Restoring an image ???

Post by Graham » Wed Jun 13, 2007 12:30 pm


Just a few questions :).

If I have backed up a 10GB partition (say with openSUSE 10.2 and grub installed on this partiton) would it backup only the data (say 5GB) or backup the full 10GB?

If I were to restore back into this partition, would it restore the full 10GB or just the 5GB used by data? If just the data (5GB), what would happen to the remaining 5GB? Does this appear as free space for that partition or does it appear as unused spare? (ready to be formatted). Hope that makes sense :).

One last thing, If I restored to my original partiton, would openSUSE 10.2 load as normal without having to make any changes (with GRUB being on that partition).
