It's been 3 years since I've visited, and I had not used my ATI (I uninstalled it from lack of confidence - there seemed a lot of problems back then). A few months ago I rec'd a promo to upgrade from v.8 to v.10 and get a free upgrade to v.11. I decided to do so knowing I was going to have a custom box built for media editing - which I just took delivery on. Even after a few hours re-acclimating myself to the forum and skimming the User Guide, I have some rather basic questions that I am unclear about. Your help and patience will be much appreciated: 1. Can ATI 11 be used with Vista 64x? User's Guide & features link specifies XP64 and only vaguely says Vista "all versions" which isn't implicit about 64bit as is the listing for XP; 2. My primary objective for using ATI is to be able to do a complete restore of OS and programs for pain free disaster recovery & perhaps periodic restore if system slows down or I want to have a clean system. Best practice/option questions: Setup: I have 4 internal hdds. (A) 150GB in 2-partitions for OS and software/programs, respectively; (B) 2 drives in RAID 0 (300GB total) intended primarily as a scratch drive for editing, don't plan to keep data on it; (C) a 750GB data storage drive. Questions: (1) I could put a secure zone on the data drive and image my OS/Program drive to it. But would it be better to do the OS/program image to an external HDD? (I may eventually add an eSata HD.) Or should I do a secure zone on the internal data drive and a non-secure zone backup on the eSata drive? (I will probably archive important data files on the eSata w/o using ATI.) I read a comment from Xpilot where he talked about having rotating backups, but not sure I understood the process. (3) I am unclear about the importance/extra benefit of developing a VistaPE CD, would that be in addition to the ATI recovery CD? Thanks for reading and for helping with my basic questions.
