    Hello,
    I know this has been answered already but I cant find it.

    If a backup is interrupted, say by a power outage or blue screen, do you have to start over?

    Thank you,
    JerryO

    i don't remember the exact situation but I believe when restarted it will restart from where it left off maybe with a prompt first.

    I thought I read somwhere on their site that it will restart but would I trust it?

    Short answer is a "definite no" for a blue screen which means something went completely off the rails in an unexpected manner. I can see a recovery being possible from a power failure but I personally wouldn't do it.

    Some users do everything from WinPE and in that case, it clearly wouldn't work. I've had a error during an restore from WinPE of course and it said that it needed to reboot! Naturally, after reaching 70%, it's going to reboot and work, not!!
