Thanks for reply.

None help.

All partitions are visible in "Drives" Tab. (and dell utility part too).

All partitions are visible in "Define New Backup Job". (and dell utility part too).

But Dell Utility Partition is not visible in "One time Backup" and in "Editing Settings.." of existing job.

But it is all OK in SSR2011. All partitions are visible in all tasks.

Is this a fresh install or a upgrade from earlier version.

I will request you to open a support ticket with System Recovery to get into more details of it.

We are requesting you to mark the forums as Solution , so that is makes easier for the viewer to search and refer the posts with "Solutions"

In both cases (fresh install or a upgrade from earlier version) are same things.
