as last preview i'd like to add a feature on the cloner that i haven't found on any other tool, the option to mount the drive in windows (in read only) preventing windows to access it (without bothering of masking first sectors to hide partitions to win) but selecting head map and skip surfaces while extracting with any software (like Rstudio, winhex...) this way you can chose the SW you like but skip defective heads!

1 head was skipped, winhex will receive the pattern (you can edit it) for unread sectors without receiving errors

windows will always detect the drive as unpartitioned and readonly.
