Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't live without it Fortunately I do not have to use this as often as I once did but for those times when you are in a crunch and a user has screwed up their machine but has no backup then this is a life saver. Only once did I try to use it and was not successful but that was because the user fried the hard drive. I will never be without this handy little guy. I wouldn't feel right. It is so easy to use and so wonderful. Thanks so much for this product. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use It At Work All The Time Handy when you need to recover some data for a user, from a hard drive that has already been removed from the device due to End of Life Cycle, repair, etc. Has many applications for use. I definitely keep this little life-saver in my bag. Product manuals (included version and online version) have conflicting information in reference to the "Backup Software". The manual that shipped with the adapter refers to PC-Clone EX Lite Backup Software and the online product support manual refers to J-Micron Backup Utility. Also, both manuals state that if you don't have the CD that comes with the adapter, or don't have an optical drive, you can download the "Backup Software" at I have yet to find any supporting software available for download. I'm in the no optical drive camp on this one. Point me to the software I can download and I will be more than happy to touch that 5th star.
