I purchased TI 8 about 10 days ago. I had a system problem after installing it which was resolved and I am currently having a minor system problem every time I use it (which is still under investigation). I think the NUMBER 1 requirement of backup software is DEPENDABILITY. I may back up 20 times or 200 times without ever needing to restore, but when I do need to restore that restore MUST work, PERIOD. Reading the posts in this forum has cast considerable doubt on whether I can depend on TI when I need it. My previous software (DriveImage 2002) was not as nice as TI in many respects but it NEVER failed me when I needed to do a restore. I understand that this forum is for problems and that for every post here there may be 500 totally satisfied users. But I would really like some of you who have more experience with TI to let me know whether I can depend on TI to restore my system correctly and without problems when I need to do a restore.
