Features:

  • Total Reliability – Provides the option to verify each and every byte it backs up.
  • Convenience – Runs directly from Windows and when used with the free PHYLock™ add-on, it can create a true image of the Windows partition itself, without requiring a reboot.
  • Security – Your backups can be secured using simple password protection, or full 256-bit AES encryption.
  • Backup Changed Data – Differential backup option allows you to backup only data that has changed since the last full backup was created.
  • Simple, Wizard-Driven interface – Easy to use the first time, and every time.
  • Maximum Compression – By default, compression is applied to the drive images you create.
  • Maximum Speed – If backup speed is paramount, you can bypass compression entirely.
  • Optical Drive Support – You can save directly to a CD, DVD, DVD-DL, BD.
  • Bootable Rescue Discs – Whenever you save directly to a CD, DVD, DVD-DL, BD, it will automatically become a bootable restore disc.
  • Large drive support – GPT compatible supporting drives larger than 2Tb.
  • Restore Individual Files or Folders – Using the free TBIView and TBIMount add-ons, you can view the contents of the drive image files, and optionally restore individual files or folders within them.
  • Compatibility – Automatically recognizes and backs up used area of FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, Ext2, Ext3, Ext4, ReiserFS, and XFS partitions. Partitions with other file system types can be backed up in their entirety. Supports all standard partitions in an MBR, EMBR, or GPT
  • Windows Servers – Supports both Workstation and Server versions of Windows.
  • Cost Effectiveness – Includes Image for DOS, Image for Linux, and TBOSDT at no additional charge, making it a uniquely affordable and complete disk imaging solution.
  • Flexibility – Restore partitions, regardless of the file system on the partition being restored. This gives you the power to restore NTFS partitions from Windows 98 or even DOS (as just a couple of examples).
  • Wide-Ranging Device Support – Compatible with USB 2 and IEEE 1394 external drives. Better yet, Image for DOS supports these drives directly, without requiring complicated driver installation. (Image for Windows simply uses the drivers already available under Windows.)
  • Power – Using Image for DOS or Image for Linux (each of which is included with the purchase of Image for Windows) versions gives you the ability to recover your data, even if Windows won’t start.
  • Network Support – Save backups to any drive accessible to Windows itself.
  • RAID Support – Works seamlessly with on-board hardware- and firmware-based RAID.
  • Command Line Support – Powerful, complete command line support is built in, allowing you to automate backup or restore procedures.
  • Scheduling – Leverages the built-in Windows scheduler via the simple click of a Schedule Backup button.
  • Image File Validation – Allows you to thoroughly check the integrity of the disk image files, either as part of the backup process, or at any time thereafter. TeraByte imaging products are renowned for their thorough and accurate validation process.
  • Restored Partition Expansion – When restoring an image, you can expand the restored partition to occupy any free space that would be left over.
  • Selectable Image File Sizes – If desired, you can specify a maximum size for the disk image files that are created. This allows you to create image files that readily fit on the removable media of your choice.
  • Hardware Independent Restore – Restore Windows to completely different hardware and then use the TeraByte OSD Tool Suite to install the drivers required to support the new hardware.
  • First External 4Tb Hard Drive!

    Solved:Vista wireless not connecting properly

    Over the past few years, since Vista came out, I have on numerous occasions found that a new laptop – or a re-installed
    laptop will not connect to the local wireless system in a customers home.

    The SSID is discovered correctly, and it will accept the password, but no matter what I would do it would NOT connect to the internet and get to the point where it asks if this is a home or business internet. (And thus the customer could not access the web, nor get emails)

    Initially this just seemed to be an incompatibility between the wireless network card and the router because in all circumstances the laptop would work on another network.

    I discovered this fix whilst working on yet another system which absolutely HAD to work with the current router, so after a lot of digging I found this Microsoft KB article explaining how to fix it automatically or manually. The KB article explains exactly why this fix is necessary and why it does NOT occur in Windows 7.
