    Can you manually delete images from the secure zone?

    I would like to keep my original image file, and not have it overwritten automatically.

    No. Image management is automatically controlled by TI. Make another image to a different location if you want to mange them your self. Create a backup location and then you set up the rules to do what you want.

    there isn't any way to delete a backup in the Secure Zone ? :rolleyes:

    So what do I do when the Secure ZOne is full?
    What about old backups that are not needed anymore?

    Providing you make full images from time to time automatic FIFO management will kick in. The oldest image will be deleted to make room for the newest one.

    You have set aside a secure zone volume and TI will do its best to utilise the space. Any unwanted images will eventually fall out the bottom as new ones are added.

    If you ever get an out of space error when running an incremental or differential do not panic. Just run a full image instead and FIFO will take care of it.
    At least that is how it works with all versions before TI 11. I did not keep that progam on my computer long enough to test its functionality in this area.

    You might try using Backup Locations instead of a SZ. It performs the same auotmated deletion function (even uses some of the same dlls, iirc) but doesn't require a special hidden partition so you can copy or delete the backup files anytime you want using windows Explorer.
