I recently had to format my hard disk and spent about a week re-install my programs. This experience caused me to look for programs that would allow me to recover the programs without going through the re-install process. After some research and looking at reviews of several programs, I purchased TI. Now I have a concern; will TI really recover my system if disaster strikes again? I read several posts on Wilders Security Forums that casts some doubt in my mind. I would like to hear the good and bad experience from anyone that used TI to update the system and or recovered the system after a program of disk failure. To test the program, I made an image backup to an USB hard disk of my C partition that contains the operating system and programs. I booted from the TI recovery disk ok. I got as far as “Please Select Partition” and I selected my backup image and then everything froze. I repeated the test and it froze again at the same point. I then started TI after booting up in windows and ran through the recovery process without a problem but stopped at “Proceed” point. Thanks for your response.
