IMA extension files can acquire various applications depending on their format. Some of them are described below:
An IMA file extension, contains a disk image of a floppy disk, hard disk, CD, or virtual hard disk (VHD).
A disk image is a file or device that contains the entire structure and contents of a data storage device or medium, such as a hard disk, floppy disk, or optical disk.
A disk image is usually produced by creating a complete, sector-by-sector copy of the source media and thereby perfectly replicating the structure and contents of a storage device.
In this case, the IMA extension file is formatted to store the disk image as raw binary data that can be mounted by various disk utility programs, such as WinImage, Nero, UltraISO, and MagicISO, so that it can be read by a computer.
IMA files are typically created by WinImage, a disk imaging suite used to write, read, and edit disk images.
WinImage is a disk utility that allows users to create disk images from floppy disks, extract files from images, create blank images, and write images back to floppy disks.
WinImage also supports many standard and non-standard image file formats, including Microsoft's DMF format.
WinImage users can create the IMA file to store various types of disk images, however, most of the time, they create the IMA file to store a disk image of a 3.5" 1.44 MB floppy disk .
One of the features of WinImage, compared to IMA files, is that they can be compressed to save disk space.
In this case, compressed IMA files are created as IMZ files.
In this second case, the IMA file is an HTML compatible email message saved by ACT!.
Act! provides CRM and marketing automation in one software, so that you can market like a pro, turn leads into sales, and win raving fans for life.
Thus, the IMA file can contain an email message in plain text or HTML, and can also include one or more attachments.
The IMA format was introduced with ACT! 6.0.3 to replace the previous DET extension email format.
Unlike DET files, IMA files can include multiple attachments within a single file.
Also, IMA files contain standard HTML code that can be viewed in a web browser.
