    New user, first post.

    First, I've had TI for about 6/8 weeks and while it does work (Build and
    restore), and there are some improvements i am looking forward to

    I dont do incrementals, seems like a waste of time when a full image dont
    take all that long (maybe some of you have a full HD or 2 where it would
    make more sense).

    I'm not an expert on TI by any means but it does work and work well
    altho the improvements i would like to see are:

    1. Combine the process into 1 step - image creation, secure zone and
    recovery manager(F11 key). All in 1 process.

    2. Instead of having to delete the previous (full) image outside of TI,
    have a window asking if the user wants to delete it. If yes, also remove
    the secure zone and recovery manager i.e., back to square 1 (starting
    from scratch with only the full image option available).

    3. Not sure here but can't the secure zone size be calculated based on
    the image files? Why do the users have to give a size when they really
    have no idea what it should be. To little space and i dont know what
    would happen, to much and i'm wasting my HD space.

    4. Why does the program need to be re-updated (basically reinstalled)
    each time before doing a new full image? Maybe i'm off base here but
    thats what happens to me.

    Admittedly, i'm no expert (far from it) but these things just seem to
    make sense to me.

    I see TI does read this forum (great guys). So maybe they or anyone
    else would care to comment? Like i said, i can make it work, if i pay close
    attention, but the process seems arkward to me. o_O

    One other comment unrelated to the above.
    From another thread about bad spots on HD. Its a fact that HD's do
    develope bad spots (that the user may or may not be aware of). If in the
    course of doing a restore and bad spots are encountered, i think TI
    should adjust around it and continue on with the restore. After a number
    of spots are encountered, have TI stop, but, inform the user that X
    number of bad spots has been found (but the image is still safe) and to
    replace that disk with a new one or at least check the drive (if possible)
    and try again.
    Sorry, couldn't help this last comment but other programs work around bad spots with no problems.
