At present I cannot access my latest backup because of a network problem. I have had to replace my HD so in order to start again I had available a backup which was two years old. I have restored this successfully. What I want to know is can I restore the latest backup over the previous one with no resulting probnlems. My partitions are C main programmes D additional programmes E My own data and E backup I intend to restore each partition seperately. Are there any pitfalls?
