Win32 Disk Imager is a software package which allows users to create a mirror image of the information contained within a removable storage device. This is often employed when important data needs to be backed up in the event of a system crash or if a USB device happens to be lost. There is no charge to install this software.
Main Functions and Uses
One aspect of Win32 Disk Imager that stands out is that it will create a replica of the removable storage device as opposed to its files alone. This is very useful in the event that the user is required to restore a system or perform a 'hard reset'. No information will be lost and the operating system can be returned to its original state. This program is portable and it can be run on any Windows-based computer.
Win32 Disk Imager provides the user with a progress bar as well as an estimation of how much time is remaining when a file is being copied. Thanks to a file size of only 12 megabytes, the performance of an operating system will normally not be affected. A unique algorithm also allows users to identify specific disk images if necessary.
