System image restore on empty external drive I made a system backup of my C:
system partition with Windows 7
backup and restore facility on an
Now I bought another external disk
and wanted to restore my backup to it to test the restoration on
an empty disk ( for the case of disk crash or when buying a new SSD and
adding it to the computer ).
When I boot from the Recovery CD
and try to restore the image I can exclude my current system disk and keep only the external target disk. But then I get an error message, which tells me that the
restoration misses a disk. I suppose the excluded C:-system disk.
So is there a way to restore the
image to a disk other than the current disk with the running C:-system ?
