Known issues

Backing up Dynamic Disks is only supported through Disk Raw Mode.

DNBMR-688 (17966, VDG‑252)

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.

Using the plug-in with NetVault Bare Metal Recovery Plug-in Offline Client for Windows PE 10.x: To complete a restore job in which the target contains a Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) partition, use a blank disk. Windows PE does not include a tool that can be used to unmount the UEFI partition so that it can be overwritten during the restore; this issue causes restores to fail.

Workaround: Use NetVault Bare Metal Recovery Plug-in Offline Client for Windows PE 11.x or later.

DNBMR-958 (26597)

Performing restores of Raw format disks does not work.
