How to Recover an Image Backup in Windows with DiscWizard
If your system fails completely, you will need to do what is called a system recovery (also known as System Restore). This process calls for reloading the operating system, programs and restoring the data. With the aid of disaster recovery software like DiscWizard you can restore an image backup (.TIB file) that is stored on a backup drive.
- An image backup created with DiscWizard can only be restored to the exact same computer on which it was created.
- Open the DiscWizard software and click on the Backup selection.
- Select the backup you want to restore and click on Recovery at the top right of the window.
Note: If you do not see your backup listed here, click the arrow next to Add Backup at the bottom of the window and select Add existing backup.
- The software will display the files that were backed up previously. To do an image restore, select the Recover disks button at the bottom of the window.
- Click on Disks near the top of the window and you will see the drive or drives that you backed up previously. Put a check mark next to the drive or drives you would like to recover, and then choose the destination you would like from the drop-down menu that appears.
- Click on Recover Now at the bottom right of the window to start the restore process. If the destination drive is not empty, a message displays, asking if you are sure it is OK to erase the drive. Click Yes to begin the restore process.
- A status bar will display the progress of the restore.
- A reboot may be required to complete the Image Restore.
- Once the image has been restored, verify that it was successful by booting from the Destination Disk to which it was restored.
