What is "Image" ?

I bet many of readers don't understand what is "Image", of course it is not a picture. if you are a experienced computer user. you would know what is to "Create Image".
This a picture from Jihosoft Recovery software interface. Not like other recovery software, It has the function of create Image, It is quite useful if you know how to use it.
Let me explain what is Image first, Yes, it could be a backup of a disk, check the picture upon, click the "Create Image" you will be asked to chose a disk to create a disk's Image,  imaging a drive is more like creating a great big file. Image backup software copies everything on the drive into a single, compressed, but still very large file. Images are computer files containing the contents and structure of a disk volume or an entire data storage device, such as a hard drive, tape drive, floppy disk, optical disc or USB flash drive. A disk image is usually created by creating a sector-by-sector copy of the source medium, thereby perfectly replicating the structure and contents of a storage device independent of the file system. 
you can Create a Image of USB drive in your computer and you have the USB drive's backup forever, you can recover the file from Image, use the Image to recover the files can even make your recovery process more accurate.

Here is Steps to create Image:

It is easy, once you know how to use of the Create image.
Because the Image contains the whole disk, it will take rather long time to create an Image, but if you are creating an Image of a storage device like USB drive, it will take less time than a whole drive.    

After you create the Image, you can use it for recovery, the Image you create can also have other use, it is like a backup for your whole disk.

Hope this article can help you with something.
