    Hi Shawn,
    It does appear that my other lost partition still exists. Neither Partition Wizard nor EASEUSE found it, but the adjunct to PW, Power Data Recovery utility, recognized the proper directory structure. It appears the contents are indeed intact. However, even though your tutorial said the utility is free, it is not for anything above 1 Gb. I will dig around, but I thought I would check with you if you know of other freeware that does not put a cap on the data recovery.

    Thanks for the help so far.

    Is there any way to determine size of originally imaged disk? A friend just handed me a computer with a new SSD and was hoping I could set it up for him using a WindowsImage that was made a few years ago of the original HDD. I'm assuming it was at least a 1TB drive while the SSD is 250GB. No matter what which process I use it fails at point of backup.

    Hello Golem, :)

    I'm not aware of a way to tell what the size of the hard drive was for a system image when it was created.

    You might see if you may be able to use the method in the tutorial below to restore the system image.

    Thanks for the reply Brink!

    Looks like a slick and relatively simple work-around, will give it a try.

    Image Restore timeframe


    I started an image restore yesterday using the above tutorial. Everything seemed to complete well. After 30 minutes, the image restore progressed to the end of the graphic. Then the message "Windows is restoring your computer from system image. This may take from a few minutes to a few hours. Restoring disk (C)..." started over a second time. This second (?) image restore is about 31% completed after 22 hours and 36 minutes. I calculate the image restore may be completed in 72 hours and 29 minutes from start. Why did the image restore restart and is progressing slowly?

    Hello Alan, :)

    If you had and corruption or drive issues, that could account for why it may take so long to complete.

    Thanks Brink. I have moved this post to backup and restore section. I will check the system image for corruption.

    Hello Shawn I am considering reinstalling 7 on my main desktop because it keeps dropping out long posts back to the forum, opening new tabs in the middle of typing an email and sending it to Drafts plus a lot of extremely irritating things. I find myself having to type a reply like this post/reply in Word and then copy paste very quickly into the forum.

    I have tried just about everything I can think of sfc, chkdsk, reinstalling Chrome – including resetting that as John suggested, many malware scans including the Kaspersky rescue disk, keeping the clutter down with CCleaner even down to reseating gear and making sure the inside is clean checked the PSU drivers etc etc ad nauseum and nothing works.

    So my concern is that I have an image of the machine but am thinking if it is something to do with the programs OS or what am I going to be putting back what the dickens it is that s driving me nuts because it is something to do with this machine and my others are all ok.
    So unless you have any suggestions I will do a clean install probably not using the image. .

    Edit: The one thing I haven't done is hard drive test (Samsung 500GB 850 EVO)
