Hi does anyone know where I'd find the disk wizard program for Western Digital drives ?

 

I used to have it (and lost it) and the new one doesn't work with XP.

 

 

 

Thanks.

Thanks Athonlite - but what was that ? !   I ran Setup and nothing was launched. Then found a WD Diagnostics program but that won't clone my boot drive to a slave drive.  That's my goal and the "disk wizard" programs will, or did. 

 

I had the Seagate one working by adding a Seagate HDD but it wouldn't  complete (error: The seagate native diskwizard application is not found). 

 

Looking for something else is a bit of a minefield... but perhaps something is recommended (if WD Diskwizard can't be found)

Ah sorry I just thought you were looking for an older version of disk wizard which is what I put up a link to you didn't say how old or what you wanted it to to do I just assumed it was to run tests on a drive not clone a drive..... Macrium Reflect is what I used to clone my raid0 array from HDD to SSD
