Editors' reviewAs floppy disks are sinking into oblivion, WinImage is getting more and more versatile. In addition to creating floppy disk images, it now can replicate CD-ROMs and hard drives. It reads disc images in several formats, and its handy interface makes functions readily accessible. It's easy to create an image file and add and extract files. With the included FileDisk freeware driver, you even can mount disc images as virtual drives. Though its support for CD-ROM and hard-drive imaging doesn't trump the competition's, WinImage is a very credible tool for users with legacy systems.
WinImage is a disk-imaging suite for easy creation, reading, and editing of many image formats and file sytems, including DMF, VHD, FAT, ISO, NTFS and Linux. The disk image is an exact copy of a physical disk (floppy, CD-ROM, hard disk, USB, VHD disk, etc.) or a partition that preserves the original structure. With WinImage in place, you can recreate the disk image on the hard drive or other media, view its content, extract image-based files, add new files and directories, change the format, and defragment the image. All this and more is delivered in one intuitive user interface that enables imaging right out of the box. The program has many utilitarian uses at home and in the office. As a serious PC user, you probably have tons of old but still useful floppy disks. As a hard-disk backup solution, WinImage allows you to save hours and even days restoring a system and configurations on a machine that has experienced a hard-disk crash.
Version 8.0.8 adds VHD support.
