Hi folks, Just purchase True Image 9 Home and read most of the users guide. I have searched these forums and read that some users have had difficulties recovering the Sony Recovery Partition, among other problems with the Sony. I have a Sony Vaio PCV-RS430G, with a 120 gig hard drive, with a recovery, C:, and D: partitions. So, I simply have 2 questions before I start using the software: 1. For those of you using the Sony Vaio (or any other computer for that matter), do you have any advice from your experience to create a successful image of the hard drive? Sort of the do's and don'ts. 2. Once created, is there any method other than doing an actual recovery to test the image to ensure it will work? I have read about the Check Backup Archive for Errors feature, I would like to know if there is any other method.
