|To duplicate a drive with the Kanguru Mini Clone, simply remove the hard drive from your computer, stick it in the Mini Clone with the 500GB drive and you're good to go. |
You will be able to copy all the data from your 160GB HDD to a 500GB drive but the Mini Clone won't resize automatically, so you would end up with a 160GB partition and 340GB of unallocated space on the 500GB drive. You could format the unallocated space which would result in two partitions on the one hard drive, or you can resize the 160GB partition to 500GB post-duplication with a freeware program like Partition Wizard
One important thing to check is that your hard drive uses a SATA interface. The Mini Clone supports SATA, USB2 and eSATA but does not natively support IDE.
The Mini Clone is very convenient for disk duplications. I've been using mine for the past 2 years to do backups and upgrades. I like the Mini Clone because it works much faster than the external USB2.0 hard drive that I used to do my backups and disk imaging on.
