I just tried the version that was released on 5/2 (6204) and it's still not working. I made an image and am still not able to restore it as the full drive image. The application won't let you select it.

I believe this bug will be fixed in the next build coming soon.

Thanks for your follow up!

The 6205 update released yesterday fixed the issue with the core storage image not being selectable. Now I can initiate a restore but the program hangs before it completes. It just sits at 93% at what looks like between two steps (right before the HFS+ recovery partition). I tried on 3 different images and it happens at the same spot every time when selecting "Copy partitions into their original places". I emailed the system dump files in and attempting a RAW sector copy now. That will take 3 hours so I won't have results on that until later.

The RAW results are interesting. It fails at 99% but OSX boots up fine. The reason for failing seems to be that R-Drive attempts to right the HFS+ recover sector twice. The picture attached shows the resulting partition structure after the RAW data copy.

Any update on this? This should be really easy for the testing department to replicate. Core storage was an advertised feature that still isn't working.
