I have a copy of Acronis Disk Director I purchased to re-partition my drives. I also have a copy of Acronis True Image I'm evaluating. I've managed to lock my desktop with both programs. I did experience the 37 minute load for Disk Director and, but after searching here I disabled The Distributed Link Tracking Service and that has resolved the problem with both programs. Unfortunately I have been unable to back up my hard drive. When I attempt to it starts and then locks the desktop. I have a cursor and sometimes I can CTRL-ALT-DEL to a BSOD, but I always have to reset. I wondered if there was something wrong with my partitions, so I pulled up the Disk Director, checked properties on one of my partitions and saw the red error. I clicked on that and it processed for a while and then my desktop froze again. Are there any suggestions?
