Set Disk Image Options


Disk Image file name
Specify file name under which the newly created image will be stored.
  • The Target Location for the Disk Images must always be on other drive.
  • 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 split into several parts(chunks) by appropriate size.
Use compression for Disk Image creation
With this option on, the final Disk Image creates compressed - that will save some space on your HDD but makes your Disk Image less useful for further Data Recovery operations.
