R-Drive Image is a utility for backing up data and creating full images of selected partitions or the entire hard disk. The finished image can be written to a USB-drive or a CD / DVD-disk, which makes it possible to restore the system if necessary.
R-Drive Image is a powerful and effective tool for creating hard disk images and backing up important data. Using disk image files is very convenient, because they contain an exact copy of the hard disk or logical drive partition. To create such images does not require restarting your computer, and the compression level is under your complete control. The created disk image can be saved on a variety of storage media: USB flash drives, CD / DVDs, Iomega Zip and Jazz.
If your disk has some kind of failure or loss of important information, then this program will help you quickly restore all the data from the image to the original disk, another partition, free unformatted space, etc. - as you wish. To restore a system or locked partition, the program can switch to the so-called pseudo-graphic mode directly from Windows, or else the boot version of the application can be started from a CD / DVD or a set of diskettes. Using R-Drive Image, you will completely restore the system after total data loss caused by a system crash, virus attack or computer hardware crash.
Also, this tool is used for mass cloning of the system in cases when it is necessary to install one already configured system on several identical computers. In other words, you only need to manually configure the OS once, then create its image, and then unpack the image on other computers, saving time and money.
If you need to restore only individual files, the disk image can be attached as a virtual disk, the data from which is directly copied using Windows Explorer or other file utilities.
Thus, R-Drive Image is one of the best backup and restore utilities to prevent their catastrophic loss after failures of the operating system or hardware.
