Disk Imaging Utility. Hard Disk Image Backup.
Handy Backup / Features / Disk Image
Disk image is a snapshot of a hard disk, which is made through sector-based copying, without querying file system. This is the most complete approach to PC backup, as it allows backing up system with all drivers, applications, settings, documents, music and other information. To create an HDD snapshot, you need a special disk imaging software, such as Handy Backup.
Version 7.3.5, built on April 16, 2013
22.1 MB, 32-bit (above) or 28 MB, 64-bit version
While disk imaging can’t be used for “targeted” backup (since it is practically impossible to address HDD sectors occupied by specific files), it is perfect for creating snapshots of any individual partition, or HDD as a whole.
We’ve taken great efforts to make disk imaging with our software as easy as possible. All you need is a proper storage for the snapshot, which can be local media (e.g. secondary hard drive), network location (e.g. FTP), or other place.
Unlike most other disk imaging software, our utility also enables you to back up drive snapshots of networked workstations. For more information, please learn about Handy Backup Network Server.
Version 7.3.5, built on April 16, 2013. 22.1 MB, 32-bit (above) or 28 MB, 64-bit versionBackup Software from Novosoft LLC. 99 USD per license.
To create disk images, you need the Home Professional edition: it everything a contemporary image backup software should have.
Our software comes with a Disaster Recovery module designed to facilitate backup and recovery of disk images, through a bootable USB drive. If your main system crashes and you can’t even boot your computer, you’ll be able to boot the PC from a recovery drive and restore your hard disk data to a working state. For more information, please read about Disaster Recovery features...
Though disk imaging is usually considered more as run-once backup procedure, Handy Backup allows performing it automatically, on a scheduled basis. Convenient Task Wizard helps you to add hard drive image to backup set (in the same way how you back up files), and enable all related options, including verification, compression, encryption and other.
To learn more about using our image backup software, please see Image Backup in the User Manual.

Disk imaging is different from backing up common files, because it doesn’t exploit file system. Hard drive is a sector-addressable device, and HDD imaging is made through sector-based copying which gives to regard to separate files and folders. That’s why it is used to back up hard drive as a whole: even if you somehow determine particular sectors that correspond to these or that files in the file system, their backup may appear practically useless, because operating system constantly tries to optimize physical location of files on the drive (to provide applications with faster access to them), and by the time you need to restore the information, the sectors from which it was retrieved may be already occupied by different files. Our image backup software lets you protect your computer data easily and error free, even if you have only basic IT knowledge.
