    just want to check if i did this right.

    after a clean install, updates, 80 % of my programs i did a acronis image.

    i divided it into 4400MB, so it was image1.tib and image2.tib.

    i transferred them to my other partition on primary hd from an external hd.

    i checked them, then ran acronis from windows and selected acronis to reboot.

    it rebooted into acronis, the same as the rescue cd. I selected image1.tib, and after 16 min it was restored and i rebooted.

    it all seems fine, and i recovered from a conflicting software i installed the other day.

    so by selecting just the first image, it also restores image2.tib?

    and i forgot to check for integrity after imaging, so i dont know.

    Yes, selecting any part of a multipart backup image will restore (or mount for Exploring) the entire image.

    After you have restored the image, there's no check that it was right. Just use your regular tools such as CHKDSK or ErrorChecking to show that the hard drive has no errors.

    thanks, running CHKDSK now.

    hehe, didnt now i had use for the new image after only a couple of days..

    instead of spending hours of troubleshhoting a software program and conflicts, i just used the image. then transferred all my files and folders etc from my other backups used by nero backitup (1 a week) and the acronis image i did before zeroing and reinstall. (that was 16 G)

    strange how many useless programs etc mounts up after months of work
