Thanks. I am not pissed, just confused.
Please note that the image that is backed up is LVM and includes three separate drives. Therefore, SDA1, SDB1, and SDC1 are all part of my logical volume that I backed up.
When I try to restore the image to a blank 500Gb partition on my external hard drive, it says something like it cannot do it because there are multiple devices in the image. That is why I thought I should maybe set up three separate partitions (SDE1, SDE2 and SDE3) for the backup.
That will not work?
