Tired of wasting a lot of time and energy to reinstall your operating system when it occurred serious error again and again However, reinstall operating system is a complex and hard job for beginners. Want a simple and handy way to solve it Of course, a disk imaging tool is an ideal solution for you! Now I will introduce a popular and excellent disk imaging utility to you. That is DriveImage XML which came from Runtime Software. Read carefully, perhaps it is the right one that you are looking for.

DriveImage XML is an easy to use and reliable program for imaging and backing up partitions and logical drives. DriveImage XML enables us create a complete backup image of any logical drive or partition, allowing to restoring our entire operating system along with installed programs, user settings, registry and all. We can restore the image later to the same or a different drive, and also choose to copy the drive directly to another one. The program includes an image explorer that lets us open previously created backup images and extract individual files. DriveImage XML can use volume locking or Volume Shadow Services (VSS) to create the backup image from within Windows, without the need to reboot. The program stores our images in .dat files, using XML format, allowing us to process them with 3rd party applications. In addition, DriveImage XML is free for us and it does not contain any adware or spyware. It is standalone software and does not need any extra software and hardware requirement. It works with Win NT/2000/XP and its current version is 2.01.

The key functions and advantages of this imaging and backing up tool include:

1. With DriveImage XML, we don't need a complicated boot CD or expensive software to create a restorable system disk image for our PC. When our PC crashes and burns or just slows down over time, the best insurance we can have is a mirror image of our operating system, complete with drivers, user settings, software applications, and documents in one place.

2. DriveImage XML runs under Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Vista only. The program will backup, image and restore drives formatted with FAT 12, 16, 32 and NTFS.

3. Two versions of DriveImage XML are available: Private Edition: Private home users are allowed to use the Private Edition of DriveImage XML without charge. We are allowed to install DriveImage XML on our home PC. We must not use DriveImage XML commercially. No support is provided for the Private Edition. Commercial Edition: If we are a business or organization or use DriveImage XML commercially, we need to purchase the Commercial Edition. The Commercial Edition is available with 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100-user licenses.

4. In "Raw mode", DriveImage XML makes a sector by sector copy of our drive, including unused space. This means our image file will be the same exact size of the drive, and it can only be restored to a drive of that same exact size. For most home use situations, leave this box unchecked.

5. If we plan to burn our disk image to CDs or DVDs, select "Split large files," which will break our image file down into smaller chunks. This way we can easily save them to smaller-sized disks later on. If "Split large files" is NOT checked, we'll get one giant image file, either as large as the disk itself or as large as the used space on the disk (depending on whether "Raw mode" is enabled.)

6. If space on our destination drive is at a premium, select the "Compressed" option to make our image file up to 40% smaller than in normal mode. Compression will slow down the imaging process, but it will help save on disk space.

7. The hot part of DriveImage XML is that it can image our drive while we work - but that means that files we're using while it does its thing have to be locked to be copied correctly.

8. Once we've saved a system image, we can use it in three ways: to restore individual files from their saved state; to restore our PC back to the exact state it was when we saved the image, or to make an exact copy of the drive to another partition or hard drive.

9. We can also copy an entire existing partition to another blank partition without making an image at all, using DriveImage XML's Drive to Drive feature. Finally, we can schedule regular disk image operations using Windows Task Scheduler and Dix command line options. For more on that, in DriveImage XML's Help file, under the Feature folder, see "Task Scheduler."

10. Also, DriveImage XML's image files aren't browse-able using Windows Explorer, the way Mac users can explore Time Machine's backups using the Finder. However, the developers say that DriveImage XML is not necessarily required to restore files from the images it creates. The .XML file is not proprietary and readable by any program out to do so, and the image file itself is just all our files squashed into one big .DAT file. The .XML file acts as a map to the .DAT file, and if DiX wasn't around, in theory other programs would be able to grok it pretty easily. Which is nice, but still not as transparent as Time Machine's backup files.

With all these features, simple interface, excellent usability and free trial - why are you still reading Download the free trial now and experience what powerful and effective it is at once! If you feel this utility is helpful indeed, introduce it to your friends please!
