Assuming I have used Acronis True Image 2016 to create a full backup of a Windows 8 system drive using the file based backup function (i.e. not a drive image).
If now the system drive dies, is it possible to restore the system to a new hard drive (including partitions, filesystems, etc.) without reinstalling Windows?
Or is this only possible from a drive image?
Edit 1: Response to Ramhound: I am not backing up "specific files" but ALL files on the system drive.
Edit 2: The question basically boils down to:
When using Acronis True Image with the filesystem based backup function, does it also make copies of the partition table and boot section so as to allow restoring the filesystem from scratch?
