Hi, my question is about using TI8 (903) for backing up a new HP Media Center Desktop with 400GB internal drive. Other posts have said creating a bootable recovery requires imaging the whole DISK (c) OS/Data and (d) HP Recovery, so that's what I've done and it looks about like this... Disk 0: 364GB Partition (c) XP MCE OS/Programs/My Docs etc [16GB used] and the 8GB Partition (d) HP_Recovery [7.2GB used] Wouldn't it be preferable to create separate partitions with an ablity to image and restore each one independently with TI? For example (using rough #s): 32GB Operating System/Program Files (bootable) 40GB My Documents, Pictures etc... 150GB Music Library 150GB Recorded TV I think there's a way to burn Recovery CDs and eliminate the need for HP's Recovery partition, but I'm not sure how to move the OS/Programs etc.. to a bootable partition so it can be imaged and restored to a bootable state on it's own without having to include HP's Recovery partition in the image. Is there a straightforward way of doing this with TI? Thanks in advance for any feedback or suggestions. Other System Notes: I also have a newly installed and unpartitioned 300GB internal drive and Partition Magic 8. If there's a good reason to use Acronis Disk Director Suite 9 (better interoperability with TI?), I'll gladly consider it.
