What comes from the manufacturer?

Maxtor/Seagate, Western Digital, and many others have software designed to clone the hard drive available for free either in the box or on their website, provided at least one of the drives is made by them. That is by far the cheapest and easiest option, so see what the manufacturer offers before delving into third-party software.
