Recovering more than one partition at once
To recover an image of a hard disk containing two or more partitions to another hard disk drive, use the following procedure:
- Click the Recover button on the backup box of a disk containing several partitions.
- Select a partition to recover in the Disk Recovery window. This will open the recovery destination field below the partition label.
- Click the down arrow to the right of the field and select the destination hard disk. The partition to be recovered will then be placed on the selected hard disk. It occupies all the available disk space. To change the partition properties, click the Partition properties link below the recovery destination field.
- To reduce the partition size so as to leave enough disk space for the remaining partitions, click the Reduce size link.
- You can resize the partition by dragging its right border with a mouse on the horizontal bar on the screen. To assign the partition a specific size, enter the appropriate number into the Total size field. Remember that you need to leave as much unallocated (free) space after the newly resized partition as will be needed for the remaining partitions. Select a disk letter and partition type. When you finish the settings, click OK to confirm them and return to the main Disk Recovery window.
You can also place the unallocated space before the partition by selecting the Before partition radio button.
- Select the next partition’s check box.
- Select the unallocated space on the destination hard disk. The program will create a partition occupying the entire unallocated space.
- Make the settings for the second partition. Leave enough unallocated space for other partitions to be recovered.
- Select the next partition, etc.
- Repeat the above actions until you handle all partitions in the backup.
- Click Recover now to recover all partitions to the destination hard disk.
