Hard Disk Image Backup
Hard drive image backup is a complete snapshot of “physical” HDD contents, i.e. a disk copy based on sectors, rather than on separate files. It includes data that can’t be copied with ordinary files-based system queries, and provides the most complete and accurate backup of a hard disk. To create an image backup, you need a disk imaging software, such as Handy Backup.

Fast System Restoration
Unlike files-based backup which requires you to reinstall operating system and all applications manually, hard drive imaging technology delivers higher results, and terrifically reduces time and efforts required for restoration.
