Winclone earned MacWorld Magazine’s Gem of the Year Award in 2013, stating “if you use OS X’s Boot Camp feature for running Windows on your Mac, you need Winclone.” Winclone saves a disk image of your Mac’s Boot Camp partition for easy backup in the event of disk failure or virus infection. Restoring Boot Camp to full working order is as easy as restoring a Winclone image.
The Winclone Backup utility included in every edition of Winclone automatically saves your Windows User folder every day, making sure your Boot Camp backups are always current. For migrating Windows or upgrading to a new Mac, Winclone Standard is a must-have app. Winclone is flexible, making it easy to migrate Boot Camp no matter how you do it.
