Disk Image

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. Before starting recovery of deleted files, it might be a good idea to create a Disk Image, if you have enough space. If something goes wrong while recovering files, the original deleted file state will be preserved in the Disk Image.

Follow these steps to create a Disk Image:

  1. In the Active@ UNDELETE main screen, select a drive as an image source.
  2. Click the Create Disk Image button on the toolbar or right-click the selected drive, and click the Create Disk Image command on the context menu.
  3. Select the Disk Image location in the File Save dialog and click Save.
  4. Watch the creation progress and wait while drive's contents are copied to the new location. You can cancel the process of image creation if necessary anytime by clicking Cancel.
The Target Location for the Create Disk Image command must always be specified on other drive.
