Multi partition restore to one disc RRS feed

  • Question

  • Okay, I have a system with one disc and 2 partitions on it.  I made a backup to the WHS and it seems to have stored the 2 partitions. But, when I go to restore, it will let me only choose one, and it restores to the entire disc.  I need to be able to restore them both?  Have not been able to find if this is or is not possible with WHS.

  • You can restore both partitions. The disk you want to restore to should have at least the number of partitions you want to restore. Also you can only restore a to a partition which is similar or larger in size then the original partition. You can use the disk manager on the WHS restore disk to create the partitions prior to restoring.

  • I will give this a try.  I have never thought about pre partition a disc before a restore.  Will let you know.

    Thanks
