Hi i have a server i am setting up and i made a image with the windows built in backup software and i am trying to test it on another server and as i go throw the restore wizzard it does not see the image. I know Windows see my jump drive which is where the image lives. So what am i doing wrong that windows 2008 cd does not see the image on my jump drive?

Backup doesn't create images but a backup file.
You may wish to review this.

and from here it says

You can store only one-time backups (not scheduled backups) on optical or removable media. Then, you can use backups stored on optical or removable media to perform full volume or bare metal recoveries. You cannot recover applications, individual files, or the system state from backups stored on optical or removable media.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

hi wanderer i did a test restore on a test server and it worked fine so this must be more of a image then a backup file as it restored fine. Is there any way i can save this image on a USB harddrive and restore from it?
