Restore 8GB usb-drive from image-file

Post by pav » 05 Jul 2010 16:54

Hello,

I created an raw-image from my 8GB usb-stick. I'm able to open the image file and watch the content successfully. Now I was trying to "raw-write" the whole image back to my usb-drive. Is there a way to copy the whole image back to the usb-drive?

Of course "Copy and Paste" is not working because I'm not able to hold 8GB into the clipboard. Is there an hidden option? Something like "Copy Image to Drive" or something like that?

Thanks for helping?

Best regards,
Volker

A feature to write-back files to disks will be added in a future version of HxD. Meanwhile, if the image is to big for the clipboard you would have to copy it chunk-wise. Or, you can use dd for Windows to write the image back.
