Live Restore over Windows XP Service Pack 2

Resources


Computers running Windows XP, Windows XP with Service Pack 1 (SP1), and Windows XP with SP2 have different operating system characteristics, you cannot use a backup created while a computer was running a particular service pack level to perform a live restore after you have installed a different service pack on that computer.

For example, if you create a backup from a computer running SP1 and you later install SP2 on that computer, you cannot use the original backup (created with SP1) to perform a live restore of the computer while it is running SP2. Similarly, if you create a backup from a computer running Windows XP (without a service pack), and you later install SP1 on that computer, you cannot use the original backup to perform a live restore of the computer while it is running SP1.

If you need to roll back your computer to a point in time when it was running a different service pack level, install Windows XP from the installation CD, then install the appropriate Windows XP service pack, then install Retrospect, and then perform the live restore.
