Recovering lost data using Disk image

There are times when you try to recover data from your hard drive, and end up losing the files permanently. This can be avoided to a great extent, if you take a complete backup of the all the files and folders. But merely taking a backup of the files and folders will not do, as it is essential to backup even the system files to form a complete disk image.

A disk image is a file that is a replica of the entire hard drive. It is a sector by sector copy of the entire hard drive compressed into one single file. The disk image file can be of different formats like .bin, .iso, .img etc. Prior to disk imaging software, the task of creating a copy of the entire hard drive was a highly complicated process. But, with the advent of disk imaging software, creating a copy of the entire hard disk has become easier than ever.

Not only is a disk image software important for creating a copy of the entire hard disk, but it also acts as a good backup using which you can recover any lost or deleted data. Since a disk image is saved in a different format, it is important to make use of a data recovery software that can effectively recover data from these files.

The user can later use this data recovery software, to recover lost data from disk image file that has been created. This not only is a safer option, but also gives the user the option to recover data from the disk image at his convenience.
