O&O DiskImage 7 Product manual

O&O DiskImage 7 
Force writing method

Under Clone drive/Cloning options/Advanced you can force the writing method. "Write to drive" is the default writing method used for the "Used sector" and "Forensic" cloning methods . "Write directly to disk" is the only writing method used during "Direct Forensic" cloning. You can, however, force a user-defined writing method.

  • Enable Force writing method and select the respective method.

Using the option Write to drive, data will be written to the drive with help from the operating system, and not from the offset to the disk.

With the option Write directly to disk, you can decide whether a restoration should be written directly to a disk, bypassing the file system driver. This function applies especially to encrypted disks and is required for restoring any disks that have been imaged using the direct forensic method.
