I'm pretty hot right now, so I apologize in advance if this post is negative. I am/was using the latest release of True Image (774). After reading many reviews of Ghost, Backitup Now, etc. I decided True Image would best suit my needs. Installed fine, burnt a boot DVD disk with no problems and went to do the image. Got an error message that the Disk is Full/ Poor Media, which was odd as I was using brand new DVD's. Came here and found this thread: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?p=264750#post264750 which indicates that this program can only use _RW_ disks and _only_ if it's UDF formatted with DirectCD. Since I use Nero, that kinda left me out. Undaunted, I formatted a rewritable UDF disk with Nero anyway. Then I found this thread: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=48186 which indicates that I have to use a 635 mb image size and use WinIso to make an ISO disk. Well, at this point I decided that this program was, in fact, _not_ what I was looking for. I didn't want to have to jump through a bunch of hoops, install a bunch of specific programs other than the ones _I_ want to use, just to make a hd image. So, I uninstalled the program, rebooted, and as I usually do, went through the registry to delete all the references to the uninstalled program. Searching for Acronis and True Image, I found about 10 or so references and deleted them. _But_, there is one instance in the Hkey/Local Machine/Software section with the name of Acronis that I can _not_ delete. I'm the admin of this system, I changed the Permissions to Full Control and I _still_ cannot delete the reference. How do I delete this key, as I want no reference to Acronis in the registry. As a side note, why is it so difficult to design a disk imaging proggie where I can: 1. Make a bootable DVD disk, _not_ rewritable but a standard - or + DVD, not CD, disk. 2. Put a recoverable_complete_ image of my hd _not_ parsed out in any sections but a complete, full image, on that boot disk. 3. Be able to insert that disk, re-boot my computer, have a menu come up giving me the option to format my hard drive. 4. Put the image on that newly formatted hard drive. 5. Not require _any_ other programs such as Nero, DirectCD, WinIso. 5. Not require the use of the .NET framework (that's what ruled out Norton's Ghost). Surely, that's not asking too much.
