Image Restore over the existing original OS partition?

Postby sigi » Thu Apr 11, 2013 7:32 pm

I have no free space on my HD-0 where to restore my WinXP image to. If it says "Paste Pending for Image Restore" and I select the original WinXP partition where the Image came from, the Paste button will become active. So it should be possible to restore the Image over the WinXP partition. Is this correct and does it have any drawbacks to do so or do I first have to delete the OS partition? If so, which option for deletion will I have to select?

I've restored over original partition a number of times and never had a problem as long as the image verifies OK.
