I am really glad I bought True Image 8 (the dutch version). Yesterday I installed a piece of software that would have created a virtual drive. However after booting XP-PS2 I looked at a blue screen. And in safe mode the same story. So I restored my image file and this was only a few days old. I restored some working files I backup every day and that was it! I am back in business. One question: making an image file from my laptop onlys takes 35 minutes and restoring the image took more than 4 hours! And all that time I did not know what the end result would be so I was rather nervous! Anyway, I use an external HDD of 250Gb (western digital) that works on the USB port. Do you know why this restoring took so long.
