Partition recovery after recovering whole HDD
I have an important question: Can I recover a single partition AFTER recovering the HDD allowing access to all data without any restriction? Reason is the following: I have an Acer TravelMate and want to use an old backup to recover the HDD and its structure (similar to the D2D [Disk-toDisk] recovery function of Acer) because this D2D doesn't work anymore after I had a system crash during HDD access. But at the time I made the backup it worked because I resetted my notebook the day before using D2D. So I planned to use the HDD backup to recover the HDD structure. After that I wanted to use the today's partition backups to recover the current status. But I don't know if I also have to recover the MBR of the HDD in order to access all data. Or do I have to recover the MBRs of the partitions AND the MBR of the HDD?
Does anybody have an idea how to do that? AFA I know the partition table is associated with the MBR of the disk and the MFTs are associated with every partition.
