"Invalid Symantic Recovery Disk Location specified"

Created: 24 Jan 2011

I recently had the need to recover my disk from a backup.  I tried using the recovery disk, and that failed so I ended up trying to do files.

In the process, I ended up getting my Save & Restore 2.0.0 updated to 2.0.6.  Now I want to make a recovery disk of the 2.0.6 version so that I can possibly have something that works better than the 2.0.0 version.  The "create recovery disk" option asks for a location for the backup, but no matter what I specify (local hard disk, CD-rw drive, USB removeable disk)  I always get "Invalid Symantic Recovery Disk Location specified".  Is this newer version broken?
