“Image of Linux” is fascinating
utility of the Linux based operating system. This utility is intended for
making disk images which later can be used to restore or backup data and
kind of utility provides the Linux users with utmost convenience in using Linux
systems. You can go on using your Linux
box without any headache for the data loss and system crashes.
With this “image of Linux” utility,
you can easily create an image capturing the current data and systems states.
The created images then can be stored in a storage device of your choice. You
can use optical disks (CD or DVD) for storing those images. In the future, if
your system crashes, you can get the system back in a running state by using
the images that you captured using the “image for Linux” utility. You can your
valuable data back by using the storage devices (cd or DVD) that contain the
created images. Besides data restoration, those stored images can be used in getting
a crashed system back in the state that is captured within those images.
Therefore, with the images created by this
stunning utility software, you can restore you Linux system and the associated
data to a desired state. For this, you
have created image of the Linux system and associated data with this utility
and then preserve that image in a storage device (CD or DVD). The point of time
for creation of images is very important .with an image you can restore your
system only to the state prevailing at the time of capturing.
Therefore, it is beneficial to
create images of Linux system at regular interval and storing those in storage devices.
Thus you can avail the problems occurred by sudden system crashes and resulting
loss of data.
This software domes in two different
flavors, for command line interface and graphical user interface. The version that is command line interface is
compatible with large line of Linux distributions. But the version with
graphical user interface may not run effectively on all variations or
distributions of Linux. The product manual provides details on the
compatibility with different Linux distributions.
The system requirement is not very
high for running this utility software. Any IBM standard personal computer
hardware is compatible with this software. And in case of operating system, a Linux
kernel of 2.6 versions is recommended. Memory consumption is also very
moderate. For the version of command line interface, only 128 MB RAM is enough.
The version with graphical user interface requires more, at least 256 MB of
RAM. If no networking facility is required, then you can run the software with
For storing the captured image,
optical devices (CD, DVD) can be used. But the makers of “image for Linux”
recommend an external hard drive for this purpose.
This utility is a worthy tool for Linux
