Best Disk Imager to Clone Disk/Partition in Windows

Updated on Dec 29, 2021

As a computer user, if your computer has stored the most important files, like thesis, financial documents, text messages, etc, you must want a Win disk imager, which will write a raw to a removable device, including USB flash drive, external hard devices, and more and clones the external hard drives which contains the important files as an image file. It’s a must, in case of an operating system crash, virus attack, or data loss due to intentional/unintentional deletion and you need to restore external hard drive or computer under Windows PC.

While you search for best disk imager or Win disk imager, you might get the results, which mostly recommend Win32 Disk Imager, which was developed a long time ago. To be honest, it’s really professional to clone disk as image files. However, it’s too professional for individuals to use and there are some bugs needed to be fixed. Some people said it didn’t work until bug #47 is fixed, and it isn’t a USB image writer at all. If you’re looking for a professional and newer Win disk imager or disk clone tool, I recommend you try iBeesoft Dbackup.
