    Restoring an Image made of an SSD drive partition to a 3.5" internal SATA300 hard drive (Windows XP Pro 32 bit OS).

    When keeping the same size destination partition size, do I only need to select the following options?:

    1. Set Active.
    2. Restore First Track

    2KiB Align Option NOT used for the Restore.

    Thanks in Advance.

    Will the SSD remain in the system? Are you using BIBM in this system?

    Yes, but it is not connected. No.

    I am now thinking about just upgrading my Motherboard/CPU/Memory. If I do I will start with a new install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

    in Image for Linux i guess it would be possible to surf the file system using the Terminal. not sure.
    but that's too complex for me.

    the easiest thing i can think of is using TrueCrypt, which is included in within IFL.
    you could mount a volume which contain your password.
    but i'm not sure if IFL includes a text viewer/editor to view you password...
    ---------------------
    edit:
    after looking further into this i don't think it's possible.
    i don't see any way to launch a text editor from within IFL.
    perhaps someone more knowledgeable can confirm.

    acuariano,

    I never type anything or use the restore menus. This is what I use (among other methods)...

    http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/howto/howto-ifl-bootfile.htm

    You can have your password in the restore command line of the script. Naturally this only works if you can get into Windows but that applies to 99% of my restores.


    Edit.... You can also put your restore command line in this.

    http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/howto/tbwinre_tutorial.htm

    As you can put this on a USB flash drive you don't have to be in Windows to initiate a restore.

    Of interest (maybe only to me) I put both of the above in HD partitions so I can boot the restore from BIBM.


    You can do much the same with IFD in BIBM. Create a .tbs restore script.

    Or edit tbos.str on an IFD UFD. This is so easy.

    Lots of alternatives.

    the password.

    Yes, it is there.

    I think what I posted above is the easy way to do a restore but if you want a manual method...

    Boot IFL GUI
    Run through the Restore menus until you are asked for the password
    Minimize IFL

    Click mnt
    Select the partition that contains your password text file, OK, OK

    Click Editor (the pen)
    File, Open File
    Select mnt1
    In Filename type / so you have
    /tbu/mnt1/
    All the root files are visible. It's easiest if the text file is in the root otherwise keep doing the above until you find it
    Select the text file and click OK
    Highlight your password and press CTRL+C

    Bring up IFL
    Click in the Password field and press CTRL+V

    Minimize IFL

    Close the Editor
    Click mnt and unmount the partition

    Bring up IFL and continue

    Done!

    Hello,

    I am not 100% sure on this answer, but if I am wrong I am sure one of the experts will drop by and correct me. I believe as far as the restores are concerned, yes, the newer version is backwards compatible. On the other hand, they have made changes in the way differentials are handled and added incrementals as far as the backups go since then, so I believe you have to start off with a new full back-up before doing a differential or incremental. It is hard to remember back that far as to the versions... I remember they also made some changes to the compression options sometime back, but again not sure how that affects things either...

    things are backward compatible but forward compatible only to to a degree.

    like you suggest, creating a new base image is the safest way.
