I am running Drive Backup Pro 9.0. I am trying to restore to a larger 500GB HDD outside of the PC from an external HDD. The image I previously created was for an entire 160GB HDD with 3 partitions; one primary NTFS boot, one extended NTFS, and one primary FAT32. I wanted to expand the boot partition and leave the other partitions their existing sizes. Only way I know of doing that is to restore each partiton individually. The disk restore only has the proportional option - is that correct? I tired to restore the boot partiton first after expanding size. It failed with an error message saying "cross linked files?" I think I selected the wrong partiton howeve. I think I selected the archive of the extended partiton. However, the files it restored were indeed from the boot drive? The archive is strange in that the boot drive archive is shown after the extended partiton archive? But the second archive shown has an earlier time and is definitely the boot drive archive. Anyway my questions. 1. The restore has to done positionally in reference to the old drive - is this correct? In my case, the boot drive first, the extended partition second, and the FAT32 position last. 2. Do I have to assign drive letters? I know the boot partiton was C: but I am not sure of the other two. 3. Will the boot drive partiton be automatically marked in the MBR of the new drive as active?
