Hello ALL: After my issues with Acronis, I tried a few FREE programs. I found that they are much faster than TI9 or TI11 ever were! So, if I use Reflect Free (ver 5.1.5732) and tell it to back up Windows partition(s) and system, will I be able to get my system running if the HDD crashes and I put a new one in of at least that size? Actually, can I use a smaller one if it is at least big enough to do the restore plus some room? I have a 250GB HDD now but only 47GB is in use. I guess I need to create the WINPE rescue media as I back up to RAID and the Linux media does not see that. I am surprised that the WINPE downloads a 1.6GB iso! OH, I use XP PRO.
