A Word Of Caution Before We Get Started:
Checking Your System For Viruses, Malware and Spyware
No, I am not trying to sell you another Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware, or Anti-Spyware Product. I just wanted to mention briefly, the importance of checking your system prior to setting up your clone. When you clone your hard drive you will be getting an EXACT duplicate of your original hard drive, with its files, folders, applications and Operating System, therefore if there are any Viruses, Malware, or Spyware on that drive, it/they WILL get transferred to your clone as well. This is just a word of caution for you to inspect your system with whatever Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware, or Anti-Spyware product you already are using. If you have a freshly installed system you needn’t worry because it is a new system. If your system isn’t new just run an Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware, or Anti-Spyware CHECK prior to cloning and you should be good to go. My purpose and intent.
