i just bought this software. a question for those who have it. in the documentation it says if you are making an image to cdrw from your hd with the system files the image will be written at boot time. i understand why this is so. my question is , when you restore the image to the hd, does it also do it at boot time. the documentation does not say anything about it. i think it would have to. can any of you who use this software emlighten me?

I have'nt used that software,,, But I've used Ghost...

It has to copy the files at boot or from a boot floppy or else it ca'nt get exclusive acces to files... To copy and restore them...

Yes, everything is done from outside the gui. If you haven't already created the Drive Image boot disks, do so now. If you ever have to restore, you'll boot to the cd with those floppies.

Also, you might want to think about creating an image of your boot drive and keeping it on another partition (assuming you have more than one partition).

CDs

Maybe I've had a different experience, but once I created the images onto the CDs, I was able to boot directly through the CD without the floppies to reinstall the image...maybe something I did in the settings, but I don't need the floppies to restore the images....hmmm.
