Hi Łukasz,

Is it possible to clean the target disk completely?

Łukasz,

Glad you nailed it and thank you for the heads up! Out of curiosity, did you erase the ‘destination’ disk and then restore the whole the OS volume without 'System Reserved' partition? If you backup the OS volume, ‘System Reserved’ partition should be automatically included in the backup (unless it was manually excluded).
