Started using Shadow Protect recently. On a Win 7 laptop, we made a few continuous incremental images when it was in the office (only as recent as August). Then it was in the field and wasn't getting backed up. Recently, it would get stuck at the 'welcome' screen. Ran a SMART test program and it said hard drive had errors. Went to make a backup using the recovery environment. It got some non-fatal errors but did finish. (see the attached picture. This is in the middle of the process - it did wind up finishing)
We replaced the hard drive. restored the recent image and at starup it blue screens with an F4 error.
We restored the August image and that loads up fine. So I am thinking that those non-fatal errors from the recent backup are corrupted files it needs at startup?
I have the 2 images (august and the problematic new one) mounted on another machine and wonder - would anyone know what files I want to move over from the older image (with good files) into the newer damaged image to make a good, more recent image?
Yeah, I could restore the august image and copy over files but invariably, there are changes / apps installs / registry changes since August that moving just files won't work?
