Please share your practices and routines which you find most beneficial and completely reliable in FD-ISR in safely preserving your FD snapshots & archives without making mention of Imaging the drive/partition. For example, do you use the EXPORT/IMPORT feature and how dependable is it proven to your confidence since using this mega-recovery app? Do you save them also to USBflash storage drives? External Disks i'm sure some have. What about to DVD/CD's? Have you even gone as far as Copy/Paste manually to another drive the ARCHIVES in an effort to keep duplicate spares on hand in the event they for some reason might have been found corrupted or deleted by accident. Maybe someone is blindly used a RegCleaner that killed references to them on a partition where they were safe but because of that a simple CHKDSK considered them as corrupt and therefore removable. (Thanks $M Grrr) The reason for this topic in case you're interested is i recently taken the precaution (i think), to COPY archives over to BOTH a partition on the same drive and also alternate second drive to preserve these in case of emergency. I made a new folder named Auxillary Snapshots on the same drive to a partition and noticed when i copied the archives MANUALLY via explorer, they lost their color BLUE in the new folder but still show up in the FD-ISR Options/Archives List. I even done Copy/Updates to them successfully w/o errors. This is probably an overreaction on my part but i have recently experienced a not so welcome surprise i never expected, like my archives being declared corrupted by the system tool CHKDSK after i used a RegCleaner. After it ran, then all my archives (7) were ruined except (2) and so had to rebuild them again.
