Rollback, Backup and Restore Disk Partitioning Info

Disk Partitioning Information is an MBR/GPT, Partition Table and Volume Boot Sectors for each existing partition on the disk.

You might ask, "Why should I backup Partitioning Info?"

Here is the answer: If you something goes wrong while attempting to recover the partition (for example you recovered wrong partition), you will be able to restore original partitioning structure for the drive being repaired.

Automatic Partitioning Backups

When you are trying to resolve your partitioning problem in place, you usually execute such commands of Active@ UNERASER as Create/Fix Partitioning, Convert Partition Style, Fix Boot Sector, Delete Invalid Partition and Recover Partition (in place). Every command execution has been automatically logged the partitioning backup file. If something goes wrong (you recovered not a proper partition, you accidentally removed a valid partition...) you always have a chance to rollback your last changes to the system.

Backups are stored for each physical device at the location Partitioning auto-backups default path in Settings.

To rollback partitioning changes:

  1. Start Active@ UNERASER and select a physical device that you want to rollback changes for
  2. From Partition menu click Rollback Partition Changes... command
  3. Select a backup file, or confirm the backup file default location
  4. Select a restore point to rollback to. If you executed several commands, these commands listed from top to bottom, and you can select a particular place to revert to
  5. Click Rollback
  6. Rollback process starts, you can check the results in log
