    Hi, I have installed a Acronis True Image Trial. I am trying to make a disk image of another drive that it on an XP peer to peer network.

    I have complete rights to access the drive, and I can see the drive on Windows Explorer. But, when I am on the create image wizard, I cannot see my network drives, even though I have mapped it. I can only see my local drive!

    I assume you need the server version to image a network drive. TI can't do it.

    If the trial Ti allows you to make a boot cd then you can boot the other box with that and create and save your image files on a connected computer.

    Hello losgn,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Brian K is correct, since Acronis True Image 8.0 allows you to create an image of the local hard drives only. Using Acronis True Image 8.0 you can save your images to the network drives, but not to backup these drives.

    If you are interested in the remote backup feature which allows you to install the special program called Acronis Agent to a remote machines and then perform the backup process remotely from one main machine using Acronis Management Console then I recommend you to use Acronis True Image Corporate Workstation 8.0 for your purposes.

    We recommend you to download and install the free trial version to see how the software works on your computer.

    You can find more information on how to use Acronis True Image Corporate Workstation 8.0 in the respective User's Guide.

    If you have any further questions please feel free to ask.

    Thank you.
