I have been using TI 8 build 889 successfully for about a month. I am getting a new 200 gig internal HD next week and want to implement good backup procedures to that new hard drive. I am using XP Home Edition, with SP2. I have C, D, and E partitions on an existing 160 gig drive, and will install the 200 gig drive as F. All images will be written to F. All file systems are NTFS. All drives are IDE. I don't anticipate using external drives or DVD/CD for imaging. Thus far, none of my images have been larger than 18 gigs. However, I anticipate that within a year, I will likely have 60 or 80 gigs on D and E and will want to backup those large partitions separately to F. Are very large images more problematic in any sense than images of say 20 gigs?? Do any of you have personal experience using TI to restore large images to an internal HD?? For the record, I will also be backing up data through backup programs and drag/drop, because I refuse to rely on images alone. Any comments appreciated.
