I am using FBackup 4.7 using the Full Backup option.
I had an issue and tried to restore. The restore failed, saying a password was required. But no password had been set!
In observing the restore, I noted that the restore worked fine until it hit the hiberfil.sys file. At that point, it asks for a password and no more files are restored...
It starts out fine:

I tried the machine Windows Password but that did not help.
Any ideas on how to restore properly?
Thanks very much,

Are you trying to restore the OS over the current one?

Please note FBackup was not designed for system backup, but for data files backups only.
