I seem to be having a very strange issue with TI 8. This issue has only started happened recently; in the last three weeks or so. Lately TI seems to be taking a lot of time when validation the partition (or drive) and restoring an image. When validating TI takes about fifteen minutes and to restore it takes three hours or more. These operation usually take 30 sec and six minutes respectively. The CD image of TI does the same with with images created recently but not with images creates before the three + weeks. I have reinstalled and still have the same issues. I did have a harddrive crash and now have switched to another physical drive. Any ideas?
