DAEMON Tools Lite 10.8 brings new features to Bootable USB group. Now it's possible to Grab a USB or Format a USB with the help of our software!

If you need to save the copy of data that is currently on your device, Grab a USB feature will come in hand. Data will be saved as *.img file, and you can access it anytime you need. This feature goes hand in hand with the Raspberry Pi SD installation: you need to back up your card from time to time to save progress.
