No you point it to a backup device to backup too like a external or internal HD. I have a Ntfs external usb drive they go to.
You can't restore an image from the desktop. You have to boot up with the Redo CD as no OS can be running backing up or restoring a HD image.
and it restores when you want it too,but,how do you restore the snapshot?is it when you boot from the cd and it automatically picks up the snapshots?
You boot up the CD and there you have the option to backup or restore. You point restore to where your backup images are stored and point it to the target partitions to restore. A source from (Backup Image) to a Target drive (Where the original partitions resided on the HD).
