Windows 7: Can't image restore

27 Jun 2010   #1

Can't image restore

I don't know if this the correct section for restore questions but here goes

I do an image backup using the following command in a batch file...WBADMIN START BACKUP -backupTarget: -include:c: -quiet
cd /D D:\
if exist Windows* move Windows* "%date:/=.%"W7

... and the scheduler.

NOTE that I am renaming the image folder from "WindowsImageBackup" to a name with the date. This disallows overwriting and identifies the Image.
My problem is when I attempt a RESTORE of the image from either
the "Start......Contol Pnl......Backup & Restore" or the Repair Disk the backups are not found nor can I access the backup drive D:.
I have tried this with the image using the native name, "WindowsImageBackup" with the same results.
Anybody got any ideas?

BIOS data concerning HD's in question.

System Drive C:
Sata1 WDC WD800AAJS00 WD
PI Mode=4
Async DMA = Multiword DMA-2
SMART = Supported
LBA/LARGE Mode = Auto
PI Mode = Auto
DMA Mode = Auto
Smart Monitoring = Auto
32 bit Data Transfer = Enabled

Backup Drive D:
Sata2 WD WD3200AAKS-22B
(all other data same as above)
