    Im using Active@ Disk image now. I created a backup few days ago. Today i tried to restore that backup to another external Hard disc. But during restoring steps it didnt show partitions of both hard discs and showed only two hard discs.After selecting hard disc it showed restoring will delete all partitions and data on that disc.
    I want to know ,is it possible to restore my backup to a partition other than Full hard disc??

    I have a question. Are you using dynamic disks? If so then youy cannot restore Active @ Disk Images files to them because they are not yet supported. The result will be what you are describing. But more information would be nice. Are you sure you have partitioned the second disk?

    If the 2nd disk was not partitioned then that means that's it RAW. There's nothing that can be done with that disk until you format it to a file system. Regarding Disk Image's inability to recognize the partitions on the first disk, verify that your disk are basic and not dynamic. As I said, Disk Image cannot restore to dynamic disks and will likely give an error like the one you encountered.
