I have been using ATI 9.0.3677 on an HP Pavilion desktop with Windows XP Home SP2 for several months now. I haven't had any real problems, and have even restored my entire PC a couple of times as an "easy way" to get rid of spyware. After all this time, I am finally just now trying to take the time to fully learn the program. Question: If I am understanding correctly, one can use the Bootable Rescue Disc in place of the Startup Recover Manager. Is this right? I turn my PC off daily, and could live without the extra several seconds of the "Press F11" option during boot. Or could I possibly find myself in trouble if I disable Recovery Manager? Further, CAN I disable Recovery Manager, now that I have been using it? I ask because I read that when it is enabled for the first time, it changes the MBR; something that I imagine is critical to the system. The two times that I restored my PC, I did so by re-booting, and then pressing F11 at the appropriate prompt. Also, while I have your attention, if I may: I would like to backup my entire PC on discs. Do I simply select "E:" instead of "Acronis Secure Zone"? (E: is my disc drive.) Can I use DVD-RW (my drive supports them)? Do I need to (or should I) include "ATI (Full Version) and/or "Acronis One-Click Restore" on my backup disks? Finally, my PC consists of approximately 15 GB. Can anyone make an educated guess as to about how long this will take? I hope that these are not too many questions for one post. ALL assistance is appreciated, even if only some of my questions can be addressed. Thank you to all who take the time to reply.
