Restore problem - Cant Map the C:\

Veeam Logoby aeccles » Fri Feb 06, 2015 7:52 pm

When I attempt to restore the wizard is unable to auto map the volumes and tells me to do a manual map.
When I load the manual screen, I am able to map the "System Volume" to my disk, but the C:\ is greyed out. I have a 2tb drive and the C: partition is only about 200gb, so it would easily fit. The drive I am mapping to says unallocated space... perhaps an issue there?

Any suggestions?

I'll boot with a windows cd, format the drive and then give it another try.

Hi aeccles,
Wanted to clarify first are you performing volume restore inside OS or while running bare metal recovery?

Thanks for the quick response but you can ignore this... I am all set. It was a sizing issue afterall. When I as right-clicking in the manual mode to map the C to the disk, it was showing me a different size than what was actually needed.

Glad you nailed it, though I am still curious if the size was displayed incorrectly by restore UI or not?
