    Lost my Recovery disk, backup is 2 years old, but close enough.
    Attempting to restore to new larger hdd. Keeps restoring under a folder 'disk_C' on the new hard drive.
    The old one, the drive c volume name was disk_C, so why is it doing this, why can't I get the files to restore relative to the root instead of this 'folder'? There are not many options to pick from, I chose specific and picked drive C, yet it restores to this folder.

    That destination location sounds like one is trying to recover files not restoring a backup.

    It's restoring the file, just to a new a folder called 'disk_C' under the root of drive C on the new drive.

    Are you restoring an image from the newer PVHD or older file archive method? Does it boot up showing your larger HD?

    When one just recovers files from an PVHD or archive, Paragon will either copy them back to its original location or another location the you select. If you select another location it always creates a folder called "disk_C" with the files within and that's why I'm asking. It might be something about going to the larger HD and I've never did this.

    I think I got it figured out and working now. I have several archives and they back up 2 separate drives and a third which is a 'Complex' archive. When selecting from the individual archive for the particular drive it wanted to restore to original path of F: which is wrong, I need C:, but another location gave me the folder. I finally tried the Complex archive and from the sub for C and the confusing path was it said the original path was F: but it was redirecting to C:, either way, it's restoring to where I need it to.

    My own fault for not making sure the backup was running, got complacent and paying the price. Simply shut the system down no indicators of problems to come and the drive wouldn't spin back up.
