* The Restore as MBR or Restore as GPT option can restore MBR disk to GPT or restore GPT disk to MBR. Only available in "Disk mode".

* The Restore to original location option can help you restore the partition to its original location on the original disk and ensure that other partitions on the disk will not be destroyed. Only available when the original partition(s) still exists.

* The Keep partition layout option can ensure that the partition layout of the destination disk is exactly the same as the source disk after the restore operation is completed. Only available in "Disk mode".

Step 4. Adjust the size and location of the partition(s) according to your needs, then click "Proceed". A warning message may pop up to tell you that all data on the destination drive will be destroyed, click the "Yes" to continue if you do not have important data on the destination disk.

* Disk alignment:

  1. 1M (Recommended): 1M alignment is a subset of 4K alignment, and partitions aligned by 1M are always 4K alignment, so it can help you get the best performance of an SSD. In Windows Vista and later OSs, partitions created using Windows Disk Management always aligned by 1M bytes, regardless of whether the disk is an SSD.
  2. 4K: Ensure that the start sector of each destination partition is always aligned by 4K bytes, which is very important for the best performance of an SSD.
  3. Cylinder: Ensure that the start sector of each destination partition always starts at the beginning of a cylinder. Windows XP and previous OSs use this alignment mode.
  4. None: The start sector of each destination partition is not aligned.

* The Sector by sector restore partition option enables you to restore the content in backup image to destination partition sector by sector.

Step 5. Hasleo Backup Suite began restoring the disk or partition to the destination location. Please note that the time required for restore operation is related to the size of the data that needs to be restored, so please be patient.
