Hello I was about to buy true image 11 before I ran across this forum. What if you were only interested in making a disk image of your entire hard drive once a mouth or so, in case of catastrophic failure. And did not care about scheduling backups, or try & decide, or secure zone, or any other bells and whistles. Do you think TI11 would perform better if it were to run as a stand alone program? Do not install, but boot from the cd that comes in the boxed version. It seems that if your internal hard drive fails your going to boot from the cd anyway. Maybe some of the problems are from backing up in a windows environment and then trying to restoring in Linux. I don’t know. It seems that most of the issues could be avoided if you do not install the program. You can always copy your day to day files to your external drive. I know it is supposed to work as advertised, but until Acronis get there act together, this mite be a way to get the job done. What do you think?
