    I have been trying to use the recovery media to restore a partition using HDM12. My system is compose of a main 250G SSD, 2 additional SATA drives, 1TB USB external drive, and recover media on USB Thumb drive. Windows 7, all MS updates.

    When booting off the USB Thumb Drive, I get the above error for ALL three drives. If I ignore all errors, HDM12 starts and indicates all drives are free, no partitions are found. All the drives have 1 or 2 partitions and my system works perfectly well and is completely stable, e.g. no blue screens in years.

    If I ignore all errors and reboot offthe SSD, everything works perfectly.

    I have already tried CHKDSK on all drives
    I have rebuilt the recover media
    I rebuilt the Backup Partition
    I have checked other forums and can't find applicable issues.

    At this point, if I had to do a disaster restore, I would not be able to recover my backups which are stored on one of the internal drives or the archive have on an external 1TB backup.

    I don't know how to proceed or what logs might be available to troubleshoot.
    Please advise on how to proceed.
