Definition - What does Reimage mean?

Reimage is a disk recovery and backup procedure that enables the restoration of a complete hard disk drive (HDD). The process may be used to restore files, folders and even details of HDD sectors.

Techopedia explains Reimage

Reimage is the restoration of a HDD with its most recent or stable disk image. The reimage process is typically applied through disk imaging software, which routinely backs up all HDD data and stores it locally on the computer or a remote backup server. The disk data stored by this software may be retrieved in specified portions or completely as a disk image. When the primary disk data requires restoration, it is completely formatted and copied with the disk image that is maintained by the disk imaging software.

Reimage is the data image of a HDD, in contrast to an operating system (OS) image, which is used specifically for the creation of OS images.
