    About four months ago, I had a 160gb hard drive in Win XP. I had an old copy of Acronis True Image-8.

    Not knowing much about what I was doing, I made a full image, and 3 incremental (I hoped), in an external USB hard drive. Which is when my hard drive quit.

    Some time passed, and I stuck a 250gb hard drive in, and had it where I could do a CD boot.

    I put the copy of TI-8 in the CD drive, and fiddled around until I finally got it sort of going. The thing was, every time I did something, it seemed as if it was progressive. The restore section gave me the wizard. In going through the wizard, there were lots of things I had no idea of. Reading instructions helped. I just spent 7 hours, and now have a total, full windows and all my files just like it was before the hard drive failure.

    This should be the example that even with the old TI-8, you can still get your hard drive the way it used to be. I am very happy!! I think the idea here is to use the full image of Acronis programs. Even if you're not the resident expert, you may find it really saves your bacon.
