Backing up Pagefile and others


I've been using R-Drive image for a number of years and have been overall happy.

However, when trying the product in a windows 10 PC, it seems that it is backing up the pagefile, swapfile and hybernation file, even if only the Windows Snapshot provider is chosen and also in the differential and incremental modes.

This produces huge files, totally unsuitable for my purposes.

Is there anything to be done ?

Thank you

Hyper-V guest backup & restore from withing guest?

Hello! I was wanting to move a couple Hyper-V virtual machines from a Windows 2008R2 Hyper-V host to a Windows 2012R2 Hyper-V host.

- I am able to see the drive to restore and the ...

Cannot access folders of a mounted image (on another PC)


I am encountering again this issue, this time with no workaround so far. I have created an image of a Win 7 PC (system+data). When I mount the image on another PC (Win 8.1 and also Win 10 on a third PC), I cannot enter the C:\Users Folder. Formerly, using XYplorer or Total Commander in admin mode solved this, but not this time.

Is there a workaround ? I have no longer access to ...

Execute Batch files before and after a backup job


we are just evaluating the r-drive image and have one last problem: We want to store the images on a network share.

For the moment (we think) it is not possible to set a target on a share (i.e. \\server\sharename) and provide the username and password information. OK, so we tried to map the network to local drive via net use x: \user... This works so far, but we want to execute a batch ...

Need Help with a very old .rdr file

I have an 18GB file with the extension .rdr I am assuming this is a back up image file. It was made in June of 2013 on a computer we no longer have. It was a lenovo computer that was probably Win7 but possibly win8. Some files on this lost computer have recently become important. Would the R-TT software be able to open this file and could we be able to selectively retrieve files. Any ...

Checking image files

it seems consistency check is only available in CLI mode. But I have a question regarding what it really does.

I have a set of image file
Y700-HDD_20160508_202947_n.rdr ; n=1 to 6, #1 is a full backup, #2 to #6 are incremental ones

If I create a script containing
check -a Y700-HDD_20160508_202947_6.rdr

Will it check just the #6 file or all files from 1 to 6 ?

It would be nice too if check ...
