    Disk image


    I made a disk image using Reflex. I tried to do a restore to see how It would work. I ended up making 4 files all of which can be used to restore because they have all the folders and files that were backed up. Since I donít need all of them I tried to delete them but they are read-only files. I used the command prompt to change the attribute but with the command prompt I could find the original image but not the files that it created. Does anyone have any ideas?

    You should only delete images through the Reflect interface. Use Restore and the click on other tasks and you'll see the delete option. Deleting full backups will delete any linked incremental and differential backups based on that full backup. If you delete images outside of Reflect you'll mess up the Reflect database.

    That worked like a charm! Thank you.
