Up to now, I've never had a need to restore my entire C-drive. Yesterday however, I noticed that my Windows (XP Pro - SP2) was corrupted in that I could not open a Print or Search dialog box. The first thing I tried was System Restore, but apparently the problem existed in all of the restore points I had. I recalled that Windows was working well in this regard a week ago and I had created an image at that time, so I decided to restore it. Upon selecting last week's image of my C-drive as the image to restore and my C-drive as the volume I wanted to restore it to, TI8 informed me that the existing partitions would have to be deleted (which I selected), and it then recommended a reboot (which I selected). Upon rebooting, I again made the appropriate selections and the Restore Wizard poped-up a "Processing - Please Wait" box... The 'clock-like gizmo' started-out like it was indeed processing but then stopped, sittiing in the same position for over 30 minutes, so I decided the system was hung-up. I next tried to boot the system with my TI8 Rescue CD to attempt the restore and got the very same results! I might add that I have always verified (checked) the images I have created, including the one in question... So much for relying on True Image!!!
