Hi, I have TI 9 and it is my understanding that a complete restore of winXP is only possible if winXP is bypassed via the boot cd? Please confirm. What is the best way to run a full backup? By booting from the CD or can I simply run TI under winXP? My guess is, that not all system files will be copied if the backup is done under windows. I think that TI is a great product, it saved my data twice (couldn't restore windows itself though, might be my user error by not reppairing the MBR afterwards) Thanks in advance for your advice!
