Can't Restore Drive Backup

vbimport

#1

Hello
I had to do a reformat and chose to use backitup/drive backup option to save my storage files.
Now that I am ready to restore the files it won’t work. :a
I click on the nrestore.exe and it will tell me disk failure or time out.
This is after I ignore it telling me an application has tried to access the hard disk and to close it.
Does anyone have any knowledge on what my next steps could be so I can restore my files?
I would appreciate any assistance with this.
If it helps, I use XP w/ SP2

Thanks
Karry

hello, I wass having the same problem. I emailed nero and recieved this reply. (Note: I have not tried this process yet and therefore cannot varify if it works)

"Boot your PC in DOS-Mode in order to be able to restore a drive backup.
Please use herefore the first disc of the created backup.
Ensure that you have set your Bios boot sequence correctly (The CD/DVD
drive in which you insert the first Backup-disc has to be the first
boot device).

While booting your system you will get the options below:

1.) Boot with the maximum available virtual memory (in this case your
PC will only load the most important and essential drivers)
2.) Boot with all available drivers from the disc

We suggest to select the first option otherwise it could cause problems
during the restore process.
Afterwards the user-interface of Nrestore will be loaded.
You will now see the connected drives (e.g. CD-/DVD-ROM drives and
partitions. Floppy drives won’t be shown.)

Now you have to select the physical hard disc drive (“HDD”) on which
you want to restore the backup.

Possibility 1: Restore of a complete HDD:

If you have created a back up of a complete HDD you could just select a
HDD and start the backup (You don’t get any other options in this case)
E.G. you can just press the “Enter”-button several times and you will
be led through the restore process automatically.

Possibility 2: Restore of a partition

If you have created a backup of a partition you first will have to
select the HDD and then the partition (or an unpartitioned area) on
this HDD on which you want to restore the backup.

Please note:
The partition or the unpartitioned area you select as destination has
to be at least as large as the partition you want to restore.

If your partition is too small you will have to create an appropriate
unpartitioned area.

If you are restoring from DVD, you will see during the process that the
progress bar runs to 100% and then begins again. This will be done for
each existing DAT file on your DVD - up to seven times per DVD.
(Because of FAT restrictions the DAT files can have a maximum size of
650 MB.)"
