How to Use a Dynamic Root Disk for Disaster Recovery

Dynamic Root Disk is a great software program that allows you to restore your hard disk, especially when it stops responding to your requests completely. The program uses clone images to restore your disk to a previous date when you created a complete backup of all your data.

The software is free to use and can be really useful for disaster recovery. You just have to create a backup clone image for your data and use it later when your hard disk crashes.

You can easily recover your data using the Dynamic Root Disk, provided that you know the right process.
