    Hello all,

    I recently rediscovered my old friend drive snapshot. I forgot how I liked it. I prefer to use the scripting ability that drive snapshot offers, but I'm having a little trouble updating my script. Tom suggests that the disk image be verified as part of another step in the script file, and not directly after the disk image has been created (the -T command). He recommends this especially be done in script files. The problem is I cannot figure how to accomplish this without inadvertently imaging my disk second time. Hopefully someone will be able to help me.

    The below script is what I am currently using. It works fine, but it does not follow Tom's suggestions.

    Does anybody know how to alter my scripts to accomplish what Tom suggests be done?

    Thanks. But I've already read that page, which is how I know that Tom suggests the verification command be run separate from image creation (more than just using the -T switch). He says "However (in particular in batchfiles) it's probably better to test the image separately." To me that mean verifying the image after creation and not just with the -t switch. Am I wrong?
