    While Acronis is doing its thing, is it OK to sue the PC, or will that create problems...

    Hi, arf1410


    It should not, BUT anything can cause a problem.

    PS:You do mean use, not sue don't you. o_O

    Take Care,

    The only systems that I DONT use during imaging are those that are data intensive, like Mail Servers or Database Servers. Normal system use should not cause any issues.

    In theory yes, but I don't. I go get a cup of coffee or tea or have a Coke. On a fast system, there should be no problem when burning directly to a CD or DVD, but if you get involved in a disk intensive activity such as downloading a file, etc., you might mess up the backup. CheckImage should identify an image corrupted by excessive use of the system, so run it to confirm that there were no problems.
