Restore from DVD

Post by aemau » Wed Aug 11, 2004 12:26 am

I have created a backup of a partition, stored the file on a hard drive then burned the file to a DVD. I am able to do a dummy restore from the hard drive but when I try the same operation from the DVD I get an error message something like wrong compression and partimage quits.

Is it possible to restore from DVD or must the file first be copied to a hard drive?



It works, but it's ungodly slow

I've got a TEAC DV-W500 drive and 4X DVD-R media and it did restore. However, Images that take 5 minutes on CD now are taking over 45. I haven't looked into this any further, but plan to in the very near future. I'll put up another post if I come across anything worthwhile.
