Image backup and restore - Ethernet drive

My laptop operating system is Windows 7 Pro.
As you know, an image backup can be created using the built in backup program.  Also an emergency rescue disk can be created.

My question:  My backup is on an ethernet drive (not usb).  When I boot using the rescue disk, what must I do to be able to access the image backup on the ethernet drive?

Some BIOS have a setting where you can enable ethernet devices to be detected on boot.  I'd try there first.

Hi,

when you start your recovery cd, it will ask you where your image is, enter your ethernet disk ip \\10.10.10.10\  for exemple, then it will ask you for login and password ( if you have set any on your NAS)  the recovery CD contain some NIC drivers, but be sure to have a copy of your NIC Card drivers on a seperate disk, if you get the message "Location does not contain drivers for my hardware" , it mean that the recovery CD need those drivers.

hope that help
cheers.

Boot to the Rescue CD, select "System Image Recovery", then choose "Select a system image", you will be asked for the location of your system image you want to restore, select "Advanced" at the bottom, then you would put in the path to your ethernet connected share. It will need to be in the form of \\(IP Address of ethernet device)\(share) (example: \\192.168.1.45\windowsimagebackup). That should get you pointed in the right direction and the rest of the wizard should be pretty straight forward.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

To be honest the easiest thing to do is open the box and take out the drive.
Then either hook it up directly to one of the computers SATA ports or just use one of those 3 in one SATA/IDE USB adapters
