I now have 2 320 Gb Sata hard drives on DellP4 w/XP. Call them C for main drive put in as replacement for failed drive; S for second identical drive and also have F, a USB drive with images. I have never restored from an image and want to practice by restoring to S and then changing boot order in the BIOS to boot from restored image on S. I have already done a fresh install on C and am booting normally from it now. Using TI9, build 3667, and restoring from within Windows. Two things make me hesitate: 1. "Please select a partition or a whole hard disk drive to restore. " I'm offered one choice: " Disk 1 - NTFS (C) MBR and Track 0 " I trust this refers to the image of C on F but it seems unclear. Should I select both "NTFS (C)" and "MBR and Track 0 " ? 2. " Please select a destination hard disk drive to restore the hard disk drive image. The hard disk drives already restored are disabled. The destination hard disk drives without enough space for restoring an image are disabled as well." I select S (identified on this screen as disk 2 ) and the next screen says " The destination hard disk drive you have chosen contains some partitions that could contain useful data. Hard disk drive image restoring is possible only if the destination hard disk drive is empty." This hard drive should not have any partitions or data - it is virgin. I have not proceeded past this. Is this a false statement by TI or something here i'm not aware of? I've already had some help on an earlier thread but it's probably stale by now: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=156525 Thanks to anyone for any clarifications here. Brian S.
