USB Image Tool 1.61

New version 1.61 fixes a bug, that caused an access violation at the end of a backup to zip-compressed images. It also adds the option to use user-defined date/time formats for the file name suggestion. At the end of an restore operation, a rescan of all devices is now performed automatically.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but how do you restore the backed up image to a different location as in a new flash drive? Thanks.

  10. Alex Says:

    @Paddaricko: What do you mean by “different location”?

  11. Philippe Says:

    Merci !

  12. Paddaricko Says:

    What I mean is, I took an image of my flash drive using the tool, and stored it on my computer. That flash drive has now bitten the dust. I was the wanting to restore the image of that now defunct flash drive to a new one I have have bought.

  13. Alex Says:

    Then just insert the new flash drive with a size larger or identical to the original one, press the restore button and select the image file.

    ************** JIT-Debuggen **************
    Um das JIT-Debuggen (Just-In-Time) zu aktivieren, muss in der
    Konfigurationsdatei der Anwendung oder des Computers
    (machine.config) der jitDebugging-Wert im Abschnitt festgelegt werden.
    Die Anwendung muss mit aktiviertem Debuggen kompiliert werden.

    Zum Beispiel:

    Wenn das JIT-Debuggen aktiviert ist, werden alle nicht behandelten
    Ausnahmen an den JIT-Debugger gesendet, der auf dem
    Computer registriert ist, und nicht in diesem Dialogfeld behandelt.

    Gibt es Abhilfe? Ansonsten Dank und Gruß, Anselm

  19. Alex Says:

    @Anselm: Habe es nachgestellt. Wird mit dem nächsten Update korrigiert. Danke für das melden.

    I used your tool to back up my flash. There is an option to create a md5 check sum file. Now, I want to restore my flash. How can use this check sum file for restoring my flash? Where in the check box I specify it? I am using version 1.64


  21. Alex Says:

    @Mike: The md5 is intended for distributing the image (f.e. as download). Verifying the restored image currently is only possible with the command line tool.
