    Hi I was trying to restore my OS from a back up I made but when I run it, it comes up with this message:
    "restore failed because a disk which was critical at backup is excluded. to continue you need to either remove the disk from exclusion list or detach it from machine or clean it using diskpart utility, and then retry restore. if you cannot clean or detach it then change the disk signature"
    Does anybody know how to fix this? Thanks

    Welcome to the forums.

    1. Do you know what disk it is talking about? Did you use a disk at backup time?
    2. You ask how to fix it but the error itself gives you a few solutions. Did you try them? (ex: clean or detach the disk etc...) What did you try and what happened that it didn't work?
