    My question is how do i restore my entire hardrive?
    A couple months ago a made a complete hardrive back-up with all my files on it and saved it to my other hardrive ( I have 2 ) in the archive form.

    Ok so i go to the archive tab and it says
    "Archive of Basic Hard Disk 1" This confuses me because the archive file is supposed to be for Hard Disk 0 and simply stored on HD1

    Then im confused on how to use the "Restore Wizard"

    The first step is to select an archive item to restore, so do i just explore the HD1 and select the .PBF file?


    Then i have another archive file for HD0 on HD1 that i made a month after the old one. When i choose to restore that archive, on the "select an archive item to restore" and go to my backup folder instead of just seeing the .PBF file i see every archive file ( about 40 3.9GB files)

    All i want to do is restore my HD but i have no idea how. o_O
    Any help is appreciated.

    Hard Disk 0 backup always shows disk "1" number.

    In Restore Wizard you can switch between file view \ archive view and between different archive kinds:

    When wizard is switched to File view, you can switch it back to Archives view or select what files to show: all files or Archive files only:

    Select the required archive and click Next.

    Then select entire hard drive (or desired partition) and click Next

    Select target Hard Disk (note: all data on target HDD will be wiped) and click Next
