Drive SnapShot Disk Image Backup for Windows 2000/XP/Vista/2003/7/2008/2008 R2/8/8.1/2012/PE/x64
- Create Disk Image Backups, While Running Windows
The Backup process will back up all your data into a single file, containing all data, including system data and registry, for total security, should your computer ever crash.
There is no restart (to DOS) necessary.
- Continue your work, while the Backup is in progress
The new Snapshot technology ensures that all data are consistent, and reflect the PC’s data at the start of backup.
There are no difficulties with opened files.
This enables a very fast and easy way to back up servers and other computers, that must run 24 hours a day.
- Easy Use and Restore of single Files or directories
Drive Snapshot creates a virtual drive, containing all your drive’s data.
You may use, compare, or restore these files directly from the Disk Image file.
This works with any program of your choice, including (of course) the Windows Explorer
- Complete Restore of a disk in case of Disaster
If a disk is restored to its original state, it will be exactly the same as at the time of Backup – byte for byte.
Restoring a system partition will require DOS; other drives can be restored using Windows
- Compatible with all Windows file systems (FAT16, FAT32, NTFS,ReFS)
- Supports Linux EXT2/3/4/Reiser/XFS Compatible with all Windows file systems (FAT16, FAT32, NTFS,ReFS)
- Compatible with all Windows RAID Methods
- Very easy and comprehensive command line interface
This makes automation of regular tasks a breeze.

Snapshot – Trialware Download
Download this Trial ware of Snapshot; check it at your leisure, and see if it can be useful to you and your company.
Only after verifying its functionality, you are required to buy it.
The Trial ware version has a built-in time limit of approx. 30 days, after which it won’t backup any longer.
There are no other restrictions in the Trial ware version.
You are allowed to use Snapshot for a 30 day period, after which you must either BUY it, or stop using it.
Specifically in a corporate environment, where dozens or hundreds of computers must be backed up, the need to install software (and usually reboot it after installation), can be annoying.
Drive Snapshot does not require an installation.
It’s sufficient to download SNAPSHOT.EXE (about 350KByte) and to start it.
For pure 64-Bit Environments (WindowsPE and Windows64 Setup DVDs) you need the 64-bit SNAPSHOT64.EXE.
The normal 32-Bit Snapshot.exe runs on any version of Windows.
If you prefer a ‘normal’ installation, please download SETUP.EXE (about 3,5 MB).
SETUP copies Snapshot.exe into the \Programs directory, creates Start Menu entries, installs Help files (currently this website), and installs the necessary data to create a bootable DOS recovery diskette.
A complete Snapshot Setup requires about 2 MB free disk space.
Snapshot/Setup will NOT copy anything into your Windows or system directory.
Snapshot/Setup will NOT change anything in your system’s configuration.
Everything necessary for Snapshot’s operation will be dynamically done and undone.
Snapshot is intended to backup your computer in its present state, not to modify this state.
You need NOT to exit other programs to install Snapshot.
Just start it – and enjoy.
(1.41)64Bit Recovery Environment
In 64 Bit Recovery environments (WindowsPE, BartPE, 64 Bit Win7 Setup) the ‘normal’ 32-bit Snapshot.exe doesn’t work (‘the required subsystem is missing’ or similar). In these cases use the 64-bit Snapshot64.exe
Unfortunately ‘modern’ Microsoft compilers no longer support Windows NT4.
For Windows NT4, please use the older (1.40) Snap140.exe zur Verfügung.
