Home  Previous  Next

R-Drive Image OEM kit allows system integrators, consultants, and computer assemblers to create special system recovery disks/devices and include them with their fully assembled computer systems. The license for R-Drive Image OEM kit allows its licensee to distribute unlimited number of those system recovery devices with its computers provided that a an unregistered copy of R-Drive Image OEM is pre-installed on each distributed computer and the R-Drive Image software icon is placed on the end-user desktop.

The end user of such computer systems can use those system recovery disks to restore the system files, registry keys, installed programs, etc., to a state the computer system or hardware was initially set up (a fresh setup).

R-Drive Image OEM kit is intended only to restore the original system disk configuration as part of a service or maintenance procedure. Use of this kit to install software on any other computer or system is strictly prohibited.

R-Drive Image OEM kit consists of three components:

R-Drive Image System Recovery Media Creator (R-Drive Image SRMC)

It can create a special R-Drive Image System Recovery OEM media device, that is, startup disk(s) that may be used to restore a computer system after a complete failure when it requires a complete fresh setup (system recovery disks). It may be a CD/DVD/USB disk, ZIP drive or any other removable media device.

R-Drive Image System Recovery OEM

Actually, R-Drive Image System Recovery OEM is a startup device containing a special R-Drive Image startup version with a master disk image. This R-Drive Image startup version restores data from a master image only to a hard drive or logical disk of a target system.

R-Drive Image OEM

This is a R-Drive Image version similar in its functionality to a conventional R-Drive Image.


Note: You need to obtain an OEM license to activate the OEM functionality in R-Drive Image. You may obtain a free demo key on the R-Drive Image site to test that functionality. OEM System Recovery Media created in the demo mode will perform all the required operations but without actual data recovery. If you want to disable the OEM functionality after tests, simply enter that free demo key once again. The the OEM functionality will disappear.


When you enter the OEM registration key, a new item will appear on the Action Selection Panel.

R-Drive Image SRMC Features:

The master image can be placed on the startup disk(s) or on a separate device.

Flexible data restoring: R-Drive Image may automatically find the disk to restore data to, or the user can manually select places for data recovery.

Creating OEM System Recovery Media consists of two steps:

1.Creating the master image of the system

2.Creating the startup media

When the user will start the system up with such disk(s), R-Drive Image will either restore the system automatically, or ask the user to specify the source and target for system requirement, depending on the options specified during the disk creation.
