Hard Disk Image Backup
Backup Software / Features / 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.
Version 7.8.0, built on 13 May, 2016
HDD image backup is created through low-level disk copying which gives no regard to the file system and allows you to backup operating system, boot records, applications, etc. This is an all-in-one backup of your PC data!
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.
Disk imaging software can be effectively used for hard drive cloning purposes. For example, restoring one image backup to several computers can be used to set up multiple identical systems. To learn more, read how to clone hard drive.
Version 7.8.0, built on 13 May, 2016 . 58.1 MB Backup Software from Novosoft LLC. 99 USD per license.
To create HDD image backup, or take advantage of hard disk cloning, you need Handy Backup Professional edition, or higher.
Handy Backup delivers a fast and easy image backup of the entire hard drive, or any chosen partition, and supports all types of local and external HDDs (including USB and FireWire drives).
Since disk-based approach to backups provides the most effective data protection against operating system crashes, hardware failures, and other disasters, it is highly recommended for both home and business environments.
Users of Handy Backup Server Network are also allowed to create disk images of remote workstations, on a client-server scheme. Learn more about Handy Backup Server Network.
