My C (system) drive is only 40GB. I keep all my data files on a second internal hard drive D. For back-ups I have an external drive G with 250GB. My goal in using FDISR is to be able to recover by using snapshots stored on my external drive G. Specifically... ***The following summarizes what I THINK I understand about how to archive snapshots on external drive G, & use them to recover from a disaster NOT involving hard drive failure of C drive. ***I intend to use FDISR in "Alternating Daily Backups" (only 3 or 4 snapshots), as described in FDISR's Help file. NO data anchoring. (PS- All my drives are NTFS) PROCEDURE... 1- Make first snapshot. Call it Alpha. I presume FDISR will put this snapshot on Drive C and that it will be the *Active* one. Correct? 2- Make a second snapshot. Call it Omega. It is my plan to put Omega on drive G, NOT on drive C. RESULT: Alpha snapshot active on drive C. Omega snapshot archived on external drive G. QUESTION: Will FDISR put Omega snapshot directly onto external drive G, if I ask it to do so? IF NOT, then I will manually copy snapshot Omega from C to external drive G, & then delete snapshot Omega from Drive C. (Is doing this okay? I want to keep C as unfilled as possible.) RECOVERY (by using Omega snapshot residing on drive G) 1- Boot 2- Hit F1 to activate FDISR 3- Tell FDISR to copy Omega from external drive G to drive C (Will FDISR do that for me?) 4- Tell FDISR to boot Omega (make Omega the Active snapshot.) POOF! I'm back in busness, with Omega rolling merrily along. I hope! In words understandable by a computer-doofus (namely me), PLEASE tell me my mistakes, & offer feasible options for me to be able to restore from snapshots on an external drive.
