R-Drive Image 6.3 Build 6304 BootCD is a great tool for creating disk image files and backing up data. A disk image file containing a “byte to byte” copy of a hard disk, partition or logical disk can be created without restarting the computer and with different levels of data compression. The created disc image can be stored on various types of media, including removable media such as CD-R (W) / DVD, Iomega Zip and Jazz discs.
- Simple and convenient user interface – no in-depth knowledge of computer control is needed.
- Perform operations quickly: Disk image is created without the need to stop and restart the Windows operating system. In the process of creating an image and to completion, all other writing operations are cached. Image recovery is also done quickly except for the system partition. When restoring a system partition, you must restart the program in pseudo-graphical mode directly from Windows or use a boot disk that was previously created (CD / DVD or diskette).
- Compress image files. To save disk space, image files can be compressed.
- Support for removable media devices. Image files can be saved to removable media devices such as CD-R (W) / DVD, Iomega Zip and Jazz discs.
- Support for Microsoft networks. Bootable R-Drive Image CD / DVD version supports storing disk images to remote computers and returning them from the remote computer to local computers on the Microsoft network (CIFS protocol).
- Pseudographic mode. Reboot to pseudo-graphic mode, to restore to another locked system or partition done directly from Windows. No need to use a bootable CD / DVD.
- A complete list of supported devices. Large list of computer hardware components supported by the program.
- USB 2.0 is supported in pseudographic mode. While the cost of removable hard drives continues to decline, removable USB 2.0 drives (flash drives) are perhaps the most optimal and reliable solution for backing up systems and other partitions on laptop computers. Unreliable CD / DVDs and slow CD / DVD burners are no longer needed.
- Bootable version. A special bootable disk (two floppy disks or one CD / DVD) is created for recovery to the system partition.
- Restore individual files and folders. Disk images can be mounted as read-only virtual disks, and their contents can be viewed and copied.
- Share image files. Disk image files can be divided into several files if there is not enough space to store them in one media.
- Disk image protection. Image files can be password protected and contain additional comments.
- File system conversion. The file system of the recovered drive can be converted (for example, FAT16 to FAT32 and vice versa).
- Making a new part. Disk image data can be recovered to free disk space. The size of the recovered partition can be changed.
- Change partition. Disk image data can be returned to an existing partition. the program can delete existing partitions and restore disk images to free space.
- Copy Drive to Disk. The entire disk can be copied to another, the same or greater capacity.
- Check the picture made. Disc image files can be verified before being saved and / or restored.
- Schedule. The task of creating a disk image can be installed and performed at a certain time in automatic mode.
