    It is embarassing to confess that I have been using ATI v. 9 and 10 without knowing what safe and full vesions are. Since I was not able to find sections for these two issues in Help file, I simply selected Full Version for creating Rescue Boot Disk and also for restoring tib. So far, I did not encounter any problem. But I would like learn what these are and what they are for? Your comment would be appreciated. Sarutaro

    The Safe version just loads less drivers. For example: you wont be able to use usb devices.

    The FULL versions uses a version of Linux to run the programs and access your drives. If the Linux drivers support your hardware this is the faster mode of the two.

    SAFE mode uses a version of DOS and the computer's BIOS to access the drives. This is a lot slower and most older computers won't access USB hard drives in this mode. Network access is also not available.
