A disk image is a precise replica of a certain hard disk. Making a complete backup of the hard drive with Windows installed is referred to as creating a disk image on Windows 10 or Windows 11. This disk image can be used for disk migration or kept for data and disaster recovery.

To create a disk image on your Windows 10, you can use professional disk imaging software like EaseUS Todo Backup or Windows native backup tool - Backup and Restore (Windows 7).
