Why is it that when I am trying to restore a differential image, it will not let me just restore the differential image? It wants to restore the WHOLE image plus the differential...Am I missing something here? My setup is backing up a 300gb hard drive. I do a full once a week on Friday and a Differential Monday-Thursday or the same drive (based on the full backup). Now I have restore this drive on Tuesday (in full!) and figured today I would like to go and apply last nights differential to it to update it as of last night. The differential files is about 6gb. But when I choose restore and select wednesday nights differential file...It leads me through like I am doing a completely new restore from scratch..with the only two options being to delete existing partitions and restore the data or to do individual files and folders. Where is the option to where I can restore just my differential data? Or is the only way I can restore a differential file is to restore the full backup too? That would not make any sense.. I do NOT want to do either of these. All I want to do is restore the differential information which was back up last night. From my experience in the past a 6 gb file does not take an extremely long time to restore (may an hour or so?) and I should be back in business...but I cannot get this to work What am I doing wrong / missing in this whole process? thank you for any help provided!
