I have been trying to resolve a problem where I get a Protection Warning saying "System Volume Backup: Not Created" when I start up Acronis with my external Hard drive, containing several full archives is powered on and ready. I even see a message saying "Analyzing Partition G:" which is my external HD during the startup of Acronis. For some reason, it does not recognize I have these archives available, creating this warning condition. In response to this problem, someone in support sent me an e-mail suggesting I install new "Snap API Drivers for Acronis" to see if it fixes my problem. They even sent me a URL to do this. The previous suggestion was to install build 2009.9788, which they sent me. After checking with this forum, I decided build was not the way to go at this time, because of some reported problems with it. I am afraid to just try different things with the possibility of bring on new problems. Is this protection warning condition where, if you don't have an archive present on the local HD, but have them on an attached and ready external HD, a known error condition? If so, I would rather wait for a know fix to this problem.
