    I went to restore an image and noticed that all the partitions except C was 1 letter off. I keep apps on E it was now D which is the CD drive. All the other partitions are off by 1 letter. F is now E. This size of the partition looks correct except the letter is different. This is the first time I have ever seen this. I was afraid to restore it. When I tried to create a new image the same results with the letter for the partitions. Thanks

    Are you seeing this letter change when you boot from the Rescue CD? If so this is normal as the Rescue CD is based on Linux.

    It is recommended to give your disks and partitions meaningful names so that you don't get confused when in the Linux environment

    The names are correct I did give them names, but this is the first time the drive letters changed and I didn't want to mess the restore up and not be able to boot. It is the same using the rescue disk. Is it safe to use? It won't mess up the drive letters? Thanks

    For the purposes of the restoration process - forget the drive letters.
