Thank you Alex for making this easy to use and very usefull tool. I have a Linux OS on a Sandisk 8gb drive and use your image tool to back it up and restore on a new flash drive (cloning). I was wondering if there is a way to password protect the new image so it cannot be cloned again without the password? Than you very much!

There is no built in password protection. Password strength for compressed file formats isn't very well. Maybe you want to encrypt the whole OS. See http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/create ... ux-mint-16 for example.

Thank you very much Alex, I'll check it out. I have OpenELEC on USB, made some clones with the Image Tool and they are all working so far.

Cheers
