    :mad: Just downloaded the lastest version TI sofware and got the same error many people in the forum have been talking about. Spent hours reading the solutions and going through a half dozen CD-R's. A horible amount of time was spent because I trusted PC Magazine's review of this sofware. I have learned a lesson never to trust a review again. This software still should be in beta.

    I have done the recommend actions to back up my laptop, Dell Inspiron 5100 and it still does not work!

    o got the latest version of TI
    o got the updated verion of XP Pro
    o booted up in safe mode
    o waited for the CD to ask me for a disk
    o looked for a utility to slow down my Cendyne USB CD-R drive. It does not exist.

    I am very frusted and cynical right now. I just wasted an evening.

    Can I install TI on my desktop and create a bootable CD with it and use it to boot up my laptop if they have the same operating system? Will this work?

    Hi, willitwork

    Welcome to Wilders and Acronis Forums.

    You should try it on a CD-RW Drive. [CD-Rewriter]

    Take Care,
