Ghost 14 - Recovering Multiple Partitions?
I cannot restore multiple partitions to a single physical drive using Ghost 14.
I have a laptop named MAX which has 1 physical drive with 3 partitions labeled C: D: E: respectively. MAX is running WinXP SP2.
I used Ghost 14 to create a backup of the entire drive as described in Chapter 6 "Backing up entire drives" of the User Guide.
Recovery points MAX.sv2i, MAX_C_Drive001.v2i, MAX_D_Drive001.v2i, MAX_E_Drive001.v2i were created and written to an external USB drive.
Then I attempted to recover entire drive as described in Chapter 14 "Recovering a computer" -
- Boot with the SRD
- Click on 'Recover My Computer' then 'Next'
- Select 'System' then 'Browse'
- Navigate to the USB drive, select the MAX.sv2i then 'Open' then 'Next'
- Error dialog pops up over the 'Recover Points to Restore' screen:
There are problems with some of the entries in the system index file.
Entry 1: Error EC950006: The destination is not valid.
Entry 2: Error EC950006: The destination is not valid.
Entry 3: Error EC950006: The destination is not valid.
Please select each entry with a problem and click on the Change button to resolve.
- Click on 'OK'
- In the 'Recover Points to Restore' screen, each .v2i file is listed but the Target drive for each is "Invalid".
- When I select any the .v2i files then click on 'Change' then 'Next', I get another Error dialog:
Error EC95000F: Enter a valid recovery point filename to continue.
Error E0BB00B2: The image file file://..../MAX*.v2i has already been opened.
At this point I just hit 'Cancel'.
Restarting and selecting 'Filename' instead of 'System', I can restore each of the partitions separately but they just overwrite the previous restore instead of creating a new partition.
So ... how do you restore multiple partitions to a single physical drive?
