I have just had a brain flop.. again..( rebooted and seems ok ) As i go further into this utility... If I use data anchoring between 2 or 3 snapshots and then If I keep an archive and keep it refreshed when I restore and boot into that archive will the anchored data be available? ANd: if a system gets corrupted, whats to say that the files in the anchored data will be intact? FD-ISR: "the fundamental interconnectedness of all things software." Thanks Lbd.
