Data Protector 5.5 Disk Image

Jump to solution
I would like to take a disk image of both Windows systems and HPUX. In Data Protector I only see a way to restore from disk image.

Is this a different license I have to buy?
You're going to do what? Do you still want to access your data?

Hi,
No, you don't need any new license but configuring disk image backups is a little tricky.

Start the Interactibe backup wizard, click "Next", select a device, click "Next" again until you reaches the "Backup summary" window. Then select "Add object" and select "Disk Image".

Hi gkornacki,

when you perform a Disk Image Backup, you can do only Disk Image restore. It is not possible to make file restore from Disk Image Backup.

Hi,
this sounds interesting. Is this a possibilty to make a desaster recivery for a Windows 2003 server, which is pretty difficult with normal backup.
Is this comparable t other imaging software like drive image or acronis true image?

Reiner,

Data Protector Disk Image backup is comparable with Acronis, but Acronis cans restore files from Disk Image Backups (you can mount a backup image and read data from it). DP doesn't know it.
