There are different reasons why you may need to create a disk image. For example, the image may be useful in recovering data or even for forensic purposes. DataNumen Disk Image is powerful enough to clone a disk either byte by byte or using its raw data.

The free utility is good at repairing both corrupt Self Extracting Files (SFX) and IMG files. It minimizes file corruption loss by recovering as much data as possible in IMG archives.

Features:

  • Clones data from corrupted media
  • Uses specified data to replace damaged sectors
  • Supports batch cloning of multiple disks
  • Supports all types of drives and disks
  • Compatible with all Windows operating systems

Using DataNumen Disk Image

DataNumen Disk Image features a simple and user-friendly interface with a bluish theme. It has four tabs named Clone, Batch Clone, Options and About respectively.

The Clone tab gave us a drop-down list of all the drives connected to our computer. If we connected or disconnected a drive, we easily updated the list by clicking the 'refresh' button. Once we had selected the drive we wanted to clone, we typed the name we wanted for the disk image and specified the location to save it.

The interface displayed a warning note with block letters in red color warning against specifying the source drive or disk as the output destination.

We then clicked the 'Start Cloning' button and watched the progress bar showing percentage of task completed. A pop-up window appeared after successful creation of the disk image, telling us that we could open the fixed PST file using Outlook.

The cloning process log below the progress bar gave us information about the path of output file and time taken during cloning, up to milliseconds. It also displayed the details formerly shown on the pop-up window, which included the number of sectors in the cloned drive.

A dedicated button on the lower right corner of the program window allowed us to save the log file, including system information.

The Batch Clone tab worked in a similar manner except that it allowed us to select more than one drive to clone. From the Options tab, we could specify the number to use in replacing damaged data, directory for temporary files and size of internal processing buffer in bytes.

Conclusion

Although DataNumen Disk Image is free, it provides simple to use, but effective features for creating disk images.

Pros: It creates a disk image!

Cons: No compression of disk image, meaning it uses a lot of space on your backup medium. Not particularly fast compared to other free imaging software. No option to browse the disk image to extract files from it. And the biggest flaw IMO, is that there is no Boot Disk option, so if your computer won't boot, how are you supposed to restore the image?

Other Thoughts: I'll stick with Macrium Reflect Free, although EaseUs and Aomei are also worth a look.
