I have paid for True Image, but I do not have any way to make reliable back ups. I tried to use True Image 9.0.2277 from within windows (not using the rescue cd) to create a full disc image about 4GB in size to an external hard drive. It took 45 minutes, and the same image creation I used to do to the secure zone used to only take about 4 minutes. Also, when I then try and verify it, it says it's a currupt image ("Error E00070020 The archive is currupted"). Anyone know why the image creation is taking so long now, and why the images always verify as currupt?
