If there is anything wrong with the backed up image, the process of restore will not be completed normally. The function of ‘image file checking

When restoring some important data from the image file, the correctness of the image file plays a very important role. For example, if we back up the system drive C into a CD, the image file might be damaged because of the CD scratching. As we all know, the process of restore is complete by overwriting the previous data of Drive C with the backed up data. So if the data in CD have been damaged, the recovered data on C Drive will be incorrect. Therefore, as for the image files stored on the destructible storage device, we should do an image file checking for it before restoration so as to ensure the correctness of the data.

AOMEI Backupper also provides the function of image file checking. With this function, you can complete the following tasks.

  • Ensure the integrality of the image file. For example, if you have split the image file into several small files, and one of them is lost, you will fail to complete the restoration.
  • Parts of the data have been slightly damaged. Then, after restoration, some of the files or programs can not be used normally. It can be diagnosed with the function of image file checking.
  • Through image file checking, you can find out the mistakes of the image file timely. As a result, you can make a corresponding backup in time to make up for the mistakes.

You can check the image through the following steps.

Step 1: Under the "Home" item, select "Check Image" under the "Advanced" option.
