Hello,

I found today your product smile

Is it possible that you can add a automatic compression mode for .img files that the files are smaller?

Thank you in advance smile

That's a bit complicated because we are using differential writing where only the changed blocks are written back from a RAM Disk to its associated image. Regular compression can't be used this way as we'd be unable to only update specific parts of the image file when it's compressed.

Sometimes you can get the answer faster if you try the forum search and/or have a look at the software user manual to see if your question has already been answered.

Our forum rules are simple:

  • Be polite.
  • Do not spam.
  • If possible, check your spelling and grammar.
