DriveImage XML

dixml.gif DriveImage XML is a pretty cool little tool that allows you to backup your logical drive, or partition to images. You can then browse these images, copy from drive to drive, and even extract files from the images. Using Microsoft’s VSS, you can now image running drives safely and since the files are stored in XML, it can be processed by external third party tools also. That makes the drive images very flexible. DriveImage XML only works with XP, 2003, and Vista and the partitions have to be FAT16,FAT32, or NTFS. Pretty typical of Windows boxes, eh?
Last but not least. It’s free. Yes, you heard the man. Free. For Windows.
