Disk Restore

If your disk is damaged causing data or partitions loss, or is physically damaged, you could fully restore your disk to the state of the latest backup.

To restore disk:

  1. In the left tab page, select Restore and from the list box choose the backup that you want to restore. Click Next to continue.
  2. Disk Restore
  3. Select a point-in-time and click the Next button. The Backup type and Created time helps determine the appropriate point in time.
  4. Select Time Point
  5. Select the disks/partitions in the image file that will be restored:

    Select Image

    • Clicking the Disk button will list the disks contained in this image. Select one of the disks to restore, and click Next to continue.
    • Clicking the Part button will list the partitions that contained in the image. Select one of the partitions, and click Next to continue.
  6. Select the Destination disk/partition to restore the selected disk/partition to, and then click Next.
  7. Destination
  8. Now, enter the "Operation Summary" page to preview the restore operation to be executed. If you want to adjust partitions, in the left bottom click "Edit partitions on the destination disk". Other choices - "Sector by sector restore" and "Align partition to optimize for SSD" are optional.

Tips:
  • If you regularly back up your disks, each backup will generate an image at a given time, so there may be multiple time points to choose from.
  • The destination disk/partition will be totally overwritten. If the destination contains any essential data, it should first be copied to another location.
  • If any applications are running on the destination partition/disk, AOMEI Backupper will require that you restart computer and will execute the restore operation in "Restart Mode".
