imaging cloning backup restore

What can you do with CloneDisk?

Main feature is backup/restore to/from an imagefile and clone a disk to another.

But you can also (not exhaustive) :
-save/restore the MBR or BS,
-delete the layout of the drive
-wipe with 0's,
-create a raw image file,
-make a Vmware or MS Virtual Server image from a raw image file to boot your cloned disk in vmware,
-do various operations on the registry around booting,
-format any device to fat16/fat32/ntfs/exfat/udf (includig usb pen),
-read faulty devices (with bad sectors for instance),
-perform speed tests,
-edit the partition table, view the boot sector ,

-create a disk, create a partition,
-extend / shrink a volume.

Some technical remarks :
The drive will be locked and dismounted before reading / writing.
CloneDisk will use 64k aligned buffer to achieve best performances.
CloneDisk should handle file up to 2^63-1 bytes.

You can read the image file with winimage or 7zip, or mount it with ImDisk or VDK (mirror).
You can also share the thru an iscsi target with Rocket Division Starwind.
