True Image 8 (build 785) When installing XP (sp2) on my system if rather kindly handed me the following setup; C:\ my spare drive for data (13gb) D:\ DVD-R E:\ CDR-RW F:\ System Drive (81gb) i.e the one where XP decided to reside. Ok at the time I considered this was strange, but then Microsoft has always done unexpect things! Well the scenario or problem is that when you test the full boot disk (CD-RW)I get the following setup recognised C:\ System drive (81gb) i.e the one where XP decided to reside. D:\ my spare drive for data (13gb) E:\ CDR-RW In fact the E:\ drive depends on which CD I boot up from in the bios, but alas it will only find the one. The the important question is that if I've taken and image of F:\ from the windows True Image running, I cannot rescue it to F:\ drive when the boot disk is run Does this mean this image is usless? would a image taken when the the DOS application is running be a better option? but again all the drive letters differ to the drives presented when XP is running? Guess you see the dilemma, don't wish to sit here smug thinking I've got my bases covered when the harsh reality of a system crash will provide good evidence that I haven't!!! PS I guess cordless mice are a bit difficult to get to work from the boot CD as well, not that tabbing won't get you around, just not used to it these days?
