Drive snapshot is an excellent, low cost, accessible, drive image utility,
that provides a full imaging solution without a complicated or messy

One advantage of this utility is that it does not require a reboot, or use a
boot-time image creation process; it will run in the background from Windows
while you carry on doing other work.  (It does advise you to refrain from
heavy disk use while the imaging process starts up).  Most other drive
imaging software will require you to shutdown and reboot your machine while
the image is taken, usually before the screen reader is launched.


The image files it creates can be mounted using the included simple software
that means that you can browse an image file using Windows Explorer as if it
was simply another drive.  You can copy files and folders from this image to
your "live" disk drive, which is a very simple way of restoring data files.
(This method will not allow a full restoration of a complete disk).  The
full restoration of a disk image may require some sighted assistance or
script/batch writing to automate the process, but the image files provide an
accessible form of data backup.

Hi List:


I would like to find a drive imaging program for backing up my hard drive.
What drive imaging programs work with JAWS? E.G. True Image, Norton Ghost,


Thanks in advance.
