Restoring a GPT partition table to a larger disk results in a new partition that is the same size as the original: When a DR image is taken, the partition table is stored with it. At restore time, this partition is written to the new target disk and re-creates the original disk. If you restore to a disk that is larger than the original, the disk is partitioned to match the original size, which can result in unused disk space. For example, if you restore a 100GB image to a 200GB disk, it is partitioned for 100GB and leaves the extra space unused. You can use third-party partitioning tools, such as GNU Parted or PartitionMagic, to correct this issue.

Restarting a machine that was booted using VaultOS intermittently causes a General Protection Fault. If you restart the machine, it should boot normally.


After you restore a Windows Server® 2012 system, the system displays the Recovery screen the first time that you start it. You can either select See advanced repair options > Continue or Restart my PC to complete bringing up the client.
