When doing a recover of a partition that is not assigned a drive letter the target drive label may not be correct.  On my system when I try to recover any partition that doesn't have a drive letter assigned the Target drive: will be  listed as "Win 7 HP - PG" (see attachments) this is the volume label of partition 2 of disk 0.

"Symantec System Recovery 2013 Desktop Edition" version 11.0.2.49853 needs to be updated to load the "Current Partition Label" into the "Completing the Recover Drive Wizard" "Target drive:", not use some default volume label!  This works correctly if the partition has a drive letter assigned but, does NOT if the partition being written to is not assigned a drive letter. 

NOTE: The correct partition gets recovered, it just a problem because you aren't sure which partition is going to be written to.  In time of distart you DON'T need another problem!!!
