Drive Snapshot creates an exact Disk Image of your system into a file, including the operating system, installed programs, your data, and all security attributes – while windows are running and you continue to work. If disaster strikes (a virus, trojan, or hard disk crash), a complete and exact restauration of your system will be possible in only a few minutes. Single files and directories can be easily restored, using Windows Explorer, or used by any other program (e.g. WINDIFF). Restart to DOS is only necessary if you must restore your system partition. Otherwise, there is no need to reboot – not even during installation. Drive Snapshot saves only the use disk space, compresses the data, and is extremely fast – a P4/2GHz will save approx. 1GByte/Minute on a local disk drive.
