Hello all, I purchased TI8 (build 826) a couple of days ago, and duly installed it on my computer, but during testing and familiarizing myself with the software, I have encountered a few problems. First, the hardware is an Asus P4C800-E Deluxe m/board with a P4 3.0 GHz cpu, a 120GB Seagate ATA drive partitioned into C:, D:, E:, and F: drives; 2 CD/DVD RW drives as G: and H:, and a 40GB Seagate ATA secondary drive for backup purposes as J:. The two hard drives are mounted in interchangeable drive bays. A further 40GB USB 2.0 outboard drive K: is connected as well. The OS is Win 2000 Pro, and the total software plus data on C: is about 10.7 GB. During testing and learning about TI8, I made image backups to D: (7 minutes), G: (DVD, about 17 minutes), and K: (USB 2, about 6 minutes). So far, so good. I then removed the C: drive, and fitted the D: drive in its place [so D: became C:], booted the emergency CD, and restored from the DVD to C:, which took about 11 minutes, very satisfactory. Then, I attempted to boot the computer from the newly restored drive. Problem number one surfaced. Part way through the boot process, I got a message telling me that the Paging File was either missing or too small. I knew it was missing, as TI8 specifies that it does not copy the paging file. But there appears to be no way to start 2000 without a paging file. Repeated attempts would not proceed past the same message. If I cannot get around this, there is no point in doing TI8 backups. Question number one: how do I get around this problem? Extensive Google searches failed to give an answer. Can I configure TI8 to back up the paging file? Then problem number two surfaced when I tried to restore from the USB drive via the emergency CD. The emergency CD simply does not recognise any USB connections, which means that I cannot use my outboard USB drive for image restore in the event that the C: drive crashes beyond repair - and the paging file problem is relevant here as well. What I want is a backup setup that is normally independent of the computer, so that in the event of a power surge, power supply failure, or any malfunction that takes out the entire computer, I can restore from a USB drive into another machine. Currently it appears that TI8 cannot do this. The 'bare metal restore' capability as mentioned in the sales write-ups is more limited than one would expect. I would be pleased if someone could either verify these problems are real, or if they can be fixed.
