What is Image for Linux?

Image for Linux (or IFL) is a partition imaging program that is designed to run on a Linux-based operating system. The user interface is very similiar to Image for DOS (IFD) and the images it creates are 100% compatible with the other TeraByte Unlimited imaging programs of the same version. Image for Linux is packaged together with Image for DOS so that any purchase of one product automatically includes the other. In addition, any purchase of Image for Windows automatically includes both Image for Linux and Image for DOS.

Image for Linux can be run:

  • from any Linux distribution (a 2.6 series kernel is recommended)
  • from a bootable CD/DVD created from Windows or Linux
  • from a USB flash drive or hard drive partition
  • from a PXE network boot
  • interactively from the menu interface
  • from the command line
  • from a script
  • from a terminal window within the X environment (such as an xterm)
  • from the Linux console outside of the X environment

With Image for Linux you can:

  • create, restore, validate images on unmounted FAT, FAT32, NTFS, or EXT2/3/4 partitions
  • create, restore, validate images on any mounted file system, including network drives
  • create bootable CD/DVD restore discs

Additional information can be found on the Image for Linux product page on the website and in the Image for Linux manual.
