    We are just getting started with TI9, using it for nightly backup of system volumes in a small company. We have it deployed so far on only 5 machines, ranging from NT4 to W2K Pro to XP Pro, as we watch for problems.

    We have noticed 2 things so far. First, the scheduled jobs do not always run. Each machine is set up in TI9 to do an image of C: to a network drive at 11:59 PM, and we never know each day which machines will actually do it and which will not. The machine with the clock set to display time in 24-hr format seems to fail more often than the others.

    Has anyone else noticed this scheduler erraticness, and if so, did you find a workaround for it?

    Is there a way to trigger TI9 images from the command line? If so, we could use the regular Windows scheduler and a BAT file.

    Second, there have been "lost delayed-write data" errors on some of the machines using TI9, but the machines still seem to work okay and CHKDSK still seems happy. I have noticed another posting referring to something like this, and will do a little more research before posting more on this issue.

    Despite these issues, we are still very impressed so far with how well TI9 works, and we like the fact that we can get both an image backup and file-level backup in one operation, with the machines running.

    Thanks.
