Backing up the hard drive is essential not only when someone is working on an important project but even at times when daily usage is significant and data loss may be substantial. The DriveImage XML helps in taking care of any possible accidents resulting in data loss and helps the user in backing up logical drives and partitions to image files and also to browse them, view and extract files.

The user can easily restore these images to the same location or a different drive, depending upon the requirements, and also copy them directly from a drive to another drive. The application stores the images in xml format and therefore they can be processed with the help of third party tools, which is an added advantage.

The image creation makes use of the Volume Shadow Services (VSS) of Microsoft, allowing user to create safe cool images even from currently used drives. The latest version of the program offers couple of compression levels and hence greater flexibility as well as reliability.

Essentially the application is all about creating efficient back up, however it does a lot more, and it supports restoration of drives formatted with FAT 12, 16, as well as 32 and NTFS.
