    I have an old image of my basic W2000 setup drive.
    I want to retore it to a new drive.
    My current W2000 is getting flaky and I want to start over.
    In the source part of retore it is easy to select the TIB file.
    When it comes to the destination there is only one choice shown.
    That is the original drive it came from.
    How do I select the drive I really want to put the image back on?
    The drive shows up in the list of drives where I pick the TIB file drive.

    I have noticed that a new disk needs to be formatted in order for acronis to recognize it as a destination. Don't know why since it's just going to wipe out the formatting anyway but it does. Don't know if this is always the case, just thought I would let you know that if it is brand new drive you might try this.

    Hi, patwhatsthat

    I must say I am sorry? but that is incorrect, the HDD does not [Should not be formatted] have to be formatted, if it is formatted Ti will need to delete the Partition before it can do a restore.

    Is the HDD you are selecting big enough to restore to?

    Take Care,

    Thanks for setting me straight. At my age the memory is frequently inaccurate. It was just something I thought I had noticed once upon a time. Thanks again

    The problem is not the size of the drive.
    The problem is that the drive I want to load the backup to does not show up in the list of drives to restore to.
    The only drive that shows up is the drive that was originally backed up.
    There are 10 partitions on this computer.
    I would like them to all show up so I have a choice of where to restore my TIB to.
