WinSDCard is an application that can help you safeguard the data on your SD card by creating backups and saving the files on your computer. It does not simply execute a copy operation, but it generates an exact replica of the card contents, which enables you to restore it at a later time should anything go wrong.
The application is very intuitive, so working with it shouldn't pose difficulties. The presence of removable devices is automatically detected and you must select the one you want to use from a drop-down list.
WinSDCard displays information about the connected device, showing you the volume, the file system type, the allocated partition, as well as the total, used and available storage space on the physical drive. You can view the partition table and details regarding the boot indicator, the type descriptor and the drive size in the designated section of the application.
WinSDCard can extract the content of the SD card and write it to an IMG raw image file. The process can be monitored in real-time and you can view the copying speed and the remaining time until the job is finished.
In case of data loss from your memory card, WinSDCard can be used for copying an existing backup to the removable storage medium. Furthermore, if the stored data on the card is corrupted or you cannot access it anymore, there is a 'Format' function that enables you to completely erase all the information. It is advisable that you always perform this operation before copying a backup image to the removable device.
Creating backups of your data is a task that you should perform on a regular basis, in order to avoid the unpleasant situation when you lose important documents or photo collections. WinSDCard is a tool that can give you a helping hand in this matter, cloning your memory card and enabling you to restore its contents.
