I'm a recent convert from Norton Ghost, and I was impressed by the greatly reduced backup times compared to the former program. Ghost's Firewire and NTFS drivers didn't seem optimized and achieved a fraction of the throughput of NTBackup, and because Ghost runs under DOS, it also lacked the ability to take advantage of multiple logical or physical processors. So when I installed the trial version of True Image on my new video editing system with a P4D EE 840, I was surprised and pleased that a) the program could run under Windows with its optimized Firewire and NTFS drivers, and b) it was creating multiple threads to keep all four processors (two HT-enabled phyiscal cores) busy. This reduced the time to perform a full backup to about 1/4 to 1/3 of what I was used to from Ghost. I am curious though what the situation under Linux is. If I boot from the Recovery CD, does True Image take full advantage of the processor by creating multiple threads?
