    I just got True Image 8.0 (most recent build), backed up my system and made a bootable CD. This is where I'm getting confused, tho - Is there any advantage to creating a Secure Zone? If I understand the manual, if I need to run the boot manager, a secure zone would be created if it wasn't there already. Am I missing something? Thanks!

    Personally, I haven't created a Secure Zone. Though I guess it would afford more protection of the backed up archive in that nothing would be accessing the folder containing the archive other than TI, it is probably unnecessary unless someone else uses your machine and might inadvertently delete an archive file. It really just creates a new partition that is specifically for archiving.

    Thanks, Elvandil - That helps a lot! opopanax, I'm not reinstalling the operating system - Just backing everything up. But I wasn't sure if creating a Secure Zone would help if I need to reinstall everything some time in the future.
