Image for Windows: A Reliable Backup And Restore Utility

O. James Samson - March 28, 2007

1031862520-1.jpgImage for Windows is a backup and restore utility that creates a snapshot of an entire partition or volume to a set of files or directly to most DVD+RW or CD-R/RW drives. If something should ever happen to that partition or volume, you’ll be able to simply restore the snapshot image.

The program uses the technology available in the free PHYLock™ add-on utility. PHYLock™ allows you to continue using your computer while the backup is locked to a point-in-time. This eliminates the inconsistencies typically experienced while backing up a partition that is in use.

Here are a couple of the features that make this software a must have and a better option than most in its category:

  • Total reliability – Provides the option to verify each and every byte it backs up
  • Convenience – Runs directly from Windows and when used with the free PHYLock™ add-on, it can create a true image of the Windows partition itself, without requiring a reboot
  • Maximum compression – By default, maximum compression is applied to the drive images you create
  • Maximum speed – If backup speed is paramount, you can bypass compression entirely
  • Optical drive support – You can save directly to a CD or DVD disc
  • Cost effectiveness – Includes Image for DOS and Linux at no additional charge, making it a uniquely affordable and complete disk imaging solution
  • Flexibility – Restore partitions, regardless of the file system on the partition being restored. This gives you the power to restore NTFS partitions from Windows 98 or even DOS (as just a couple examples)
  • Network support – Save backups to any drive accessible to Windows itself
  • Image file validation – Allows you to check the integrity of the disk image files, either as part of the backup process, or at any time thereafter
  • Selectable image file sizes – If desired, you can specify a maximum size for the disk image files that are created (to a maximum of 2,047 MB). This allows you to create image files that readily fit on the removable media of your choice

And so much more.
