    Some more info...

    1. From Terabyte Unlimited about using the encryption: http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/kb/article.php?id=462

    2. From Terabyte Unlimited on VSS:

    "•Use Microsoft's Volume Shadow Copy service (VSS) instead of PHYLock. To do this, enable the Use VSS When Available option in Image for Windows (this doesn't require a reboot). You must be running Windows 2003 or later."

    I do, yes...I have talked to support about it before (Phylock vs. VSS) and Phylock seems more stable than VSS for most people. I would GUESS most people on here using IFW are using Phylock as well. If I am wrong, I am sure we'll hear about it. :)

    IFL GUI. I'm stunned by the change. It has a dock incorporating

    IFL
    OSDTool
    Copy P2V
    TBOSDT
    TBIView
    net1
    mnt
    Editor
    Midnight Commander
    True Crypt
    Terminal

    Although I was quite happy with the keyboard type IFL, the new IFL is impressive.

    Although of geek value, IFL is the only app I know that can do an automated restore between two wireless NIC computers where the image is stored on the remote computer. Doing it with wired NIC computers is easier.

    For those interested in encryption. IFL can restore an image that is still in a True Crypt container. The image doesn't have to be removed from the container in Windows before using IFL.

    Backup To/Select File Access Method: When would you select the File (OS) option rather than File (Direct) option?

    In the past I have always used either File (Direct) or File (CD/DVD).

    Use File (OS) when you need to access the booted Linux file system. For example, when you have mounted a network share to /tbu/net1 and want to save the backup image there. The same is true for accessing partitions mounted to the Linux file system (like /tbu/mnt1).

    IFL GUI has a problem when restoring an image,the time is an hour behind.

    acuariano,

    I checked an IFL CD on two computers. The GUI time was correct on both and the file times are in GMT as you know and they were correct on both computers. Strange. Anyone else notice a time issue?

    I had IFL installed to the HD on one of the above computers and the times were correct when IFL booted. IFL boots quickly from the HD.

    i use drive image for windows 2.6
    can't find the changelog between 2.6 and 2.8 :(
    and i use the active winpe to backup and restore
    can it backup and restore truecrypt or DiskCryptor?
    should i use special setting to backup and restore?

    can backup and restore them?

    IFL has True Crypt if you want to use it. I don't use True Crypt to store images.

    True Crypt is just an add on for IFL. You can use True Crypt or not. See Message #81 for the other add ons.

    Version 2.69 - February 4, 2012
    Changed optical drive access to limit retries on Unit Attention to prevent hang caused by virtual (software based) CD drives reporting incorrect sense codes for unsupported commands.
    Changed PHYLock to prevent possible dead-lock under certain conditions.
    Changed byte-for-byte validation to not abort when read-errors occur (attempts validating across bad sectors).
    Allow /email option to use a cached password saved with the /login option.
    TBIView 4.27 added option to Continue on Error.
    Other Misc.

    There is also TeraByte OS Deployment Tool Suite Pro for BootIt. It adds partitioning to the Tool.

    For example, the following script will remove the SRP (System Reserved Partition) from a Win7 computer...

    mount 1: 3 0x01
    mount 2: 3 0x02
    copy 1:Boot\* 2:Boot\ /s
    copy 1:bootmgr 2:
    umount 1:
    del partition 3 0x01
    umount 2:
    set part active 3 0x02
    slide 3 0x02 0 /a=2048
    resize 3 0x02 /a=2048
    reboot

    The booting files are copied from the SRP to the Win7 partition
    The SRP is deleted
    Win7 partition is set Active
    Win7 is slid to remove the 100 MB of unallocated space preceding the partition
    Win7 is resized to remove the 100 MB of unallocated space following the partition

    I like the new image for linux GUI. only tryed it the other day. ive used image for linux and image for windows for years now and it hasnt let me down.
    im glad no bloat is ever added. btw i use VSS and not phylock. i find that phylock takes longer to be ready.
