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.
Warning: Issues have been reported when using to write to USB Floppy drives (and occasionally other USB devices, although very rare). 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 (file a new bug, NOT a review).
Please do not use the reviews area for questions or bugs, as I have no way of responding to them.

- Raw reading and writing to removable media
Used to use this tool almost every day, it's very good indeed. But since I found it's modern, more feature rich alternarive (look for dotNet Disk Imager), I use only that. It has solved almost all bugs and added features requested for win32 disk imager.
Good tool! What I learned: - The tool does not keep Windows awake, so you need to turn off automatic Standby. (@developer: use SetThreadExecutionState...) - Do not use a microSD<->normalSD adapter when writing a (Raspberry Pi) image to the microSD. Use a USB adapter or card reader.
Feature request. Ability to remember last folder used. It Assumes I want to pull from the downloads folder and it would be nice if it would use the same folder I select next time.
Extremely useful for flashing Linux images and making backups. I would really love to see it allow the use of internal/built in card readers. The addition of icons to the read write buttons could not only make the UI more attractive but make it more straightforward for those who use it less frequently. It's clear which to use, read vs write, but adding icons may make it seem more intuitive.
pelo jeito é bom(good).
