Backing up your data with images has many advantages over straightforward file-to-foile backups.

For one they take up less space and two, they're often much easier to restore than conventional backups. A drive image Disk image file basically contains an exact copy of a hard drive, partition or logical disk and can be created on the fly. You can then restore these images at any time on a removal disk or to replace your corrupted, lost or damaged version. R-Drive Image does this fairly simply by creating a special bootable diskette to restore partitions. To restore only certain files, you only have to connect the image as a virtual disk (via a USB connection for example) and copy those files to their new location. For anyone that doesn't like Norton's drive image utility, this is a much easier to use and cheaper package. It's ideal for those that have suffered a major data loss Using R-Drive Image, you can completely and rapidly restore your system after heavy data loss caused by an operating system crash, virus attack or hardware failure. In addition, it's ideal for system administrators that need to setup large numbers of computers in one go.

A very powerful tool for administrators and those that want to be sure they don't waste valuable time if their operating system crashes.

Drive Image and Backup for Windows

R-Drive Image is a potent utility providing disk image files creation for backup or duplication purposes. A disk image file contains the exact, byte-by-byte copy of a hard drive, partition or logical disk and can be created with various compression levels on the fly without stopping Windows OS and therefore without interrupting your business. These drive image files can then be stored in a variety of places, including various removable media such as CD-R(W)/DVD, Iomega Zip or Jazz disks, etc. R-Drive Image restores the images on the original disks, on any other partitions or even on a hard drive's free space on the fly. To restore system and other locked partitions R-Drive Image is switched to the pseudo-graphic mode directly from Windows or bootable version created by the utility is launched from CD disc or diskettes.

Using R-Drive Image, you can completely and rapidly restore your system after heavy data loss caused by an operating system crash, virus attack or hardware failure. You can also use R-Drive Image for mass system deployment when you need to setup many identical computers. In other words, you can manually setup one system only, create an image of the system, and then deploy it on all other computers, saving your time and costs. If you need to restore only certain files from a disk image, you can connect that image as a virtual disk and copy those files directly from the disk image using Windows Explorer or any other file utility.
