An image is an exact, byte by byte, copy of any object on the Drives panel . When created, images can be processed like their original objects.

Images are very useful if there is a risk of total data loss due to hardware malfunction. If bad blocks are constantly appearing on a hard drive, you must immediately create an image of this drive.

While creating images, R-Linux can simultaneously perform disk scan and save scan information to lessen time necessary to process the disk.

All data search, scan and restoring can be done from this image.

To create an image ,

1 Select an object on the R-Linux 's Drives panel and click the Create Image button

Click to expand/collapse Other ways to create the image

2 Specify image options, a file name, and destination for the image on the Create Image dialog box

Note: To store an image file, you need a free space equal to at least the object size.
