Surface Pro 4

I was able to create an image for the Surface using 6.0 (Build 6008) but when I attempt to preform a restore to another Surface the destination drive does not appear. I can see my external where my images are stored and the external flash used to boot but no destination. Is there something I can do to get the destination drive to show up? Is this an issue with solid state drives or the ...

Backup and restore

I used to do a scheduled backup at midnight each day, this worked fine on windows 10 until the last 2 updates, when it stopped running as scheduled. I have tried to reschedule and run, but it still does not work. Is there any way of getting schedule to work?

Weird behaviour

Hi everyone,
After creating a rescue bootable USB, I've been able to clone both a MacBook Air and an old Toshiba L-300 without a single problem. However, I simply can't start up a late-2009 iMac using the same procedure. The screen turns black and the cursor starts endlessly blinking.

win10 not bootable after system restore, MBR missing

Hi Folks,

I'm testing out back and restore solutions to replace my Acronis solution which no longer works since I've upgraded my machine to windows 10.

Backups with r-drive are fine, full and incremental, scheduling, etc. Restore is restoring the partitions correctly but the MBR isn't being written and windows cannot boot. I see no option to fix this on the bootable CD. I've tried a normal restore and a "raw" disk restore.

I was ...

Process Failed

Hello, I keep getting the following error one each of my external backup drives when I run a job. Doesn't matter if the disk has been formatted, empty, or full. Same error appears.

ERROR: The system cannot find the file specified (2) while writing to F:\HDD1-image_20151104_091526_1.rdr

Drive letter does exist, and the disk is plugged in. Currently Running in Server 2012 R2, and schedule is set for daily (M-F) incremental backups.
