This program is designed to write a raw disk image to a removable device or backup a removable device to a raw image file. It is very useful for embedded development, namely Arm development projects (Android, Ubuntu on Arm, etc). Anyone is free to branch and modify this program. Patches are always welcome.
This release is for Windows 7/8.1/10. It will should also work on Windows Server 2008/2012/2016 (although not tested by the developmers). For Windows XP/Vista, please use v0.9 (in the files archive).
Warning: Issues have been reported when using to write to USB Floppy drives (and occasionally other USB devices, although very rare). While this has been fixed in v1.0, it is highly recommended that before an image is written to a device, the user should do a Read to a temporary file first. If this fails, please report the failure along with your system information.
Currently, the program will crash if you are using a Ramdisk. This is being debugged.
- Raw reading and writing to removable media
Does what it says, read and write disk image from and to a storage device. The only drawback is it can only read exact copy of the disk (not occupied sector only which have smaller file size) without compression.
Lost all memory on a flash drive, 8Gb = 2 Mb.
I have used this Program to install Kali Linux from a USB-Stick. I thought it would work like YUMI (It would only add the input of the Kali.iso), but it has formatted my hole drive. I know how to work with a Computer, but a little warning Screen wouldn't be bad!!!
Selecting .iso files not intuitive. Messages before burn about making the USB device are scary. Decided not to use because I like mys USB devices to last for a little while at least
On a Macbook Air with Windows 7 pro, it always gets up to a percent (I think around 70%) then it stops, tried man times, it doesn't fail immediately, so that you time is always wasted. On a Lenovo Thinkpad the backup was created properly, I am not sure how reliable the restore is.
