I like many other users in this forum experienced problems when attempting to create/restore data backups using ATI 11 and would find that the software would regularly hang when used with a usb hard disk drive. I do not use the windows version instead opting to use the bootable rescue media for all my backup needs as I prefer using the software this way. However the regular hangs when using the software meant that it was virtually unusable and so I decided to throw the disc in the litter after stomping on it. I found the software would even hang when using the erase feature to wipe a hard disk. Anyway, after a few months without a backup solution I have decided to return to check out ATI 2009. No other software I've tried offers the features I have been looking for with mainly the ability to be able to boot into a safe environment in which to create and restore backups. So I am curious as to those of you whom already have ATI 2009 and have used the bootable rescue media think. Have the hangs finally gone when creating/restoring backups to a usb device? I would appreaciate your responses as I would like to return to using a backup solution.
