only those areas of the destination hard disk necessary to reflect the current state of the source hard disk.

As shown in the figure above, new data that has been added to the source hard disk during normal use has been cloned to the destination hard disk. Data removed from the source hard disk during normal use has been removed from the destination hard disk. No other data has been touched, dramatically reducing cloning time.

How does SmartClone benefit you?

By eliminating the redundant transfer of data during the cloning process, Casper's SmartClone technology enables you to update and maintain a complete, fully bootable replacement for your Windows system hard disk in less time than ever before.
