Hello, I'm new to HDM Suite 15, but have so far: 1. Created both WinPE and Linux recovery media on Thumb drive, CD and USB drive 2. Created both full and incremental backups on my external USB Drive 3. Mounted these backups and extracted individual files. I have never restored a PC after a hard drive failure, but I think it is important to practice doing this before I do it for real, so I will feel a bit less panicky if I have to do it for real. This is my setup: 1. 2 single partition drives. Main drive with OS and data (Win 7 x64 sp1) is a 250GB SSD. Secondary drive is 1TB Hybrid HDD. 2. Motherboard is ASUS BIOS + uEFI My copy of Windows is OEM. I have altered my BIOS so it looks first for bootable USB. Can someone please describe (in very simple language!) the steps I should follow to test that I can do a restore? I do have an old 500GB SATA HDD which I can format and place in a USB cradle. Could I use this in the test process? Thanks for any advice!
