Backups for preventive data backup, even without shutting down the IPC
Subsequent modification of partitions (size, format, etc.) without data loss and without re-installation
Irreversible and secure deletion of data, for example, to discard used hard disks
Simple duplication (cloning) of existing software collections
No need to change the target system to be edited (when starting directly from the CD, or a USB FlashDrive with Image & Partition Creator)

Cost reduction through significantly reduced downtime in the event of a fault
SIMATIC IPCs can be put back into operation within minutes after hard disk replacement
Software failures due to application errors, operating errors and computer viruses can be corrected in minutes
Backup and simple duplication
Fast bit-accurate backup and recovery of hard disk contents. This significantly reduces the time needed to restore compared to a new installation

Storing the archives in a protected "backup container"
Scheduled backup: Starting a previously configured full backup via the imaging software or the Windows Task Scheduler enables regular and unattended backups at any time.
Easy partition management without data loss
Enlarge/reduce existing partitions without data loss
Create new / delete existing partitions
Merge adjacent partitions
Convert file system without reformatting (for example, FAT32 to NTFS)
Edit file system parameters (for example, change partition ID / volume name, etc.)
Easy setup of multi-boot systems. Installation of a boot manager
Conversion from basic MBR to basic GPT hard disks
Defragmentation to optimize performance of the hard drive
Simple duplication (cloning)
Simple duplication (cloning) of existing software collections to other devices with the same features and the same intended use, for example, for quick, complete exchange of devices in the service case.
Support for virtual environments and virtual media
Backup and restore within virtual machines, Hyper-V guest machines, and virtual containers
Edit virtual data media
