Portable R-Drive Image Technician 7.1.7110 Multilingual + BootCD
R-Drive Image Portable is a potent utility providing disk image files creation for backup or duplication purposes. A disk image file contains the exact, byte-by-byte copy of a hard drive, partition or logical disk and can be created with various compression levels on the fly without stopping Windows OS and therefore without interrupting your business. These drive image files can then be stored in a variety of places, including various removable media such as CD-R(W)/DVD, Iomega Zip or Jazz disks, etc.
R-Drive Image restores the images on the original disks, on any other partitions or even on a hard drive’s free space on the fly. To restore system and other locked partitions R-Drive Image is switched to the pseudo-graphic mode directly from Windows or bootable version created by the utility is launched from CD disc or diskettes.
Using R-Drive Image, you can completely and rapidly restore your system after heavy data loss caused by an operating system crash, virus attack or hardware failure. You can also use R-Drive Image for mass system deployment when you need to setup many identical computers. In other words, you can manually setup one system only, create an image of the system, and then deploy it on all other computers, saving your time and costs. If you need to restore only certain files from a disk image, you can connect that image as a virtual disk and copy those files directly from the disk image using Windows Explorer or any other file utility.
R-Drive Image is one of the best backup and disaster recovery solutions to prevent losing your data after a fatal system failure.
R-Drive Image Portable Features:
- Simple and convenient user interface – no in-depth knowledge of computer management is required.
- On-the-fly operations: Disk images are created without the need to stop and restart the Windows operating system.
- Image file compression. Image files can be compressed to save disk space.
- Support for removable media devices. Image files can be saved to removable media devices such as CD-R(W)/DVD, Iomega Zip and Jazz discs.
- Support for Microsoft networks. The bootable R-Drive Image CD/DVD version supports saving a disk image on a remote computer and restoring it from a remote computer to a local computer in Microsoft networks (CIFS protocol).
- pseudographic mode. Reboot to pseudo-graphical mode, to restore to the system or any other locked partition is carried out directly from Windows. There is no need to use a bootable CD/DVD.
- Extended list of supported devices. A large list of computer hardware components supported by the program.
- USB 2.0 are supported in pseudo-graphics mode. While the cost of hard drives and removable drives is constantly decreasing, a removable USB 2.0 drive (flash drive) can be the most optimal and reliable solution for backing up system and other partitions in portable computers. No more need for unreliable CD/DVD and slow CD/DVD burners.
- Boot version. Special boot disks (two floppy disks or one CD/DVD) are created to restore to the system partition.
- Recovery of individual files and folders. The disk image can be mounted as a read-only virtual disk and its content can be viewed and copied.
- Splitting the image file. A disk image file can be divided into several files if there is not enough space to store it on one medium.
- Disk image protection. The image file can be password protected and contain additional comments.
- File system conversion. The file system of the recovered disk can be converted (eg FAT16 to FAT32 and vice versa).
- Creation of new sections. Disk image data can be restored to free disk space. The size of the restored partition can be changed.
- Partition replacement. Disk image data can be restored to any existing partition. the program can delete the existing partition and restore the disk image to the freed space.
- Copying Disk to Disk. An entire disk can be copied to any other disk of the same or greater capacity.
- Checking the created image. The disk image file may be checked for correctness of its creation before it is saved and/or restored.
- Schedule. The task of creating a disk image can be installed and executed at a specific time in automatic mode.
- Creation of a script for frequent and automatic actions. The program interface allows you to create scripts to automatically create an image file and add data to an existing disk image file. Scripts are executed from the command line, and such a line can be included in any batch file.
- Notification of completed transactions. the program automatically creates and sends an email notification, and can also launch an external utility when the disk image is successfully created or the image creation operation is not completed
- Support for Windows Vista and 64-bit processors. The new version of R-Drive Image supports all Windows Vista operating systems and 64-bit processors.
- Speed up disk imaging and copying operations. Added asynchronous I/O, distributed compression library zlib and other features. As a result, image creation and disk copy operations increased by up to 200 percent.
- Differential imaging mode. In differential mode, when creating a disk backup, it compares the current data with the 128-bit cache of the original data without reading the master image. In any case, this speeds up the process of creating an image, but it also does not need to change the source discs when burning the image to CD / DVD.
- Incremental image creation mode. A new incremental image creation mode has been added.
- The boot module can be burned to CD/DVD along with the image. It became possible to use a bootable CD / DVD disk for system recovery.
- Support for creating a volume backup using the Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service.
- Support for Dynamic Disks and BSD slices. Allows you to backup dynamic disks and BSD parts, save them and restore them.
- Flexible control of writing to CD/DVD. Allows you to limit the write speed and cache the ISO file.
- Improved disk image file format.
- Writing to NTFS partitions. The CD/DVD version of R-Drive Image (developed on the Linux kernel) supports writing to NTFS partitions in the same way as the Windows version of R-Drive Image does.
What’s New in v7
- A new, completely redesigned wizard interface with improved graphical controls, drag and drop object manipulations, and visual source and target binding.
- A partition manager that allows the user to delete, wipe, create, and re-size partitions and logical disks.
- Image creation from individual files, not only from disk objects.
- Advanced and versatile logs accessible directly from the user interface.
- Advanced file filtering to make search for files and marking them easier. File filters can be created directly on a R-Drive Image panel or set/edited manually (Batch mode).
- Support for rotation schemes (a further development of backup sets). A rotation scheme is a set of files (usually a file for a full image of an object and a number of its incremental/differential backups) which R-Drive Image treats as one unit. Rotation schemes are used to flexibly control the parameters of complex backup tasks. R-Drive Image supports predefined and custom rotation schemes. Custom rotation schemes are available in the Corporate, Technician, and Commercial licenses.
- Support for the VMDK file type, a popular virtual machine disk format (only in Corporate, Technician, and Commercial Licenses).
