Drive Image query.

Can anyone tell me please if you can restore a program as opposed to individual files, from an Image that has been made previously.( in Drive Image).
I shall not get back tonight but will check in the A.M. Thanks J

Cann't anyone answer my query please.
I have trawled through the search answers but cannot find anything relevant. J

Suspect that your desire to restore a program is not possible, remember that in addition to restoring the program files there is a need to restore Registry entries, dll's etc.

I have never tried doing it but the programme does state that you can restore files or folders from a stored image.

Open the backup image browser and from this open the required backup file. It will probably show as a V2i drive. Browse to the file you want to restore and click on restore the current selection from the toolbar.

But, for a program you are going to want all the registry entries and anything else that may have been copied to various places on your hard drive.
It could prove to be impossible. I assume its something you no longer have the disc for.
