Iomega has developed virtual PC technology that enables users to run a copy of their PC on another machine.
The v.Clone software, which was developed by EMC, uses VMWare Player to create a virtual image of a user's PC on an external Iomega hard drive. The image can then be used on another PC. Once the user reconnects the Iomega drive to the main PC, the v.Clone software synchronises data changes.
Iomega says the product allows users to run their operating system, files, settings and applications on any available PC. It claims that no data is left behind on the secondary computer, so users' files are kept secure.
People wishing to use v.Clone require an Iomega hard drive. The software is available for download from Iomega. It will only run on Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7-based PCs.
