R-Drive Image startup disk


Is the R-Drive Image startup disk generic, or is it tailored to the same machine its created on. For example, could I create a startup disk on machine "A" and perform a restore on machine "B" .

R-Drive Image recovery disc and mapped network drives

I am having a small issue with R-Drive Image. I have used the product for many years, but I only really use the R-Drive Image recovery disc. I generate recovery images for my servers/workstations, and in one environment I create/restore these via a mapped network drive. I successfully did this using a 6.0 version back in Feb 2017. I am now using 6102 (I know there are newer versions available, but I'm not positive this ...

Automatic mount / unmount


I am currently testing the trail version of R Drive and I wanted to see if its possible to schedule a daily backup which first mounts a windows network share - does the backup to this share and then unmounts once its finishes.

The reason is I want to protect from a ransomware attack, if I go down the removable / external HD route then its adding a barrier to my automatic backups.

Cheers ...

Error when copying with r-drive, corrupted image

Good morning, I downloaded the latest version of R-drive, a week ago
The copy performs well but fails the verification.

I made a CHKDSK on the local disk, with no apparent errors
I check ignore bad sectors and perform copy now, but fails.
I've check the event viewer without seeing anything strange
The error that I receive by email is the following:

R-Drive Image - Exclude Folders?

I am looking for something that can make a restorable image of a system partition (the system partition uses the entire disk) that allows the user to select folders that will be excluded from the image.

Can R-Drive Image do this?

Thank you.

Can I use V4 to clone and downsize to an SSD?

Hi, I've had a copy of V4 for years now, I haven't needed it recently but I now want to put an SSD into an HP 4535. It's currently got a 570Gb C partition, a 20Gb HP_Recovery partition and a 5Gb HP_Tools partition. The C drive is only using about 100Gb so I can safely get away with a 500Gb (or even 250!) if I can use R-Drive to clone everything (including any hidden partitions) ...
