What is it?

DeviceImage-Tools Project is intended to work out the most reliable, flexible and easy to use software solution to perform a system disaster recovery or fast backup-restore operations of whole disk device or its partition without a deep knowledge of software functionality. The most efficient solution for this purpose could be a device imager. Disk images provide a powerful backup-restore solution and are exact copies of your hard drive which are created by using low level byte by byte copy operation. So even if your drive goes bad, you will still have an entire copy of your system that you can restore.

This software solution could be very useful in following cases:
