    Open the TI program. On the left of the screen under tools select Create bootable Rescue media. Open the wizard and open the CD drawer. Put a writable CD in the drawer and leave it open.
    Now just follow the wizard to ceate a full and safe CD. the CD drawer will close itself and the rescue CD will be produced.

    Test that this CD will actually boot your computer.

    To create your first backup image select Backup under pick a task on the TI main page and follow the Wizard. Just work your way through it and make your choices.

    Put the Users Guide to one side you may not need to refer to it again !!

    Hi Xpilot
    Thank you for your prompt reply.I assume a dvd will perform just as well. Will try your suggestion ASAP.
    Thanks

    No need to use a dvd to make the bootable Rescue CD. The space required is about 30 mb. If you meant for backing up directly to DVD media, that is the painful way to do it. Much faster and less problematic to use another hard drive - internal or external.

    No idea I am afraid. I keep my DVD RAMs next to my DVD recorder under my TV where they belong [​IMG].

    I hope that you will be making backups to another hard drive, internal for preference. Although one can use DVDs for backups I prefer to use them for video use where they perform impecccably.

    doulton,
    If you have a little extra time, perhaps my guides (link below) can illustrate how to perform some of the chores you will need to do using True Image Home.
