I experienced a drive corruption on my Lenovo Y580 using RapidDrive. I have a partition level backup of all partitions from the drive, which correctly has the SSD and HDD partitions seperated. The problem I'm running in to is determining how to re-link the partitions after restoration. There is clearly some kind of magic that RapidDrive uses to fake them in to appearing the same as I can see from the way that partitions show up. Is there a tool or some manual way to reassociate the partitions after I nuke everything and restore the base unassociated partitions or am I going to have to try to restore all but the HDD C drive partition, force Windows in to working in safe mode, reapply the RapidDrive against the empty drive and then do a file and folder level restore on the linked drive?

Yeah, I know the images are good. I can browse the file systems on the images just fine. I'd prefer to get it back to a working state though. That's the beauty of partition level backups is that they can restore a system to an exact image, problem is that RapidDrive screws with the process pretty severely and is not well documented (if documented at all).
