Drive Image XML - Free Backup Tool

DriveImage XML is a program that allows users to create backup images of their hard drives or partitions. Here are some of its key features:

  • Backup and Restore: It enables users to create exact copies (images) of hard drives or partitions, allowing for easy backup and restoration.
  • Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS): The program uses VSS to create a snapshot of the drive, ensuring that the backup is taken in a consistent state, even if the drive is in use.
  • Scheduled Backups: Supports scheduled backups, allowing users to automate the backup process.
  • Image Compression: The program offers compression options to save disk space by reducing the size of the backup images.
  • Explorer-like Interface: It provides a user-friendly interface, similar to Windows Explorer, making it easier to navigate and manage backup tasks.
  • Raw Disk Image Backup: Can create raw disk images, capturing all data, including unused space.
  • Support for Windows File Systems: It works with various Windows file systems, including FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, and NTFS.
  • Drive to Drive Copy: Users can directly copy one drive to another, making it useful for drive upgrades or migrations.
