Version 1.8.6
FileWave Imaging

Included in the Installer

  • Lightning
  • Compatibility

    ↓  Host Machine

    ↓  Target Machine

    Additional Information

    Lightning works over

    • Thunderbolt (one and two)
    • USB (all versions)
    • FireWire (800 and 400)
    • eSATA
    • and on internal drive (SATA, ATA, etc)

    If you can mount the drive as read/write, you are more than likely going to be able to image it with Lightning.

    Changes in this version

    Fixed an issue where enabling FileVault on machines imaged with Lightning and macOS Sierra image could cause problems with booting operating system. Please keep in mind that every macOS Sierra image that is used in this particular deployment scenario needs to be recreated with the newest Lightning version.


    Run Lightning in the OS environment you are making an image for. If making a macOS 10.12 image, run Lightning on your newest hardware machine running macOS 10.12.
