Drive Imaging & Backup FAQ

2. Do I need to create an initial whole image before using incremental backup?
4. Can I restore an image to a remote HDD?
5. I got the "Call Back" error when tried to create an image. What does that error mean?
6. I run Windows XP and Susie Linux 9 as a dual-boot system. Is it possible to Disk to Disk copy the entire HDD?
7. I tried to read an arc file by both Nero Burning Rom and UltraISO, but failed. It seems that these software do not recognize your file format (arc file). Can you please give me an advice which software can burn the arc files?
8. Can I burn a created *.arc file on CD/DVD and then write the R-Drive Image startup version on this disc, too?
9. Is there a way to check the integrity of an arc file through the command line?
10. I tried to start my system from a startup R-Drive Image CD/DVD. My computer shows "linux `uncompressing... OK starting the kernel` Then it stops. Sometime it even powers off. What should I do?
12. I need to access outlook ost/pst files in the Documents and Settings folder of a disk image connected as a Virtual Logical disk. When I attempt to do so I get an Access denied Error upon clicking the Documents and Settings folder.
13. Is it possible to turn off PC after making an image/copy?
14. Will R-Drive Image work on MS Small Business server?
16. I want to restore an image of disk C: into disk C: under a Virtual Machine. Can it be done?
17. We are trying to perform a weekly full backup and a daily incremental backup in the unattended mode. When it is necessary, the restore process must be in unattended mode, too. Therefore restarting from a startup CD/DVD is not an option. I have a question on the name of the backup image file. When a scheduled task creates an image file the date and time is part of the file name. If I have to perform a restore from the backup image file, do I have to specify the image file name with the date and time values? If I have to, then this creates a problem in restoring in the unattended mode script. It is because the script will not know the date and time of the last backup.
