  • Progress bar of how much data has already been sent.
  • Wiping of disks with known patterns.
  • Verification that the image is identical to the original drive, bit-for-bit.
  • Simultaneous output to more than one file/disk is possible.
  • The output can be splitted into multiple files.
  • Logs and data can be piped into external applications.
