    Hello,I Am Having Problems With A Second Computer I Have,Is The Hard Drive So I Will Be Replacing With A New Maxtor Drive So My Question Is:

    My Current Drive Is A IBM 7200 RPM - 8MB Cashe - 80GB
    The New Drive I Have Purchased Is A Maxtor 7200 RPM - 8MB Cashe - 80GB

    The Question Is : Can I Use My Created Image (True Image :cool: Of The IBM Drive Whole Drive Partition And Restore This Image To The New Maxtor Drive

    I Prefer To Use True Image Restore Rather Than Disk Clone As I've Heard Their Are A Few Problem With Disk Clone

    Or If Not Possible To Use The Restore Partition Can I Use The Image File And Choose Restore Drive Excluding Partition?

    Yes. That's what you want to do. The size or brand of hard drive doesn't matter.

    Hello Jbmoar,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Yes, you can use the "Create Image" wizard to create an image and then restore it to the new hard drive.

    We recommend you to use the "Clone Disk" wizard. Please disconnect one of the drives after cloning because Windows may work improperly when it finds two identical drives.

    Thank you.
