Now Let’s ask Why you must backup your data!
Most users learn how valuable a reliable and up-to-date backup after they suffer their first loss of important files as a result of software, hardware or user error. When you back up a PC, O&O DiskImage saves all personal files as well as hard drive information and individual settings. This will protect important files and documents and saves you the trouble of time-consuming new setup of Windows and programs. In addition, O&O DiskImage 14 you let you restore the Image onto a new PC with different hardware with the help of the built-in MIR function.
Why Image is important for you?
Backup of your system and data in the form of an Image is much better than simple copy of your data on external storage devices. You will never lose any of your important data. The huge advantage with an Image is that it takes up much less space. Using special algorithms, it is also able to recognize and save just the changes made since the previous image (follow-up images). This way you can easily manage your Images and when disaster strikes, simply restore your lost data with a few mouse clicks.
What are the New Features in O&O DiskImage 14?
DiskImage To Go:
In the previous releases of the program you need to do regular back up of your machineand to create separate O&O DiskImage boot media to restore that backup. Everything is easier now! The new DiskImage To Go function automatically turns an external hard drive that you select to store an image on into an O&O DiskImage boot medium, and marks this disk as the preferred storage medium for future system backups. Once you connect this external USB hard disk to your computer, the program will automatically create an image of all internal drives and the data partition onto it. In this way; it is easy to create a recent backup and restore the image if something really happens to your computer or you want to transfer your system and all your data to a new computer. DiskImage boot medium makes the process very easy with just one touch of a button. You will not need to search for the boot medium and the external hard drive with the backup.
Support for VHDX Format
O&O DiskImage 14 now brings full support for the Virtual Hard Disk (VHDX) Format. The main advantage of VHDX is its increased storage capacity of 64 TB (terabytes), instead of VHD’s standard storage limit of 2 TB. Another advantage of VHDX is the file corruption protection.
O&O DiskImage 14 main uses and Functions

thanks for professional detailed review Heart Heart
Thanks for this reviiew
thanks for professional Review
I  have used O&O DiskImage for the last 3-4 years. I have not tried the new  O&O DiskImage 14.Currently I am using O&O DiskImage 12 and there is a lot to like about it. First of all it is very reliable and has never failed me. It is also very  feature rich. You can backup an entire computer or single files even while the computer is being used. SSD drives are also supported.  You can also perform a system restore, or clone an entire PC or hard drive. Best yet, you can restore the backups onto a PC whose hardware is different from the original PC.  
One of the features that I use regularly is to merge incremental images. Which means if you have created several incremental images, you can combine them into a new base image which now becomes a  “complete” image. So older images that contain only changes can be deleted once the merge has been completed.  This is great to help save space and reduce the number of images.
O&O DiskImage 14 has a number of new features , of which the best is that you no longer need to create a separate boot media to restore your backups.  This is called DiskImage  To Go, which turns the external hard drive where the backup  images are stored into the boot medium so that once you connect this external USB drive to your computer  the program will create an image of all internal drives and the data partition onto it.  You no longer need to search for the boot medium and the external drive that the backup is stored on.
The other new feature is VHDX format. Virtual Hard Disk (VHDX) Format. The advantage of VHDX is an increase of storage capacity to 64 terabytes. VHD’s standard storage limit was 2 terabytes.
The following note is a quote from the O&O DiskImage software manual:  Please make sure that no other backup or imaging software is installed on your computer when installing or working with O&O DiskImage.  This can lead to complications with the filter driver, especially when different software is working simultaneously on multiple drives.
In my opinion Disk Imaging software is just as important as anti-virus protection. Without a good, reliable backup it would be hard to recover from ransom ware attacks, data loss, virus problems and all sorts of other issues that would require you to reformat you computer.
Think of it as another layer of added security and peace of mind.
As we can tell, the interface of O&O DiskImage is quite easy to use when it comes to the backup process. In addition, O&O DiskImage 14 has a few new and useful features that can be of use to many users. The first one is the DiskImage To Go: it makes it much easier for user who use O&O DiskImage boot medium a lot to make a copy of the entire system. The second new feature is the added support for VHDX format: good news for users who would like to upgrade from VHD format. Basically, everyone needs a solid backup software to protect their valuable data. O&O DiskImage 14 offers all the backup solutions we may need and it is definitely a very good choice for both reliable and cost-effect backups.
