Create a Disk Image
A Disk Image is a mirror of the contents of a logical drive that is stored in a single file. It can be useful to back up the contents of an entire drive, in order to be able to work with it later.

File systems FAT16 and FAT32 do not support file sizes larger than 2GB and 4GB respectively. In these file systems is not possible to create a disk image file for a drive as it is likely to grow larger than 2GB (or 4GB). The solution in this case is to use a target location formatted under the operating system Windows NT/2000/XP and NTFS or create Disk Image splitted in chunks by appropriate size.
