    Newly installed TrueImage 10. Separate external 80G HD "J" for backups.
    First Full backup of "C" Drive ..contents = 33,724,137.472
    Review on completion to "J".....contents = 26,474,454,016

    Why the difference..o_O?? 7,249,683,456 o_O o_O

    What do you mean by "Review on completion" ?

    How many backups have you made?
    Where did you save your "First Full backup to"?
    What file system are you using on each partition ?
    Are you running with disk compression?

    As clearly stated TI #10 "new installation" Obviously first and only "1" BU.
    Saved to the new external HD "J" as also stated.
    NTFS (1) partition
    No compression

    Or, perhaps not so clearly stated ;)

    The way I read it first time round was that you were saying in your original post that the size of the first full backup was 33,724,137.472
    Rereading it, I now suspect that this size has nothing to do with the back up but is the size of the contents of the source disk you were backing up. If that is the case then you are probably running with normal compression enabled.

    This sounds like the normal factory compression for TI. Unless yo picked "no compression" when you back up an Image.
