Is it possible to restore a Paragon backup when its on a HDD?

I need to restore my system & have the Paragon backup on my media HDD.

Its a 32.2g file & my largest memory stick is 16g

I dont have any DVD's to burn anything to...

I'd really like to do it via the HDD if possible.

Thanks.

You'll have to make the Paragon boot disk to boot to reimage from the same HD.

Walgreens has 5 CD's or 3 DVD's good quality for $2 on wall near the photo dept.

ARrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr I was just there & meant to buy some but I forgot, damn it!

How can I make the boot disk boot to reimage from the HD?

Technically windows is currently on another HDD than the paragon back up is (its on my media HDD)

I guess I'm just going to run back up to walmart... its probably quickest/easiest to just burn the DVD.

The Paragon boot disk is made from within the program and is burned to a CD, not DVD.

Boot the Paragon CD, browse to the Paragon backup file, then where you want it restored. It will prompt you to delete the existing OS first. Have it copy the MBR and mark partition Active.

If it fails to start, you may need to boot the Win7 DVD Repair console or Repair CD to run Startup Repair a few times until it starts, making sure the new Win7 partition is marked Active.

I backed up a full image onto an external USB HD using Paragon's Backup & Recovery 10 Free Edition. If my W 7 system refuses to boot how do I access the backup so that I can restore the system from the image? Paragon's utility does not seem to provide a mechanism to boot up with.Thanks.
