DiscWizard makes adding a new hard drive much easier. It can be used in several different ways. For example, you can use it to copy all the data from an old drive to the new one. The new drive will have the operating system, and will be bootable. DiscWizard can also partition and format a new drive for additional storage.
We have updated DiscWizard to better fit the needs of today’s technology (improved USB support, improved support for diagnostic partitions, and Windows Vista/Windows 7 support).
Seagate DiscWizard is developed by the well-known Acronis and has many features of Acronis True Image software. DiscWizard has recently been updated to version 13.0 with new features, improvements and new user interface.
DiscWizard can backup your entire hard disk drive, including your operating system and applications. You can also use the software to clone a partition and migrate to a new hard disk drive.
It includes all essential features and tools that you need to backup, restore, and recover your data. The software also lets you create a disaster recovery media, which can be used when the operating system fails to boot.
DriveCleanser lets you permanently and securely delete all data on partitions, a useful feature if you are giving away your computer to an unknown person.
