What is the function of the safe mode restore functionality; is my experience normal? Using TrueImage Home v. 9 (currently the second the last built), I had saved two full backups to the SecureZone. Each of them failed at about the middle of the restore process, with the message that he archive was corrupted. Similarly with restoration when I started from an emergency disk. Finally, I tried the safe mode restore, which succeeded by required more than 7 hours for the restoration as compared with less than one hour ordinarily using the full program. Does anyone know why the restore would work using the safe mode, but not the full program? In a way I'm relieved. Perhaps it is over-optimistic, but I have the sense that maybe with the safe mode the problem with frequent corrupted archives, even in the SecureZone, may be solved. I know these archives are NOT generally corrupted, because 1) sometimes the same archive will work and at other times fail, even using the full program; and 2) what would corrupt them? They are isolated from software operation, and if some hardward defect was frying files, surely this result would not be restricted to True Image archives. Even so, seven hours to restore a 40 GB disk is no longer convenient. It seems to vitiate the slogan "Compute with Confidence."
