If I am going to be making images using TI8 on a regular basis , why would I also want to use a file based backup? It appears that I can mount the image and recover files and folders as well as restore the entire partion(s). What advantage would using a file based backup software provide? I understand that file based programs have include/exclude selection to customize what gets backup. But if I am already creting images I already have ALL the data, or at least all the data thats in the partion. I will admit that TI8 could do a better job of house keeping and logging the backup in non secure zones. It should delete incremental files in non secure zones when a new full backup is made. TI8 could use a little more work in its ability to manage rotating backup concepts.
