Snapshot - DiskImaging for Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/7/8/8.1/10/2008/2008R2/2012/2012R2/2016/2019/PE/x64

Test the Snapshot Userinterface
SnapShot is disk imaging software that enables the user to back up, restore and view backed up hard disk data, easily and safely.
Using WindowsNT driver technology, Snapshot brings two new features to disk imaging:

Snapshot Backup - create disk    images while Windows is running

This allows the user to work in his usual environment when backing up his data.

Any device suitable for file storage can be used for the image destination, like your local drive, a network drive or any removable drive

And - most important - the image will be an industrial quality image, even though WinNT constantly writes to the disk.
The user may continue to work normally, while a backup operation is in progress; the image will still be valid and consistent.
This enables one of the most important things in backup business: backup often

It is even possible to make an image backup for servers, that must be online 24 hours a day.
More details about Snapshot Backup

Snapshot Backup - Main use

Snapshot Backup is aimed at the backup/disaster recovery market.
There is little use for on the fly disk image creation, if you want to deploy hundreds or thousands of workstations.
We think however, that the possibility to do on the fly backup is very important for the end user to regularly protect his data.
At least, this was our reason to create Snapshot.
No need to shut down and boot from floppy, no need to create network disks, and no need to wait half an hour for the backup process - we think that's nice.

Snapshot View - Explore saved disk images the friendly way

The image file is presented to the user as a virtual drive.
This virtual drive can be used like any other drive, using any Windows program, be it Explorer, Norton Commander, or your favourite MP3 Player.

Snapshot View - Main use

Snapshot View is a very easy and powerful method to explore disk images.
This technique could be easily adapted to disk images created by other disk imaging programs.


Drive Snapshot works on all versions of Windows NT or better, like NT/2000/XP/2003/7/8/10/2008/2008R2/2016/2019 and all versions of Windows PE.

You need administrative rights to use Snapshot.
