Partition or Volume Restore

October 21, 2019

This function can help to restore partition or volume. If the data on the partition has been damaged or lost, the backed up image file can be used to restore partition/volume to the normal state.

This feature is used to restore a particular partition or volume. If the data on the partition is damaged, you can quickly restore it to the normal state with the backed up image file.

  1. In the left tab page, select Restore-->Select Task. From the listed backup tasks select one that you want to restore. Click Next to continue.

  2. Select Backup
  3. In this page, AOMEI Backupper lists the partitions or volumes contained in this image file. Select a backup point and one of the partitions you want to restore, then click Next to continue.

  4. Select Item
  5. Select a destination partition, which can be an existing partition or an unallocated space. Click Next.

  6. Select Destination
  7. 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 Partition". Other options "Sector by sector restore" and "SSD Alignment" are also available.

Tips:
  • If you regularly backup 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 important data, it should first be copied to another location.

  • If any applications are running on the destination partition/disk, AOMEI Backupper will require you to restart computer and execute the restore operation in "Restart Mode".
