I recently acquired TI Home 10 and so far I think it is excellent. I have a question about Recovery Manager & Secure Zone. If I have a second disk (internal or external) then I would would probably choose to create my backup on that disk rather than on my system disk. Right? If this is the case then I don't need a secure zone but I still want to use recovery manager for distaster boot up scenarios. The problem is that TI doesn't allow you to activate Recovery Manager without a secure zone. So what should I do? Create a secure zone but just don't use it? How much space should I allocate if I do this - 0mb? Its not a major issue just looking for best practice advice. The other question I have is about hot backups. I assume the safest way to perform system disk backups is through Recovery Manager rather than through full windows GUI? Is this a fair statement? Thanks.
