Ya. I should have.
My rank was zero, I think - when I submitted this program. :-)

This looks really interesting. Anyone testing it, by chance?

I'd be particularly interested in knowing if it creates a VDI or VHD out a regular Windows setup.

EDIT: Well, I went searching and found this info in the official site -- not a full answer, but it's a start because you can create a VHD yourself in Windows "Disk Management" (Win+R, "diskmgmt.msc" without quotes), attach it, format it and set it as the target disk afterwards.


But DiskGenius official download source is very, very slow (~80m for 36MB!), so any alternatives will be more than welcome.

Quick peek with Exeinfo PE reveals DG 64-bit Lite is packed/encrypted with VMProtect (from https://vmpsoft.com/), so resource hacking is a no go...

Moreover, I'd be wary of relying on similar software for mission critical systems, as such proprietary obfuscation opens the door to all sorts of potential malfeasance -- even if perhaps less polished, there are plenty of FLOSS alternatives.

They can be an inconvenient hazard, that's for sure -- as time goes by and hands get less steady, unwanted clicks become a given and online giants aren't the safest destination for them.

I'll have a look at the topic. Meanwhile, Exeinfo PE official sources are http://www.exeinfo.xn.pl & http://www.exeinfo.o7.pl (redirector), where the project is marked active as of 2022-08-22 and latest version is v0.0.7.2.

Softpedia has a slightly older v0.0.6.9, released c. 2022-04-26:
