I use True Image 11, (Build 8027, German) and I had strange problems when I wanted to backup my notebook (HP Compaq 6715b, AMD Turion, running on XP Pro.) on an external 2.5" HDD. First I was using an older USB enclosure with an 2.5" IDE HDD inside. After 10 minutes or so, the backup process came to a halt and True Image crashed. After that I tried the same enclosure but with an external power supply and not only the USB power. This time the backup process worked well for 20 minutes but then also came to a halt and TI crashed also. Then I took another 2.5" HDD, a brand new S-ATA enclosure. Now I was able to backup my Compaq Notebook. But some days later, when I wanted to restor it from that S-ATA drive, True Image crashed in the middle of the process. (Of corse, I also wasn't able to do a restore from the IDE enclosure.) I hat to copy the .tib-file to a 3.5" HDD, which I had on a USB 2.0 to IDE Cable Connect. Only now I was able to restore my Laptop. Did anyone else had such problems?
