    On 6 January 2006, I posted the following under the title "Functionailty provided by TI 9". I just noticed that the thread has disappeared, so I will again post.
    ----------------------------------------
    In a number of threads, I and others, have been asking questions along the lines of "Is an image backup a true sector by sector backup?" and "Is not the backup really just a file-based backup bypassing the file system API?".

    Well, I, and I get the feeling others, are not yet satisfied by the answers.
    So, let's turn the questions around and ask HOW TI provides particular functionality, not what does XXX mean.

    So here goes:

    1. Is it possible to do a full sector by sector backup of a logical drive? How?
    2. If it is NOT possible to do a full sector by sector backup of a logical drive, just what sectors are omitted? How?
    3. Is it possible to do an incremental/differential sector backup of a logical drive for a sector backup created in 1 supra? How?
    4. Is it possible to do an incremental/differential sector backup of a logical drive for a sector backup created in 2 supra? How?
    5. For each type of incremental/differential sector backup, how are changed sectors tracked?
    Is such tracking done for each sector backup separately, or is there one tracking mechanism that applies to all sector backups?


    6 Same questions as in 1-5 supra, but apply to a hard drive, rather than to a logical drive.

    A. Is it possible to do a full file backup of a logical drive? How?
    B. If it is NOT possible to do a full file backup of a logical drive, just what files are omitted? How?

    C. Is it possible to do an incremental/differential file backup of a logical drive? How?
    D. If it is NOT possible to do an incremental/differential file backup of a logical drive, just what files are omitted? How?
    E. For an incremental/differential file backup, how are changes tracked?
    Is such tracking done for each backup set separately, or is there one tracking mechanism that applies to all backup sets?

    I think your very similar thread is:

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=112864

    As I posted in the above thread, experienced TI users know that it doesn't do true sector imaging. So why beat a dead horse?

    I sympathize with where you're coming from but you don't seem to realize yet that Acronis is NOT going to give you the definitive answers you seek no matter how many ways you frame your questions.

    :(

    No....your thread still exists as mentioned above by bobdat and beings those same questions are contained in that thread We can continue there.

    For that reason....this thread is closed.

    BTW....if by "disappeared" you mean your thread is now on page 7....not front and center....in the future Please do not start another thread for that reason.
