Technical Details:
Popular and created to set up the Windows operating environment, WIM is an image file format designed to file data without duplication. In addition, it is a highly compressed file making the image 1/3 of its original size. The WIM format allows a single image to be set up on multiple platforms. The need to boot the operating system is eliminated for this type of format because it maintains files such as drivers and updates in the file itself. in addition, because disk image files contain exact copies, if needed, a computer can boot from this disk image format. Furthermore, WIM files can also be used for backup purposes. Unlike other disk imaging formats, the WIM format is file based as opposed to sector based.
