Restoring M.I.R. automatically
M.I.R. of O&O DiskImage is available to you when restoring system partitions from an image or when cloning. Meant is the direct selection of the system partition or the indirect selection, e.g. the entire disk including the system partition.
You only need to enable the function M.I.R. whenever you want to restore or clone before the restoration or cloning process is completed. The automatic adaptation will do the rest.
For the restoration on different hardware proceed as follows: The example here describes a restoration from an image:
- To restore the entire system, which entails the system partition, you need to start your computer with the Bootmedium of O&O DiskImage and proceed with the restoration from there. To boot from the Bootmedium proceed as described in chapter Start directly from bootable disk.
- Click on the start page of O&O DiskImage on Drive restoration.
- O&O DiskImage, by default, will always go the place where the last image was saved. If the image file presented is not the one you want, browse through your drives and enter the path to the image file.
- Select the image file in the browser and click on Open.
- All drives contained in the image will then be displayed.
- Click the drive that you want to restore (“play back”).
- Then, select the target drive for restoration by checking the box next to it. You can either replace an existing drive or create a new one: for example, in an empty sector.
- Whenever you have specified all settings, click on Start drive restoration to start the restoration.
- To restore or clone you need to enable the setting Adapt to different hardware afterwards in the restoration or cloning dialog.
- Then follow the other dialog prompts and restart your computer after the successful restoration.
Important: During restoration, the image overwrites your selected drive with the data of the drive contained within the image. All data saved on the target drive is thereby lost and replaced by that of the image.
