I had no problem creating a disk image on a firewire external drive. The idea being to restore that to another identical computer. Sounds easy enough, doesn't it? Well, I can't seem to do this when running TI on the other computer. After making a bootable CD I find that there is no way to recognize the external drive, whether it is attached by firewire or USB. And thus no way to restore an image from it. I'm now reformatting and repartitioning the external drive. But its 120 GB and everytime I try anything with TI it takes forever just to assess the disk. When it can find it at all. Disk Director will take a couple hours to reformat it now. What should be a fairly simple process has left me $50 and several hours worth of time in the hole. I am not impressed with this product so far. Nor with the support - I have to register for a forum and look for help here? Or pay yet more money? Is there any trick to using an external drive? After all, thats the most likely place people will want to put an image.
