Image file (Nero)
Disk images are often used in disk backup programs as they do not lose the disk header information lost in a standard copy and paste. As such, they can be used to restore a disk’s information exactly as it had been.
If you come across an NRG file and do not have Nero it can be converted to the more common ISO format using NRG2ISO.
