How to Restore Image Based Backup on Another Computer
In some cases, you may need to perform the restore of your system on another computer. To restore your image based backup on another computer just follow the instruction below prior to running the Restore Wizard:
Download and install another copy of MediBackup client on a new computer.
Register exactly the same cloud storage account that used before.
Select the same storage as before.
Click on the Advanced settings link to specify the backup prefix.
From the “Backup prefix” drop-down menu, select the same prefix that you used in you previous computer so that MediBackup client can find the data in the specified storage.
The next step is to synchronize the repository in order to retrieve the metadata of all the files associated with the backed up system.
The repository sync will start automatically. Once sync completed, you will be able to see your backups on the Backup Storage tab. If it is not there by some reason, run the repository sync manually:
To synchronize the repository, select Options from the drop-down menu located in the top-right corner of the screen.
In the Options dialog, navigate on Repository tab and click Synchronize Repository button.
In the Synchronize Repository dialog, select the desired storage account from the Account drop-down list and click Synchronize Now button.
After all the steps required for repository synchronization are done, just go ahead and run the MediBackup Restore Wizard to recover your system from an image based backup.
