IfW portable version within Windows?

Postby valnar » Tue Dec 06, 2016 4:58 am

Is it possible to create a portable version of Image for Windows that runs WITHIN Windows just like the regular version? I want to backup an encrypted computer but not load IfW on it. If I do it from a boot CD and use Image for Linux (my normal routine), it will be huge - will back up every sector. I run Sophos Safeguard encryption on the HDD.

there is tbwinpe/tbwinre (http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/howto/) , but
you'd need to add the safeguard driver to the build. The concepts of
truecrypt/veracrypt are the same for any encryption package.

Thanks. So no way to just have it run in Windows without being installed?

The offline image would be 500GB.

You could try it. Copy imagew.exe (32-bit) or imagew64.exe (64-bit) to the system and run it. Or you could copy the installation folder from a normal install. The backup would have to work with VSS, though, since PHYLock wouldn't be installed. So it would depend on if VSS works and how it sees the data.
