Tools include Check image, Create emergency disk, Wipe data and iSCSI Initiator and so on.

  • Check image - can verify the validity of the image file after backup, and confirm that the image file can be recovered successfully, even if it has been some ¬†time since it was created. See Check image.
  • Create emergency disk - allows you to create an emergency disk. See Create emergency disk.
  • Mount/Unmount - In order to browse the files in the disk/partition image and confirm the data in it, we provide the Mount function to make sure you can restore the correct partition(s) image. Users can copy files directly from the mounted drive. See Mount/Unmount.
  • Wipe data - permanently erase data from chosen disk(s) or partition(s). You can set how many times to wipe with Erase Time. Be careful that you cannot undo this operation and the data will be lost forever.
  • Enable Pre-OS - Switch the status of Pre-OS between Enable and Disable by clicking Enable/Disable Pre-OS under the tool page. The name of the button depends on the current status of Pre-OS. If Pre-OS is enabled now, the button will be Disable Pre-OS. If Pre-OS is currently enabled, the button will display as Enable Pre-OS. Once the Pre-OS enabled, you will get a boot menu which has our product listed. Select it and you can use our product before Windows starts to load.
  • Convert image - can also convert your image file to virtual disk file with this separate tool. Follow these steps to perform a conversion task.

1. Click Convert image to run the tool.
2. Locate the image file you want to convert by choosing Browse behind the Backup image.
3. Specify the destination by directly inputting the path or Browsing the whole directory to find one.
4. Select the type of the virtual disk file you want to convert to. The 2 available file types for now are VMDK for VMWare and VHD for Virtual PC.
5. Click Proceed to implement the operation.

  • iSCSI Initiator - connect to and configure the iSCSI device.

* In addition, there are two methods connecting to an iSCSI target device:

2. If multiple targets are available at the target portal that is specified, a list is displayed. Click the desired target, and then click Connect.
3. Click Done.

Method 2: Advanced connection
1. Click the Discovery tab.
2. To add the target portal, click Discover Portal, and then in the Discover Portal dialog box, type the IP address or name of the target portal to connect to. If desired, you can also type an alternate TCP port to be used for the connection.

Once connected, you can operate the connected iSCSI hard drive as your physical hard drive on your system with EaseUS Todo Backup, such as backup, restore and so on.
