Zipped image

Post by littlewing1977 »

I have a bootable 8GB flash drive that I have been cloning. Every time I make changes to the image, I clone the drive again. The image only takes about 500MB. I am cloning in device mode and I know that changing the partition size is not supported. The FAQ mentioned zipping the cloned image though. Is that a built in feature, or do I just have to clone my drive and then zip it with other software. I don't see any option for creating a compressed image.

When the Save file dialog appears, you can change the file type below the file name. Imz and gz are zipped file types.

You can choose the file type right below the text box, where you can enter the file name.
