Windows 7: FREE Great Programs for Windows 7 [2]

Oh! Thanks mjf.

I did notice Volume Mode but couldn't get into any other mode.

Now I know why.

I shall try it as an administrator when time permits ( after another 12 hours) and then report.

Good there is a discussion on this and thanks again.

Yes indeed. I ran the tool as an administrator and in Device Mode to create an image of my bootable Lucid Puppy pendrive. I restored the image also as an administrator and was able to boot from the pendrive.

This is adequately explained in the FAQ section alex's coding playground FAQ

While doing this experiment, I also noticed that if one does not run the tool as an administraror while restoring the bootable image (Volume Mode), the pendrive turns RAW, necessitating a format operation. I repated it thrice to make sure that it is so.

So users have to make sure that they run the tool as an administrator(and in Device Mode) while restoring a bootable image or else they have to go through the extra work of formatting the pendrive and repeating the process correctly.

The other point the users have to note is:

Whether they use ImageUSB or USB Image tool, if they write the bootable image to a larger capacity pendrive than the original pendrive from which it was imaged, the extra space on the larger drive will remain unallocated and Windows will not see the extra space other than that of the donor pendrive.

For example if the flash drive from which one created the bootable image is 2 GB,and it was cloned to a 8GB pendrive, 6GB in it will remain as unallocated and Windows will not see it. So one may not be able to format the full 8GB with Windows.It will format only the 2GB which it sees.

I used HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool to format and regain the full capacity of the pendrive after these experiments.

Something doesn't seem right there. I've used USB Image Tool for imaging/restore quite a few different bootable UFDs and haven't run into any boot issues. You do have to use it in "device" mode though rather than "volume" mode.

The only issue I've run across is applying an image from on drive to another, but only when the receiving drive is a few bytes smaller than the original drive. It has never been a problem if the receiving drive is the exact same size or greater.

Gonna have to try ImageUSB one day to check out what it may offer. Thanks for posting it!

Probably was Recusant out of curiosity were you running Comodo as well at the time of the new version. Mind you I don't know about you but the Comodo firewall is probably as good as you are going to get anyway.

Plus I haven't heard of Zone Alarm being mentioned for ages

It just has random conflicts with random programs. I can't remember the sordid history with other apps, but most recently it wouldn't play with uTorrent. I changed the firewall and no more system freezes. Oh, it also usually rates poorly here: www.matousec.com
