M17x R3 unit, Alienware Respawn. run the backup onto a usb 3.0 16gb drive. all is fine. The problem comes around when you want to restore a completely blank drive. (DO NOT use the USB 3.0 ports) yes, simple enuff, but could not understand all the wierd errors, about not finding the info. Place the pen drive over in the USB 2.0 ports, and it works fine.
Just so you know. The respawn does not work yet with USB 3.0
Hi, as a matter of fact, I just posted a message with the exact same tip because I had the same issue on my M11x.
I hope this will save some time to other alienware users!
