I have a single HDD with two partitions: C and D. I am running Windows 7 64 bit pro. The system and all the files are on C partition. I can successfully create an Image backup and store it on D. I can then restore the system using the Windows installation DVD and everything works well.
When I use the same DVD to format C: and try to restore everything from D: it does not work. The backup folders on D: are not visible. Why is this the case and why can't I format the C: prior to restoring the system from WindowsImageBackup folder?
