What is an Image?
An Image is a “copy” of your drive or partition. This “copy” contains all information taken from the original. A special feature of an image is that the file format is especially compressed and takes up much less disk space than the original. The more often you create images of your drive, the less you need worry about data loss. Should data on the original drive be lost or damaged, you can restore your last image with all its data onto your computer. With just a few clicks of the mouse, you can recover the original status of your drive before the last imaging.
