Once the drive gets faulty, it becomes difficult to transfer the data to a new drive. Roadkil’s Raw Copy does not only copy the data from one hard drive to another, but can also transfer the exact data from one local drive to another, lets say to an external drive.
The program copies a disk as raw image from one drive directly to another, to make sure all data are copied successfully from the faulty drive. Roadkil is a trusted developer, we previously covered another tool from them called Unstoppable Copier which could recover the data from corrupt hard disk.
What makes Raw Copy different from Unstoppable Copier is the ability to copy the whole disk to another location as raw image. The usage requires nothing except selecting the source and target local drives / hard disks. When done, simply hit Copy.
According to the developer, the program has a built-in data recovery function which will attempt to recover data from bad sectors to ensure all the available data is restored from the drive. One huge benefit of this app is that it allow drives with unknown file system to be copied as well, including but not limited to Gaming Consoles, Mac, and Data Recorders.
It works on all versions of Windows, including the latest Windows 7.
