At least in previous versions of TI (in theory) if a bad directory sector or invalid partition table was discovered, then TI would kick into sector based imaging mode and backup EVERYTHING, is this still the case? Or better yet, is there a way to get TI9.1 to shift into a sector by sector mode via a command line option (from the restore CD)? Actually, I could even live with it if there was simply a way to tell TI to *NOT* exclude the Hibernation file and paging files -- for debugging purposes I will often hibernate a machine with a running application in a specific (bad) state that I need to be able to come back to later. With old versions of TI this worked fine, but with new ones it does not. [actually, for a different reason I would still like to have a sector by sector based option -- i.e. if I am doing a backup for forensic purposes that I may need to run recovery tools on later or when I am backing up one of the few old DOS/Win31 based machines I have that have protected applications on them that store data in "out of bounds" areas of track 0] I have no problem with adding nifty new features, but at the least give us the ability to turn them off if they break previous functionality! As a last case solution, the old versions of TI6-8 I have work fairly well for most things (TI6 worked the best actually) but the boot CD's will no longer work on almost any platform I have. Could Acronis *PLEASE* release updated versions of some of their past versions just built on top of a newer version of the Linux boot platform -- i.e. same application, new boot kernel/drivers. As a software engineer myself, I imagine it would be almost trivial to have a copy of an old version of TI stored on the current restore CD and accessible via a boot time option.
