GPT restore problem

Hi Mart Thanks for the information, I should have enough now to recreate the problem. This may be of interest, but I want to upgrade a GPT booting PC to an SSD in any case. I think you mean EFI boot partition rather than GPT? and as you stated I also think that it should be allowed to create an EFI ...

Transfer to SSD

There is a lot more information about this issue in our email conversation August 2013 subject "Drives over 2TB". Of special note is the following I wrote on 18/8: The problem occurs when the destination partitions haven't been assigned drive letters. AISBackup creates folders on the correct destin...

Installed BCD on a replacement tablet / PC

If you were to restore the 'C' partition following a disaster you would be able to use the BCD that ships with the new tablet. The BCD only holds the boot files. However I would recommend making the restore to a new partition initially and making a dual boot system, but this may prove difficult if d...

VSS

I guess VSS started correctly to backup the open exclusive files on the other partitions, especially the 'C' drive. Actually it's not possible to use VSS on the FAT32 EFI partition and AISBackup works on desktop / laptop PCs when backing up the BDC files AISBackup uses BDCEdit to back up the BDC dat...

VSS

I think the VSS service should be set to 'manual'.

Something else that appears to be contradictory is that EFI booting is only supposed to boot 64-bit versions of Windows.

What happens if you remove the FAT32 'SYSTEM' disk from the backup?

AISBackup hang

I guess you are using the latest version of AISBackup? This is version 3.3 build 446. I think the problem may be with the 64-bit open file support module failing to initialise correctly and there may be a message in the Windows Application or System event log that gives more information. If there is...

AISBackup backup choices

The statement 'Recommended for disaster recovery' on each drive may be misleading as this only indicates the selected partition may be restored in the event of a disaster. For full disaster recovery it is best to use the 'Backup the PC' option. As for booting the PC or laptop in the event of a disas...

Registering AISBackup

It's the AISBackup.key file used to register AISBackup.

Make sure AISBackup is not already running when double clicking.

Work around........

Maybe this is the first time an entire disk drive was excluded – you found a bug, but the work around is easy:

Right click G:\ in the left hand pane and choose Remove from exclusions. Double click Computer to shrink the list, Press F5.

Restoring Windows XP to make a dual boot PC

n Windows since 95, 98 and ME drive letters are logical and not fixed as they used to be. If you restore Windows XP to the D: drive and view the drive from Windows 8.1 it will be seen as the ‘D:’ drive. However it you then set-up a dual boot system to boot into Windows XP the Windows XP partition wi...

AISBackup Build 444

Build 444 includes a new option to change the backup file extension on disk and network backups.

This is available as a pre-release at the moment and if all works okay will be transferred as the next release of AISBackup.
