You might have to uninstall & reinstall Acronis & you might need a patch to completely uninstall it too. I assume you still have the serial...
Well , one thing you have to do , is hook up the USB HD FIRST ,in case you didn't. Mine works that way with Ver. 10. Good luck.
I believe you should uninstall the older version 1ST & then install the newer one but not sure.
It (trial version) expires TODAY if you made it on the 8th ; that MIGHT or might NOT be your problem.
I have ver. 10 & that will backup whatever you leave in there. However I get rid of everything in it before I make a new backup. (WHY backup junk )?;D
Sounds like they're 'FAT 32 files' -that would cause it.
I'm not sure but think it counts the total files on both & see if the numbers match-not sure about that though.
Possibly , it might be on the Windows 'search'-not sure though.(Or on Ext. HD itself if it's plugged in.
You might try 'System Restore-works for s lot of them.
if it's the 'restore partition , I'd leave it on there so you can go back to that 'state (day you brought computer)' If you ever give it to...
Well , someone here far more knowledgeable than I should be along to help you-has me stumped ! Or try Acronis message chat-might help. Good luck!
You should be able to get it from 'My Computer', I would think.
Try diskchecker-might have bad sector or something. Maybe even system file checker for that matter-good luck!
Msconfig doesn't stop me but only have antivirus running st startup anyway-make sure Acronis is enabled & 'started' on services.msc-might help.
Are you using CDs for backups? It's generally the worst way to do it , if so.
Have some reading and do not know which one to choose for media storage for backup;
a. External USB Drive / Mini drive, (read about mechanical...
I couldn't have said it any better-ext. HD AND 8G flash drive work good for me!!
You should make a FULL backup of ALL drives .Be sure you 'validate it' though. Them simulate a restore of your "My computer"only until you get to...
I don't know WHERE offhand but they have a sale right before Christmas ; I got mine 2 years ago for $35. instead of $50. from Acronis...
Possibly could be your anti-virus stopping it....possibly.
actually all of mine are OFF & it works anyway despite that. Mine is set to "manual" so experiment with it-good luck!;D
It takes me 22 min. to back up 5.5 G with version 10 with a 3.5 yr. old Inspiron if that helps. Your's might be pretty good at that rate but not...
Did you validate it?
I'd put my serial number on Ext HD too! I.E. -everything else you need too!!:)
Isn't that the truth?? Saved mine in 1 1/2 years abut 16 times so far.;D
