You are very confident now and that is great to hear. There was a lot to learn.

When you can do these "backups in your sleep" let me know if you are interested in an automatic method. You can actually do an automatic backup at 3 am while you are asleep. At 3 am the computer would restart into IFL, run the backup and either restart or shutdown. Your choice. A log would be written to your HD so you could confirm everything happened correctly. No CD is needed. This would be ideal for a 4 hour entire drive image.

I just created a new XP (full) backup image.
"Img_B_Full_XP_..... date" (folder on external drive).

time = 8 minutes
file size on ext. drive (target) = 4,4 GB.
BUT:
I forgot to tick the option
"Speed up Changes Only Backup", so I have no Hash file  Roll Eyes

Shall I delete the backup and create it again ? > easily done.
Or leave as is ?
Will the backup be ok without hash file ?

note: In my *.doc
the option is even marked!!!
  Grin
Found several steps that need to be altered there, as the *.doc is still in its 1st edition. *Subject to modifications* Wink

I'd say we'd better wait for some time till I've tried all "variations" of backups on my *.doc list.

That will take some time! I also have to make alterations [cut shorter, more precisely/customized] in the *.doc + print etc.

Please remind me in 2-3 months, maybe  Smiley

I just noticed:

That won't be 'possible' because I'm living in a small room, where I sleep, eat, work, &&&!

I can't sleep - or will wake up - when the computer is ON.  Roll Eyes

You can create a hash file now with a batch file but the simpler solution for you is to delete the backup image and do it again.

The backup is OK without a hash file. It is just the future differential images will take longer to create.

AH! I actually °forgot° what the Hash file was for. Just knew I needed it. Thanks for reminding > will add it to the *.doc  Smiley

So I'm going to delete the last backup and create a new one.

I know you don't want to do this but to create a hash file without creating another backup you could do something like this from Terminal...

/tbu/imagel --hash --f:l1@0x1:"/your_folder/your_image.tbi"


Or you could mount the backup drive using the mnt icon. Then...

/tbu/imagel --hash --f:"/tbu/mnt1/your_folder/your_image.tbi"

I think the second one is easier as you don't need to confirm if l1@0x1 is correct.

I wish I was able to show off. It is pretty much a copy/paste from the user-guide.

Not sure if you know, but you may be working too hard!  You can have the forum software do this quoting for you automatically without having to type in the details manually like the *Reply #93 - Today at 14:50:49*.

See the row of buttons in the upper right hand corner of each post?  The first one says *Mark & Quote*.  If you highlight what you want to quote in a specific post, and then click the *Mark & Quote* button, the forum software will reference the author and show a direct link to the quoted information so if anyone wants to see where it came from, they can click on the link.  The forum software will put that in the reply box at the bottom of the page.

You can also reference posts in other threads as well.  I will often open a second instance of the forum, go to a different thread that has information I want to reference in the other thread that's open in my first instance of the forum.  I will highlight the information, use the *Mark & Quote* button which puts the information in the reply box at the bottom of the page in that second instance of the forum.  I then highlight that information in the reply box, and either *copy* or *cut* it, and then return to the first forum instance, and then *paste* that *Marked and Quoted* reference to the first thread.  Now, if someone clicks on that link, they will be taken to that other thread if they want to read more.

IF it were *only* copy/paste from user-guides - even in my native language - I wouldn't have come to even create the IFL-CD!
You guys are excellent in teaching tech stuff! Be it NightOwl who taught me [for years!] how to get *command* over Ghost ,,, or Brian who's providing support & guidance for IFL. ... Both of you with an extraordinary patience  Smiley

Is there any limitation of characters regarding  the file name length IN IFL ?

Now, that was absolutely new to me  Grin
Hope I got it right now > another lesson learned!

I can't speak for others, but on my computer--using the *dark blue* color for the font is impossible for me to read.  I have to *highlight* the text so the background is changed to light blue and the letter are then a white color.

I would recommend using the *default* white color on the *grey* background for better readability.  (Though, you may not be using the *default* forum colors--in your *Control Panel*, you can choose other options--if you have done this, then you may not see that the colors are hard to see in the *default* color scheme.  But, my guess is that using the *default* color in whichever forum scheme you are using will allow for better readability.)
