With the SystemRescueCd I backed up the /dev/sda6 partition in /mnt/backup/ naming "diskimage"

the file is name like this:

Do I have to name with the .pimg extension during backup to restore correctly?


And how can I restore it?

You will use the file you created:


(do not forget of typing the extension .000), check the restore box, and point to the partition (its size has to be greater than or equal to the size of the original partition) in the new disk that will receive the backup:
