I have been using my Samsung NC10 since I have recieved it as a present for christmas, however I seem to of encountered a problem with Sony Ericsson’s PC Suite which I used to allow my NC10 to connect to the internet through with my phone. I am planning on using the backup that was created at first boot so I do not have to go manualy hunting for drivers and programs like you do when you reinstall from the disc. However, I have all of my data on the second partition that is created when you first start. I am wondering if I do perform a restore will it remove the data on my second partition?
Thanks for your help in advanced,February 3, 2009 at 10:48 pm #182368
No SRS III is “smart” enough to only revert the system files if you choose to do so.February 3, 2009 at 10:56 pm #182366mauwongMember
Agree w/ Don_Audio. If you do a full restore, everything in the c: drive will be replaced with the image of your initial backup. However, your d: will be not be touched.February 3, 2009 at 11:09 pm #182371
Thanks for your help, I think I would restore it toward the weekend as I would have alot of stuff to install back on and such, also I would need to customise firefox back to the way I like it (using the guide I found here 🙂 ).February 3, 2009 at 11:20 pm #182367mauwongMember
When you have a clean set-up (i.e. everthing customized to your liking), you can create a second backup to your d: using SRS. This will save you time when something drastic happen again.February 3, 2009 at 11:20 pm #182369
BTW: You should consider creating another restore-point once you have reinstalled all your Software again.
SRS can handle more than one restore-point so you dont have to revert to recovery image everytime your system gets messed up.

Thanks for your help everyone, although I have one last question. If I resize the first partition (not the hidden backup partition the one with the system files) will this affect the backups in anyway? For example will I lose the ability to restore backups? I want to do this because my data uses a lot more space than the operating system and applications ever will.February 4, 2009 at 1:43 am #182370
Hmm i cant really answer this since i dont know how SRS creates Backups.
If it works like DriveImage it will simply backup all the files and basic filesystem infos allowing you to restore it to any partition as long the partition is at least the size of the backed up data.
But you might very well end up with a error message telling you that the current partition is not suitable for your recovery.
What are you trying to achieve? Maybe there’s another way like linking the other partition into a folder instead of giving it a Driveletter.
Whatever you do:
NEVER destroy the hidden EISA backup partition or you will never be able to use SRS again
