I'm so used to using the original Ghost 15 that now that I have Symantec System Recovery 2013 R2 I'm a little confused.
When I backed up using Ghost I would see three partitions..... C drive, System and D drive
When I backed up my W8.1 machine, the R2 creates three v2i files
I'm not sure as to which file is which.
Please correct me if I'm wrong...
If I need to just recover C drive, do I use #1?
If I need to recover the entire platter, do I use #3?
2 and 3 are related partitions such as MSR and WinRE. The following may help to explain better:
If you need to recover the machine, you would need to restore all 3 partitions.
Hope this helps.
Thank you, Chris. I will read both articles. But before I do....
After I booted to the recovery disk, I attempted to click on all three items so that they were all checked. The software only allowed me to leave one item checked. So...
Questions: Do need to recover each item individually? I can't do them all at the same time?
Please refer to the Symantec article I mentioned above.
Take a look at the section for restoring. You will see that if you select 'System' from the drop-down menu, this allows you to select the system index file. This will ensure that all partitions that were backed up will be restored.
All I do is use "control" and highlight all partitions that I need to recover. Eg., on my multi boot machine I backup by highlighting C:,D:, E: and F: and when I recover choose the recovery point and highlight all partitions and SSR will recover them in order.
