USB Image Tool has been designed to create and restore backups of connected USB flash drives. These flash drives can be USB sticks, mp3 player, digital cameras, cell phones and basically anything that uses flash storage to store data.

Quite a few usage scenarios are possible because of this. The USB Image Tool can be used to perform backups of data whenever a USB flash drive is connected to the computer system. This can be interesting to backup cell phone data, music, photos and basically anything else that is of importance to the user.

Another option is the creation of multiple images for the same device and to replace these images whenever the need arises. This could be an interesting option to fill mp3 players with different kinds of music or cell phones with applications or games based on travel or business plans.

The portable software program will automatically recognize connected USB flash drives. The drives are displayed in the left sidebar while general information about the selected drive are listed on the right side. Information include the drive's name, path, storage size and file system.

It is possible to backup or restore data with the click on one of the available buttons at the bottom of the screen. Several options are available that include adding favorite USB images to the interface or creating MD5 checksums during backups.

The USB Image Tool is compatible with most versions of the Microsoft operating system including Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. It can be downloaded from the developer's website.

    This looks like a simple, but well defined app that should do just what I need, image USB Flash Drives.

    I am always making bootable PE builds and often have to format my Flash Drive to backup some data or transfer files like ethernet or WLAN drivers or backup data files during PC troubleshooting and never seem to have enough GB of flash drives on hand. This should image the entire flash drive, incuding the MBR, I would assume.

    If so, I can make images of my PE builds, and whenever I need to recreate my PE builds to boot from USB I won’t have to worry about backing up MBR and boot system files manually each time. Build it once, edit, tweak, and update then image the data. Then a bootable PE enviroment should be only a mouse click and reboot away…

    Cross fingers, Hope this creates a true image and not simply a file sync tool…

    Nice find Martin. I have a ton of drives and always use 7zip to back them up. I’ll give this a try.
