Is it possible to restore the actual UrBackup PC?

I’m making images of my server using UrBackup. If I boot from the restore CD it looks for a server, which obviously it wont be able to find in this instance. Is there a way to point to the local hard drive that contains the image backups and restore?

If you have some Linux knowledge you can restore via command line:

Thanks! I’ll give it a try.


Almost worked! Just to let you know that smbmount isn’t available anymore so I did the following (in case you want to update the wiki page):

sudo su
fdisk -l | grep NTFS
mkdir /mnt/ntfs
mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /mnt/ntfs
cd /root
{restored the MBR}
{restored the volume}

…at this point it got to 29% and returned an error:
ERROR: Error while decompressing file. Error code -3 terminate called after throwing an instance of ‘std::bad_alloc’ what(): std::bad_alloc

Any ideas? Is that just a corrupt image? I’m using VHDZ.

EDIT: Don’t worry! I may have restored to the wrong volume as I’ve got two identical sized partitions. I’ll give it another test, but others may still find this post useful for the commands above. Sorry!
