I often get corrupt TIB files when creating partition images under the windows interface from one HDD partition to another HDD partition. However, if I boot the Linux version, imaging the same partitions is always successful and the verification from both the boot disk and under XP is OK. The process of creating the backups is noticeably faster from the boot disk as well. With only a single HDD on my system, I've been creating 2GB sized images and then archive them, two TIBs at a time to 8x DVD+R at 4x burn speed on blank media. Nero Express burns them just fine. Now when I run the verification on these DVD+R stored images, starting with the last DVD+R, TI 8 dutifully prompts for each disk in sequence and the result is always a corrupt notification at the finish. This verification takes a long time too. So they were not corrupt on the HD, but become corrupt when burned? Another big disappointment has been my failure to burn a full disk archive straight to DVD+Rs formatted with Roxio's drag-to-disc. The DVD burn process within TI8 fails every time. This is with Sony 8x rated media and a brand new LG 4163BI burner with the lastest firmware (A102). Until I install another HD in this box, I'm sad to say this software is too flaky to support DVD+R archiving and is useless to me. I did try archiving to a network drive, but aborted the process when I realized it would take many hours over a 100Mb/s LAN connection. This is sad because the promise made by all the tech media pundits is that TI8 is the answer for quickly restoring a failed system back onto a hard drive without all the hassle of rebuiding from scratch. The hype notwithstanding, here in the real world TI 8.0 is beta software.
