The ADI disk imaging expects to restore an image of the entire disk and not just a partition so you need to pick the HDD when capturing the disk image. I've never had a successful image restore when using a partition based image. I've only been able to successfully restore an image of the entire disk.
and what up with it getting 440GB of Data instead of the actual used 47GB, is that due to my resizing the partition with gparted?
Thats the strangest thing. The virtual drive is 500G, The first partition ist 129G with 47G of used Data. If I choose the HDD it shows 440G used and starts imaging all 440G. If I chose Partition one, it correctly sees the 47G used.
I guess the partition-table or something like that on the Virtual HDD is defective.
I am starting now with a fresh Windows Install on a VHD that has only 60G. Thats way more work as I have to do all the customizing again, but at least the HDD Cloning should be easy as pie.
