Almost everyone who has ever used a computer knows what it is like to lose data. It is, after all, a common problem that is bound to happen sooner or later. Hard drives, as well as any other data-bearing device, can fail without notice. This is particularly the case with mechanical drives in laptops, which often get knocked around a fair bit and, as a result, have a limited shelf life. There’s also the ongoing risk of losing your data to hackers. Ransomware, for example, can encrypt everything on a hard drive and make it forever inaccessible. These are just some of the reasons why you need a robust data backup solution that you can depend on. Manually backing up your files isn’t a practical or suitable option, however, since it provides minimal protection from a complete system failure, and there’s always the chance of human error entering the equation.
Enter drive image software – the best possible solution for backing up your data. TeraByte Drive Image Backup creates a complete image of your hard drive or any other digital storage media. That means there’s no chance of missing something important – it’s occupying a sector on the source media, then you will have a copy of it. Furthermore, drive image software makes a copy of all your apps, operating system files and all the other content on the device, which makes it a perfect solution when you’re replacing your hard drive and don’t want to have to manually install everything all over again. You can simply transfer your system disk image to the new drive, and you’ll be able to boot up your computer and start using it as though nothing ever happened. That’s a lot quicker and easier than starting from scratch every time you replace your PC or simply want to upgrade your hard drive.
TeraByte Drive Image Backup is more than just another backup and data recovery tool, and it does more than just create disk images. In fact, it is a highly versatile and extensively customizable solution that comes with many useful additional features. For example, you can create backups from lots of different types of storage device before copying your archives over to external disks or even uploading them to the cloud for extra safety and accessibility from anywhere. Optical disks are also supported. Furthermore, there’s a convenient recovery disk wizard that you can use to restore your disk images quickly and easily with just a few clicks of the mouse. You can back up multiple partitions, create complete byte-by-byte images of your disks or create smaller images by using compression or ignoring unoccupied sectors. Finally, by using the PHYLock and Volume Shadow Copy services, you can safely continue using your computer while disk imaging is in progress – this is especially convenient since it can take quite some time to create a complete disk image of today’s typically massive hard drives!
