    Hi, is it possible to create an ISO backup on the HD, for that later burning on DVD's with Roxio, it's not so clear in the TI guide.

    Thx in advance.

    If you have a file, you can burn the file to a CD with Roxio, Nero, or built in Windows software. With windows, it's about as easy as drag and drop. What part don't you understand?


    Or with ATI you can make a backup image directly to a CD or DVD. What part of the manual did you not understand? There isn't much point recounting every step if you are totally unfamiliar with working on PCs. However, if you have some familiarity with PCs then probably some point or other was confusing.

    I want to put on the HD a certain backup of a certain partition with TI. The intention is to copying that to DVD's. I think that the backup, existing on the HD, must have an ISO extention or maybe is it a TI ext., before to backup on DVD's, isn't? I want to do so because it's faster for make BU on DVD's.

    The True Image backup Image will have a .tib extension. To burn the Image to dvds after making it, during the process of making the Image, specify a split size - many like to use 1492mb as three of these fit nicely on a dvd with very little waste.

    Afterwards, burn the splits to dvds with your burning software of choice.

    If you have an iso file, that is an data CD image and you can use Nero or other CD burners to put that image on a CD. If you have any other files, you can use Nero, etc. to to burn those files onto a CD (in effect, it creates an iso image, containing your data files, and burns that to the CD).
