Images are very useful if there is a risk of total data loss due to hardware malfunction. If bad blocks are constantly appearing on a hard drive or its S.M.A.R.T. state is poor, an image of this hard drive should be immediately created. All data search and recovery can be done from this image.
1. Right-click a disk and select Create Image on the shortcut menu. Highlight the required field.
2. Select a place to store the image file and click the Save button.
R‑Photo will start creating the image showing the progress.
* Click the Open image button and select the file with the image.
The image will appear. You may recover files from that image as if it was a real device.
