I have used full system restore with ATI10 with an XP system with no problems whatsoever. My Dell XPS1330 laptop's HDD was noisy so before Dell turned up to replace the drive i took a complete system backup of the drive expecting to just whack it back on again after but it seems it has other ideas. I boot off the Acronis bootable CD i created, goto full version option goto recovery restore wizard it analyzes the partitions i then find and select the .TIB file on the connected USB HDD i select restore disks and partitions select disk1 (all boxes then selected below), click next then the system completely hangs and if i touch the mouse button or any other key it immediately bleeps. If i load Vista first it goes through all the motions then hangs on the last part where it looks like it's going to load data onto the HDD. i have actually have it start to do this with some data going on and left it over night but still it hung. i have verified the .TIB file in question and it's fine. Will upgrading to later version of TI solve this as I'm stuffed not being able to get all my data off. Thanks for any help.
