Is there a reason you want to restore the image you created?
Yes. The image was made from the C drive on my secondary PC (call it PC-2). I'm communicating to you now from my primary PC (call it PC-1).
PC-2 failed recently after I made the image of its healthy state. I want to revert to the healthy state using the image on my external drive. The failure occurred when I ran software that corrupted the registry. All my data is safe because it is on a second internal physical disk which is partitioned into two logical drives, D and E. I know my data is safe because I can boot the PC-2 machine into Safe Mode and view everything on my C, D, and E drives. I can even see my external disk which connects via USB.
I burned the Runtime Live CD, and booted into Knoppix. When I open DiskImage and select "Restore", I can see all my disks with correct size info listed in the first window, including the external drive which contains the image I want to restore from. Then, I select the C drive and click Next. A "drive restore wizard" opens, but it doesn't allow me to browse to the disk that contains the XML image. Instead, I am allowed to browse only what appears to be the Knoppix environment. It shows C, D, E, F, and Z drives, but they are all very small size and they contain files that appear to belong to the Knoppix system itself. None of the disks show any of the files which are on my Windows environment.
What step am I missing that will allow me to browse to the external drive?
When you get to the desktop you have to double click Assign drives and give your sdf1 external drive a logical drive letter in order for Drive Image XML to see the external drive as a drive letter.
Your comment probably answers my question. I'm trying to understand what you said. I do see the Knoppix desktop, but I don't see a way to assign drive letters.
When restoring I believe you do not assign a drive letter to your OS drive that you are restoring the image to
I think that's correct because I saw a similar comment in the Help file.
Thanks again for your help.
