Had to replace SSD - True Image Recovery fails
Because my fan broke down and of an absolutely hilarious (FLAWED) design of the Dell XPS 13 7390 I had to have my whole motherboard with soldered on SSD and RAM) replaced.
I have been doing monthly full backups so I thought at least I will be able to restore my laptop easily.
Man was I wrong.
No matter what I do there is no freaking way that the backup RESTORE will get any further than "Preparing" when running "Recover PC".
Found some KB infos regarding "Prerequsites" which mention I need to have the exact same logical partitions in place - but honestly who would write those down up front? If not mentioned somewhere as a VERY important detail, since I know approx how big my two partitions were ie about 800 to 780 and 200 to 220 GB (adding up to little below 1TB) but def not to KB level! Could this be a reason for failure don' know?
What's even more when it then fails and basically just restarts and I open my Acronis TI 2018 it even tells me that Recovery succeeded without a single thing having been recovered.
Could this tool be useless in this type of use cases? Being only useable to recover in place on the same discs?
