I created a back up on 12.21.2005 on a server 2003 with all the latest patches. the back up file is a little over 8 GB, the C partition is system partition and D partition is data, D drive has about 80 GB of free space. I backed up D partition to D partition and then transfered file to another Via FTP, FTP is not connected to internet for security but rather on the local network. When I try and "explore" image it wants to create a temp drive letter and I click next and it attempt to creave temp drive letter but fails. "cannot assign a drive letter to a partition from the image archive" is the message, I have even tried moving back up the C drive and exploring image but same error happens. I can however verify image without any issues. any idea's? I need to restore a single file but not entire partition. Help PLEASE!!!
