Anything you can offer to answer these question would be appreciated. I've never used any imaging software until now. (1) I recently installed Windows XP on a new laptop and decided to image it with TI. First, I made the bootable Restore Disk (sorry if that's not the exact title) with TI; then I backed up everything on that drive on a number of CD's. Unfortunately, I then realized I needed to reconfigure my laptop and totally reinstalled the OS, etc. Is the bootable Restore Disk that I made initially pretty much generic to work with any imaging done after reconfiguring the computer (i.e., in my case, I had to set up my partitions differently). I'm assuming it would/should, but I just want to be extra cautious. (2) After reinstalling the OS, I tried to image the partition again (this time a bit bigger than the first). I got 6 CD's finished, and on the 7th TI stopped, indicating that there was a problem (the error message mentioned something about possibly being corrupt media) and offered to start all over again, with the FIRST disk, even though I had the first 6 CD's, which I assume were just fine, completed. Is that normal behavior? I'm not too thrilled at the idea of investing that much time, as well as the CD's to image a partition and then find that I have to start all over again. (3) I have also decided that I need to record to DVD instead of CD to minimize the number of disks involved, etc. I have done some looking around and found that one of the disk burners recoommended by Acronis is Pinnacle, which was bundled with some of the software I purchased with my laptop. Now, can anyone tell me how to backup to DVD, using the combination of TI and Pinnacle? I'm a newbie to imaging software AND DVD burning, so detailed instructions would be great. Thanks.
