O&O DiskImage is a professional tool that helps you back up sensitive data by creating an image of your hard drive.
Making security backups of your computer is a slightly complex process, which is precisely why lots of people fail to do it properly. O&O DiskImage will take a virtual snapshot of your system and all the information on it. You can then use this snapshot to restore your data in case disaster ever strikes. Obviously, it's a good idea to store this file separately from your computer!
Disk imaging isn't complicated, but looks a little intimidating. O&O DiskImage makes the task as easy as possible by providing a start page that lists the basic tasks you might want to carry out, ample help files, and an info panel, with basic information on the task in hand. Even still, you'll probably have to refer to the help files the first few times you use the program.
Happily, O&O DiskImage has improved several of the features that weren't up to scratch the last time, most notably the encryption options for your image files. It is now possible to choose between three different modes, so you can relax in the knowledge that your data is safe.
O&O DiskImage allows you to carry out three basic tasks - imaging, incremental imaging and cloning. The differences between these options are well explained in the O&O DiskImage help files. When imaging, there are three modes - used sector, forensic and direct forensic - while the program will alert you if you haven't chosen the right mode for the job. Finally, O&O DiskImage allows you to burn the resulting .OMG files to disc so they are easily accessible to restore your system ¡f disaster strikes.
Don't be intimidated - O&O DiskImage is an imaging program worth getting to grips with.
