Please help me out? My Dad has just bought TI8 (I use drive image 7) He can't backup directly to dvd however he can span a backup to his hard drive and then backup each segment individually to dvd. My question is, following a catastrophic disk failure or virus etc, can my Dad be confident that the Acronis boot disk will allow a full spanned restore? I realise that this may be a dumb question, but hey, if you don't ask, you don't learn! mtia, T.
