dos commands

  1. Hi,

    I'm testing TrueImage 8 to see if the product is right for us. Making and restoring an image in windows is well documented, but is it possible to create an unattended bootable CD/DVD to restore an image? I've found that the server version takes command line arguments but it's a win32 console app. I think we need a dos version for this.

    Has anybody done this before?

    Best regards,
    Merijn

    I'm currently working on the problem. i got a windows 98 bootable disk on a cd with the first volume of my backup. 650mb cd image. had to get a dos4g file to run the acronis dos command program in ver 8 corporate. trueimagecmddos.exe which i renamed for dos 8.3 filename. ran it from dos but always get a "failed to open image archive" error. my command is as follows

    dos4g.exe image.exe /deploy /harddisk:1 /filename:10feb051.tib /reboot

    i called it 10feb05 and it added the 1. i tried every variation of the command but it will not open.

    if i cannot get it working then it will be scrapped for something that works. which is unfortunate. i sort of like the bootable cd interface.
