I have also just fromated disk and rebooted the computer from the 1st back up disk, nrestore runs, backsup all the disks but I can't get the hd to boot or am I able to use any of the files that have been restored!
The option I believe I used was to restore the whole hd, programs and files! and yes I have allowed it to reinstall the boot sector and it won't boot from that,
I'm using version 1.03
any help you can...kevin
Ok, so you did a Hard Drive Backup. Then you can not restore from Windows or any other system. You must do as you indicated at the end where you boot to the First disc and do a sector by sector restore.
But you are getting no error messages, unlike 'Plec', your restore is succesful in that sense. But when you try and boot, it fails to boot to the disc. If you boot to a DOS Floppy, do you see all the files restored to your Hard Drive? Just wondering if the data is there, but the bootsector is not. Because of the data is there, and easy way to recover your files would be to reinstall Windows over your 'existing' version. You would loose all presets and programs, but your data will not be lost and will be accesable and you can reinstall your programs. Otherwise, we may have to have you send me copies of your originals so I can see what is going on as well, just like Peter.
