This page is intended to collect the names of some disk imaging tools.

I may want to add a page DiskImaging ("between" DiskImages and DiskImagingTools) -- disk imaging would be the act of creating an image of a disk as either a file (for future restoration to the original or a different disk) or directly on a different disk / medium. On one of these pages I should talk about the effect of disk geometry (does any imaging tool have a problem converting from one CHS geometry to another? -- or maybe it's now solved, maybe by LBA (geometry??)






  • rawrite (??) (sort of like dd??)
  • Drive Image
  • Norton Ghost (what I've been using most recently)

  • Image tool of choice for the intel community -- Interesting -- apparently used in forensics, among other things it sounds like it can keep the "evidence chain" intact (not sure if it does anything to recover "shredded files" (like many other tools it can deal with deleted but not overwritten files).


Prompted by this page: I need to have a way to distinguish between links to other WikiLearn pages and links to other sources, or, differently, see the entry for Partion Image -- today I have a link on this page to the download page and a link to a possible future WikiLearn page on Partition Image -- the reader should not be confused in any situation (well, he won't be if he looks at the link before leaping, but how many readers will do that?).
