Since some New people are having problems, I thought it would be a good idea to create this page so Advanced users can share their successful Back-up & Restore procedures. My technique is a Simple and Easy Full "Back-Up" for a stand alone home pc. I don't use the Scheduling, Secure Zone, or anything else. Just a simple, quick...manual Backup done ENTIRELY from the "Boot-CD". Back-Up = 1. I run "Scandisc" and then "Defrag". Once completed,...Put the "Boot-CD" in the Rom, and shut it off. 2. Turn the USB External HD on, and then Reboot the computer. 3. Then choose the "Back-Up" in the Boot-CD menu. Then make a FULL Back-up, and save it to the USB External. (I like doing this better because you're not actually booting into Windows) Restoring = I always use the Boot-CD to "Restore" the .TIB file.
