Dave,

Thanks, I would be interested to read as I use IFW as well but in a
different way than you suggest. For some reason, I did not see that post.
Could you forward to me?

Thanks,
Alan

See the reply, I have just posted to James.

I have use the I F W restore utility with both Talking Windows Preinstall
Environments. In both cases the utility is very easy to use by anyone who is
visually impaired.

Dave,

Excellent post. What I've always found is creating images is pretty blind
friendly. The problem comes when restoring the image. Have you tried
restoring as per below and is it possible without sighted assistance?

Thanks,
Alan

Randy:

The purpose for creating an image of your system drive, is that you bacup
everything which is stored on that drive, including the operating system,
any and all programs which you have installed, and any personal data, you
have stored on the drive. In addition, when you use an image backup program,
the partition and format information is also saved, so that, when you need
to restore an image. once it has been restored successfully, you restart
your computer, and your system boots into Windows in the condition it was,
when you created the image backup.

If you create a system image backup, including Incremental backups, when you
restore the system backup plus, any incremental backups, then the system
will be restore to the condition, when the last incremental backup was made,
when you restart the system.

So in a total failure of windows you have to reinstall windows first then
restore?

Yes...

first type in search...restore system and it will take you to the first
window again and it will ask where you want to restore from and you are
on your way, but remember to have that external drive hooked up and open.
