    Hi,

    XP Pro
    C: 181 GB, 11.5 GB used
    G: 57.2 GB, 34.5 GB used (backup internal HD)

    On G:, I see my original TI done with a tech person:
    0213051.tib 4,194,300 KB TI BU
    0213052.tib 4,194,300 KB TI BU
    0213053.tib 2,913,077 KB TI BU

    I also see one I did later alone:
    072605full1 4,194,304 KB File
    072605full2 4,194,304 KB File
    072605full3 3,203,015 KB File

    I *think* the tech person created a partition. (o_O)

    1. What's the difference between these True Images?
    2. I would like to transfer one of them to a DVD to make space on the G: HD for an updated TI.

    Can either one be transferred to a DVD? Should the original remain on the backup HD?

    Is there a special transfer process, and does it differ for the two different TI's I have?

    Thanks,

    JW

    Transfer (move image to a CD)

    I'd appreciate knowing why my question wasn't answered, so that in the future I can ask questions more intelligently.

    I'm using TI 8.0 build 937.

    The manual mentions Roxio DirectCD as one of the programs that will burn True Images to CD's. I have Roxio 6.2, and even 7.5 doesn't mention DirectCD. I think it's been discontinued.

    The Acronis web page mentions that True Image can burn images (does that mean existing images already on the HD?) but I don't see a way to do that.

    Thanks,

    JW

    Hello JW,

    Use the two-step method to burn the 3 existing .tib files as data compilations to 3 blank, unformatted, DVD+R or DVD+/-RW disks. Note, however, that with .tib files of your size you will need to burn them as DVD-ROM (UDF) compilations rather than DVD-ROM (ISO) as an ISO disk has a 2000MB max file size limit.

    See also my reply to your post in the thread titled <How to backup on CD>.

    Regards
