Whew, pretty buggy alright. I can image and verify to a server. However, as you said, in the case of local disks for storing the image: it says "access denied". While True Image is running, the drive letters disappear from file managers. But, they reappear when True Image is closed. Seems like it's "lock prior to imaging" function is out of control. But, it won't allow a restore from the server, it wants to reboot as usual. Anyway, I'm tired of it for now.
