I've never had success with ATI. Took too long to make an image, like a couple hours. The same time frame with a restore, except it never worked. Here come the provisos. Granted these are my experiences. And I haven't tried ATI in over a year maybe more. And because Acronis MigrateEasy works 100% for me. I've tried to put the frustrations of ATI behind me. I know & accept that ATI works for thousands. I accept that this is user error. My error. Is there a step by step guide to ATI? Likened to Blackspear's Extra settings for Nod32 v2.5 guide. http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=37509 This guide was easy for me to follow. All instructions I've found for ATI including Acronis documentation on their site, within the ATI program itself and here has been incomprehensible. My frustration of not getting ATI to work is back. I read the glowing reports here. Now that I've got a DVD burner. I'd like to use my spare HDD for purposes other than a clone. So to sum up. I'm not blaming ATI. I know this is my deal. So any guide like Blackspear's Extra settings for Nod32 v2.5 guide would be appreciated. And a version number of ATI that goes with it. Thanks for your time.
