Image Files

Image files are files containing a raw sector-by-sector image of a drive. You can recover from an image file in the same way you can from a physical drive. Click the yellow tile Image files... in the Select Drive screen to open an image file as a drive.

Image files have the extension ".img". Compressed images have the extension ".imc".
