Hiya! I'm sure the stressed and underpaid programmers at acronis ead this forum, so... Would it be possile to add an option in TI to make imaging a windows (xp) system partition more efficient by: - saving the page file as an empty file in the image - saving the hibernation file as an empty file in the image You don't need their contents to restore your system. Saving them as an empty file will speed up making an image. More important: it will reduce the size of the image by 100s of MBs, which can make the difference between an image that fits on a single CD vs. more CDs. To make imaging my system partition faster, and to save a CD, I perform some voodoo rituals before I make an image: - make system restore point - clear all temp folders, browser caches etc. - disable hibernation - disable paging - clear all restore points except the last one When I've made the image, I use system restore to switch paging and hibernation back on. This also repairs the desktop icons messed up by TI7 (this thread: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?p=222880) When I use the image to restore my system, the built-in system restore point switches paging and hibernation back on. There must be a way to automate all this. A scripting tool built into TI should do it.
