Image files are files containing a raw sector-by-sector image of a drive. You can recover from an image file in the same way you can from a physical drive. Click the yellow tile Image files... in the Select Drive screen to open an image file as a drive.
Image files have the extension ".img". Compressed images have the extension ".imc".
Image files can consist of:
multiple files (e.g. drive128.img, drive128.001, drive128.002, ..., drive128.999, drive128.a00, drive128.a01, ...)
Multiple files are helpful when you image to a drive with limited file size, e.g., FAT32. Segments of a multiple file image are about 656MB in size. A smaller size indicates the end of the image set.
