Creating images on a regular basis is your only protection against data loss. Working daily on your computer causes it to collect ever larger amounts of data. If your last image was created some time ago, it does not include your most current files.
In the O&O DiskImage control center (start page), you get an overview of drives that have either not been imaged or whose image is considerably old. The color on display reflects the lapse of time since the last image was created.
0 - 10 Days = Green
10 - 20 Days = GreenYellow
20 - 30 Days = Yellow
Over 30 Days = Orange
Never been imaged = Red
We strongly advise you to prevent data loss and protect yourself with just a few clicks:
- Click Image non-imaged drives now.
- Then check the target path entered for the image. We recommend saving the image on an external drive, e.g. USB hard drive.
- Click Start to continue with the imaging process. The process might take some time depending on the size of the drive.
Note: An image of all the listed drives will be created using default settings (Image of used sectors).
Tip: You can create a job for automatically imaging your drives on a regular basis. See chapter Scheduled functions.
Tip: If you want to create an image of your entire computer, you can also use One-click imaging.
