    I just imaged (with True Image 7) the 4 partitions on a new laptop. Everything seemed to go well, however, I tried to restore one of the partitions just to be sure everything was working properly. Two of the partitions are grayed out with the message they have already been restored (they haven't of course) or there is not enough room to do a restore. The two partitions in question are C and a hidden partition.

    What am I missing here? There does not seem to be any useful information for this problem in the online manual.

    Hi, peterdomo

    Welcome to Wilders.

    I am not sure what your question is?

    If C: is your OS Partition then that can not be restored under Windows.

    You should try the restoring test with the BootCD. [Make sure you make one if you have not already done so]

    Take Care,
    TheQuest :cool:
