I've been evaluating TrueImage 9.0 by doing a backup on DVD's. Lot's of problems. The image is split into multiple files on two DVD's. There are three files on the first DVD and two on the second DVD. During the backup, the program instructs one to mark the first DVD as 'Volume 1". There is no instruction for marking the second. I've deduced that the first DVD contains volume 1, volume 2, and volume 3 and the second contains volume 4 and volume 5. The so-called 'volumes' are logical descriptors which are simply associated with the files on the DVD's. During a 'check archive' operation therefore when the program asks one to insert volume 4, one must know that volume 4 is resident on DVD #2. A bit confusing at the onset and this should be fixed in the program. It should inform the user to either label the first DVD disk "volumes 1,2,3" and label the second DVD disk "volume 4 and 5" or use the physical DVD number when it asks one to insert one or the other. During a restore operation for a single file, it is especially annoying because in addition to the above problem, where the program will ask the user to insert volume 3 or volume 2 or volume 5 which is ridiculous, one must constantly switch back and forth between physical DVD disks. I gave up after switching the DVD's a dozen times or more! This is just to retrieve one file! Is this the way TrueImage is supposed to work? My impression is that it is poorly engineered and buggy if that is the case. Is there a patch? Is there and acceptable tried and proven use model for DVD-based backup and restores? Perhaps one should simply not do a direct backup and restore from DVD's. So far this has absorbed far more time to do a simply operation that should be a no-brainer than a version 9.0 program should ever require.
