Look at the first review on the site that you indicate. It does not read too good.
I have used click here which is free, works amd I have found to be very good.

my next question is
Can you plug 2 HD's into one laptop? as i understand it there isn't much space in there.
if theres not enough space to plug them into my laptop can you plug them into a pc to do the job?

better off buying a external hard drive,then you can connect it up via usb and back up,also use it for backing up your desktop.

what i'm after is cloning my HD onto a bigger HD & putting the bigger one in my lappy cos mines a medion mim2120 & the HD is split into 3 parts 1-20GB & 2-10GB which i seem to be filling up rather quickly

you could put your new laptop hard drive in one of these,clone your current one across and then fit the new one.
You could then use your old one in the caddy for extra storage or back up
