    Many people come to the forum seeking help with the basics of True Image Home. With that in mind, I felt there was a need for these two guides:
    Many simply use True Image Home as a system backup and recovery program. Therefore the above two pdf's cover the basic "how to" steps in creating and restoring a full disk archive, plus a bit more. Whilst the instructions have been written around TI 9.0 Home Build 3666, they apply equally as well to TI 10.0 Home."

    The guides are directed toward those with basic needs and who, at this point in time, are unable to fully digest 81 pages of the official Acronis TI9 user manual. Plus, Acronis offers the 124 page fully illustrated tutorial which offers help to those with more exacting requirements.

    I hope you will find my guides useful and will recommend them to others!

    Special thanks goes to Menorcaman for his willingness to help me properly present these Beginner's Guides. His help involved a lot of his time and was invaluable. My guides are much improved due to his diligence.

    If you are new user of True Image Home, perhaps these additional tips may be of assistance.

    1. Do create a full disk image backup as soon as possible. Before you do, however, download my beginners guides referenced above. The guides can help explain your procedures.

    2. Do Not install the ."Manage Acronis Secure Zone" or "Activate Acronis Startup Recovery" functions until you have done research on how these functions work. Many people refuse to use these functions while others find them helpful

    3. In addition to the normal searching of other links for specific topics, check into link "L2" above. Each time the thread is updated, additional information is provided.
