    True Image can make an image of an OS partition while the system is running.
    As I understand TI suspends I/O operations, flushes the disk cache and then catches a consistent state of the file system and writes this state to the image.
    Thats OK.

    But, this is a state when the OS is (was) running, applications can be running too (with several files open and temporary files on the disk).
    However, when the system is restored from such an image, it is not restored to a running state (like un-hibernating), it is just the disk that is restored.
    Does it not appear to the OS when it is booted, that the disk is in a state as if the power was swiched off during operation?
    Are there any measures taken by TI to handle this problem or is it up to the OS to make the necessary corrections (if any)?

    Thanks for reading.
