Just wondering, how does True Image do a backup of a drive WHILE running XP from that drive successfully? Is it safe to do it this way? It kind of puzzles me. I was previously using the Ghost boot disk for backups, but it decided to start hanging when I booted from it, so I took a workmates advice and started using True Image. True Image doesnt detect the SATA RAID card I use, when booting from CD like Ghost did, so I have to do backups from in Windows. My workmate has had no problems doing backups with TI from in windows and hes been using it for years. I just cant understand how it can copy files which are in use by the operating system, and the OS doesnt block it from trying it at all... Is it worth going through all the effort and making a BART disk and adding my drivers? Are there cases of problems happening from doing backups while in XP?
