I've used quite a lot of programs for imaging like Acronis, Easus, Macrium and all of them refer to the backup result or process as imaging and the result is an image. With Paragon backup it's backup to virtual disk and the result is a folder which multiple files with incremental numbers. All other programs create one "image file" and now I get multiple. My posting really is to ask if what Paragon backup does is the same as the imaging with the other programs. Is a disk image the same as a virtual backup? I'd appreciate some enlightening.
