Can I use this to restore imgs created by TI9? (it wasnt in the FAQ)
It doesn't work on my system. I have three backup archives created with ATI 9.0.3633. I booted with Recovery Disk ATI 8.0.937 and tried to restore. I get the error message that the Backup Archive is Corrupt.
Oh...that error is common for ATI 8...I havent tried restoring in ATI 9 (thats a program flaw...tsk tsk... I guess lets wait for ATI 10
The normally accepted rule is that True Image is backward compatible with previous versions but not necessarily the other way around. This is even more so the case starting with TI 9.0 Home 3567, which introduced a completely different imaging engine and associated file structure.
Ive been reading around and it seems to be that the "corruption" errors are still present in the current version (not to diss ATI) ...but shouldnt that problem been eliminated by now? (hint hint progress update
Read around some more and you will see that there is no chance of TI eliminating the problem if its due to bad/too aggressively timed memory, poorly performing motherboard I/O chipsets or poorly performing external USB hard drive enclosure USB to IDE (or SATA) bridge chipsets .
so should we look for other software then? <snip>

. Not really. If the problem was being caused by faulty hardware, I would want to sort that out first rather than trying other software. Wouldn't you?
Anyway, this thread seems to be leading nowhere so I'll leave you to it.
