R-Drive Image

Home  Next

R-Drive Image is unique and powerful drive image software. It creates drive image files on-the-fly, that is, without stopping Windows. Such images may be stored anywhere including various removable media. It compresses image data with variable compression level to save free space. It also restores such images on the disks on-the-fly, except system partitions. R-Drive Image creates special startup disk (a startup CD/DVD disc, USB removable storage device, or 6 floppy disks) to restore system partitions. It connects images as virtual disks to copy only certain files from the images. It also directly copies an entire disk to another - no time spent for file structure scanning.

System integrators and computer assemblers can use R-Drive Image OEM kit to create system recovery disks to include them with their fully assembled computer systems.

Note: The current version has a limited support for dynamic disks or other non-MBR/GPT partition layouts. See Support for Various Disk Partition Schemes and File Systems for details.
