    I installed TI 11 Home
    I created a securezone of 50% of drive space on 1st hd (only one installed)
    I successfully made a full backup of partition (C:) on SZ
    I started TI by pressing F11 during boot
    I tried to restore and failed

    --> as location to get image from i only saw "Arbeitsplatz" (english: "my Computer")
    --> How can i select secure zone as source for restore?
    --> I read ALL of the booklet and a lot in this forum but didn't find my mistake

    System info: fresh installed acer laptop with XP Pro and drivers

    what i wanted from TI: If User messes up his notebook he can press F11 select restore and can work on (and doesn't bring the notebook to me again)

    And if the hard drive dies how are you planning to get the user back to some semblance of workability? Or is the factory restore going to suffice in this situation?

    I presume you made a bootable rescue disk. Boot on it, and then see what it offers you for recovery options. If you haven't then do make one.

    Buy an external HDD and create backups onto the external HDD. This protects you in case the 1st HDD fails.
