When I try to recover using an image made from anything but sector to sector it starts ok and within a minute it throws up an error message and I cannot recover. The one exception to this is when I use the recovery disk I made from V11. For some reason that works when trying to recover using the very same image. I would prefer to use the "non" sector by sector image because a) it takes less time b) I can exclude certain files making the image smaller and c) it makes the image smaller because it seems using sector by sector captures the entire partition even the blank space. In V10 I believe you did use the "non" sector by sector approach but it worked fine...can you tell me what has changed and is there anything I can do about it. I don't really want to go back to V10 if I can make V11 work but I have to be able to rely on it.
