  1. Apologies if this topic is already in these forums or in the documentation. It seemed like it should already be covered. I tried searching, assuming it was a common topic, but I couldn't locate an answer: I lost a hard drive's partition information entirely, and rather than attempt to use a repair utility to try to rebuild the drive, I decided to restore all of the files to a fresh hard drive from the most recent backup. Once I recover the volume from backup, I want to put the recovered drive into service entirely replacing the corrupted drive. If I swap out the old drive with the new drive in Retrospect's backup scripts, will my next backup of the restored drive recognize that almost all of the files already exist in the recent backup (media set) and do only an incremental backup of the restored drive? Or will it try to do a complete backup of the restored drive?
