This may be an ignorant question, but sometimes I find that such questions are the best way to cure the problem Very Happy
I have a hard drive in my office computer which is showing signs if immanent demise. As a defensive measure, I want to buy and install a new HD. Would VV be the correct product to clone the original, so that when it finally crashes, I will have not lost everything? Will VV clone the OS software also?

ViceVersa is not a 'drive imaging software', so it does not create an exact replica of the entire drive (boot sector etc.). It does, however, create a replica of all your data files. If a new drive will be needed you will still need to reinstall Windows, but all your files will be saved. What is very valuable on your disk is your data files that no one can replace (doc, pictures, mp3, etc). Windows OS can be easily re-installed. The other advantage of ViceVersa is that it will replicate files in mirror folders so the backup files are easily accessible.
