    Running win7 x64
    2 HD's

    archive of boot drive (NTFS) created with normal compression

    boot drive archive is located on a separate drive (NTFS)

    I start the differential backup - browse to the archive - select the PBF file and when I select next I get ...

    Invalid partition data - partition control blocks information incompatible

    Error source: Hard Disk Manager
    Error code: 0x10014

    all I have done from the basic install was to add apps etc and AV etc.
    Not sure what to do.. or where to look

    Kind regards

    Stephen

    Re: differential backup 10.2 free - error (updated)

    I found for some reason, that I am unaware of, that the DISK MAP feature shows my second drive as "basic hard drive 0" and my original drive (the boot system drive) is now shown as "basic hard drive 1" so when I want to do a differential backup it will fail. Why did the disk map flip and how to change it back or am I out of luck here?

    regards
    Stephen

    Did it?

    What does windows disk management say?

    Disk manager has Disk 0 as the second drive and Disk 1 as the boot - this is opposite to when I did the initial install of Paragon backup - which showed Disk 0 as the boot and 2nd drive as disk 1 now the Paragon disk view shows them the same as in Windows Disk manager - where as in the beginning they didn't. I have done 2 complete re-installs and this has happened both times - this means that 1) I can't do a differential backup on my original backup and 2) does this mean if I want to restore the original image onto the boot drive I can't because the archive thinks that it is disk0 when currently it is drive1?

    Regards

    You can restore an archive image to any partition you like.

    Never seen that change of Disk numbering before.

    Thank you, this means however that I think that I will be required to only create 'full' archives as I will not be able to create differential types..

    I have found reference to disk # switching..
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/937251,

    not sure what it means, or why only some uses may see this and other not..

    Here I thought that that my image archive solution was done and I could just use my system - now I wonder if my archives are and will be usable down the road. PC what a pain...:D
