Today is World Backup Day! Let us help you to protect your data – before it’s too late!

World Backup Day is an independent initiative to help people learn about the increasing role of data in our lives and the importance of regular backups. Don’t be an April Fool – Backup your data regularly so that precious photos or documents are never lost!

The amount of data we own is increasing, be that private data or confidential business data. People often do not correctly protect this data by backing it up as that process itself is time-consuming. This applies to companies too. That is why O&O Software developed O&O DiskImage! A backup means you can restore old files, applications or an entire PC when something goes wrong, allowing you to turn back the clock any time you need to, and not just on World Backup Day!

The most important security software on your PC!

What is the most valuable thing you have saved on your PC? Yes, your data! Photos, documents, scans, private videos, business data and everything else you save in an electronic form. And this data needs protection. It is constantly under threat – from defective hard disks, SSDs, viruses, Ransomware and malware or even through simple accidental deletion. A current backup is the only protection to ensure your data is not lost forever. The new O&O DiskImage protects your data. Even if you are no computer expert, you can easily create images of your complete Windows system, clone drives or just backup your important files and folders.

With its own Recovery Partition

Normally with a backup or imaging program you need to create a boot medium (USB) to boot up your system if something goes awry.

Thanks to the integration into the system, the O&O DiskImage RecoveryPartition can be accessed immediately so that the last system image can be restored directly. If the Windows operating system does not start or if faulty drivers have to be uninstalled – with the integrated recovery environment, all O&O tools are available to make the system operational again as easily as possible.

O&O DiskImage ToGo

The O&O DiskImage ToGo function automatically turns an external hard drive that you select to store an image on (or USB flash drive with enough storage space) into an O&O DiskImage boot medium, and marks this disk as the preferred storage medium for future system backups. As soon as you connect this external USB hard disk to your computer, O&O DiskImage automatically creates an image of all internal drives and the data partition onto it. If something really happens to your computer or you want to transfer your system and all your data to a new computer, then with the O&O DiskImage boot medium you can restore the image stored on it with just one touch of a button.

Support for VHDX Format

O&O DiskImage brings full support for the VHDX (Virtual Hard Disk) Format. The main advantage of VHDX is its increased storage capacity of 64 TB (terabytes), instead of VHD’s standard storage limit of 2 TB. Another advantage of VHDX is the file corruption protection.

Why you must backup your data!

When you back up a PC, O&O DiskImage saves all personal files as well as hard drive information and individual settings. This not only protects irreplaceable files but, in a worst case scenario, also saves you the trouble of having to carry out a time-consuming new setup of programs and the Windows operating system. If you need to restore the Image onto a new PC with different hardware then O&O DiskImage can do this no problem. The integrated MIR function (Machine Independent Restore) enables this for you regardless of the hardware manufacturer or setup.
