Well I needed to do a bit of messing around with some old hardware and drivers
today. So I did a system image using the Windows 7 option in Backup and restore. As it turned out I ended up having to do a restore of the system image, not that I was expecting anything else.
Put it my repair disk booted up selected the image restore options and off it went. It did take a bit of time around 2 hours but all is back to what it was before I started.
The only thing I did not like is the fact taking so long it is a bit hard to actually know if the operation is still running or not. It does have the progress bar but you really need to watch that to see if progress is being made at all
