The images aren't stored in the database. They are stored in a directory on your server. The database only stores information about the images. You would have to restore the images directory within your PowerGallery as well.

They are stored in the images directory within your PowerGallery as I said in the first response.

Sorry to sound thick, but I have now allocated the directory "images" on the server.

I am trying to understand what files I need to back up and then what procedure needed to restore without having to reload all the individual images in the admin panel.

So if I copy the image file from the server and using this as a backup. Then restore by ftp up to the server would this work. Can you tell me if there is any documentation provided for a back up and restore?

There isn't any documentation for backing up and restoring the gallery. You would want to save a copy of the connections folder, the images folder and the database. Everything else shouldn't have changed from the default files. To restore, you would want to upload the default files to the server, and then replace those two directories and then import the database again as well.
