Currently, the trial version is for 15 days.dmullen said:Try Acronis True Image
you might like Acronis better. They have a trial version and is used to be fully functional for 30 or 45 days I think.
Not really sure what exactly you mean by the bootable image. True, you can not put the image on the same cd as the bootable program. True Image will create a bootable cd that will load the program. Then, after the program is loaded into memory, you can swap the cd for the one that contains your image file. I know, in Norton Ghost, you could put them all on one bootable cd.Curly said:I tried Acronis trial version. It does create incrementals as it should. However, it will not create an bootable CD. I have Ahead InCD installed, so I followed all the suggestions of creating a bootable Acronis rescue CD.
Nothing worked. I need a bootable CD to test these images -- this is a must. I'd hate to purchase ANOTHER backup image creater only to find out that the images don't work . . .
I just created a Bootable CD using Acronis True Image Trial.Curly said:How do any of these backup image creators -- Ghost, Acronis, Windows Backup -- know what files need to be backed up in an incremental. Is a (for a lack of a better term) master file that records the back up status of each file?
If so, maybe deleting it could solve my Ghost problem.
I didn't say "bootable image". I said bootable CD and image -- two entirely separate things. The bootable CD is used to boot a system that cannot boot into Windows so the image(s) can be restored.edbro9 said:Not really sure what exactly you mean by the bootable image.
I tried two CD/RWs and one CD -- all new, never used. What is an "unformatted" CD?EAFiedler said:... it was stated to use an Unformatted CD-R\RW.
Thanks for pointing out that site. At that site I found a thread that tells how to burn the image file onto a bootable CD/DVD. This does what everyone is asking for although it is not as automated as Ghost8.EAFiedler said:
