Unable To Create Disaster Recovery CD


Recommended Posts

WHen I try to create a disaster recovery CD, I get a message saying the snapshot selected can't start a Windows computer, please select a Snapshot of a Windows startup volume and try again.


The drive I backed up is, in fact, my boot disk. It was recently added as an additional drive and made the boot disk at the same time. It is the master and my old hard drive is the slave. I know there are issues with using disaster recovery with XP SP2, but I can't even get past the first screen. I have been using Retrospect for several years, and I have been able to create the DR disk in the past.


Anyone have any ideas? TIA

I'm telling it to back up all files except cache files. That's the way I've always done backups. I don't think it is recognizing that it is the startup disk. When I look at the properties of the snapshot, it does not indicate startup disk, just a volume.


Is Retrospect 5.6.132 not able to create a DR disk under Windows XP?


Thanks for your help, Nate.
