1. How To Image A Mac

Stellar Data Recovery Professional for Mac facilitates the option to create an image of the entire drive/volume. Moreover, users can create the image of a particular sector or region as well. Create Image option is viable when the drive/volume has bad sectors. Also, the image file created is saved as a DMG file format. The process of creating an image of the drive is simple.

Follow these steps to create an image of the drive/volume:

You can create an empty disk image, add data to it, then use it to create disks, CDs, or DVDs. In the Disk Utility app on your Mac, choose File New Image Blank Image. Enter a filename for the disk image, add tags if necessary, then choose where to save it.

  • Select Advanced Settings which is at the bottom of the screen to create an image of the specific sector (starting and ending sector).
  • The software creates the image of the drive. After the completion of the process, the image created is displayed in the drive list.

My img file created from previous version 7.0 can't load by the new version 8.0. Is it any other ways ?


Danny Chan

We would like to inform you that in order to load the version 7 image file you need to install the version 7 software because of the compatibility. You will not be able to use the version 7 image into version 8 software.
