    Hello,
    I purchased image for windows today.

    Awhile ago Brian K gave me code for a batch file as follows: (btw i edited the path name since i use 64bit vista)
    if not defined RunTask set RunTask=1 & start "Image for Windows" /min %SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe /c "%0" & goto :EOF

    path=C:\Program Files (X86)\IFWC;%path%

    Z:
    CD \IFW images

    imagewc /b /d:w0@0x1 /f:C /uy /vb

    if not %errorlevel% == 0 (
    echo %date% %time% >> fail.log
    echo Imagew errorlevel is %errorlevel% >> fail.log
    echo. >> fail.log
    exit
    )
    exit

    the imaging Works fine with the console version.
    Scheduled tasks work great.
    I want to do one of the following:
    1. Name all images C.tbi for backing up C: and have IFW create a subdirectory every day in Z:\IFW images
    2. Name each image by the day of the week and store the images in Z:\IFW images with no subdirectory.

    I do have one problem. when creating the image programs react very slowly and appear to have locked up. then suddenly all spring in to action. I will contact TeraByte Unlimited about that tomorrow.

    lodore,

    I can answer that one. Sort of. See p72 of the userguide for a partial explanation. In batch files you will need extra %. So your command line would be...

    imagewc /b /uy /d:w0@0x1 /f:"C %%~MM%%-%%~DD%%" /vb

    It's recommended to have /uy follow the /b or /r switch.

    Today's image would be C 11-07.tbi

    Is this at the start? Before the imaging commences? How long does it take before imaging commences?

    No acually the start is fine. It is just when the image is being created and verifyed.

    I'd expect so. You can also have YYYY and HHMM if you want. I just noticed you can have DOW (three character day of week).

    Yup.
    I am going to email TeraByte Unlimited about the freezing of programs during imaging and aslo why psylock can take anything from 30seconds to 5minutes 30seconds.

    Hey Aaron,
    I have used Paragon for a long time now. it hasn't let me down. I would still recommend paragon to anyone.
    one of the reasons for buying image for windows was that the boot disc loads alot faster than the paragon one.
    Another reason was the fact that it also comes with Image for linux.

    lodore,

    I've been playing with IFL networking. Imaging and restoring over the network. By far the easiest network CD I've used. No knowledge of Linux is required and almost no knowledge of networking is required.
