Introduction


Pimgrestore is a program to restore image files created by Partimage. With pimgrestore its possible to restore an image file under Windows. You can run pimgrestore under Linux too. You can run a script or program between multivolumes.

If you have questions, simply contact me.

Use it at your own risk!


Features


  • Restore partition under Windows and Linux
  • Restore partition into a file (under Linux you can mount it as loop device)
  • Multivolumes
  • Run a command between multivolume restore, ex. to eject cd and print a message for cd change
  • Gzip compression
  • Extract mbr's from image file

Limitations


The current version 0.3 is a test version with some limitations.

  • CRC checks are only partial included. You have to be sure that your image is ok
  • Bzip2 compressed images are not supported under windows.
  • Bzip2 compressed multivolumes are not supported under windows and linux.

How to use under Windows


Download pimgrestore.exe.

You have to create a partition and assign a drive letter. We use for this example S. Formatting this partition is not required.

We want to restore the image testimage.000 to the drive letter S:. Be careful. This can destroy your data!

Run from the commandline pimgrestore testimage.000 \\.\S:

Update the partition type ID with plppart32.

You can see an example how to use pimgrestore with the Flybuntu installation in the setup.bat (flybuntuinstall.zip 0.2MB).
