Bare metal restore at 100% but appears hung


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how long a wait there may be after a bare metal restore reaches 100% before the screen indicates the job is complete?  After a half hour the *Stop* button is still enabled but I'm afraid to click it.  The device to which I am restoring is a Surface Pro 3 with Windows 8.1.


There's also a *Finish* button on the client (Retrospect BMR Boot CD program) but I'm not sure I should click that in order for the Retrospect restore to finish...

That is a problem with any restore. After the file data is restored, there are two things that needs to be done:

1) Copy identical files to all directories. (Only one copy was backed up, due to de-duplication.

2) Setting permissions (including ACLs) to each and every file and folder.


This can take hours, and there is no indication of how long it will take, unfortunately.
