You will need to keep the full backup, and the latest differential.
Just to be on the safe side,...
Can you see the other computer's hard drive in your My Computer folder?
If so, then save what you want there.
If not, you'll need to "map" the...
You can probably get away with it only if they have exactly the same chipset, graphics, drivers, etc.
Otherwise, things will get corrupted.
There's probably no correct answer (unless Menorcaman is around).
I create 3-4 incrementals before doing a complete backup again.
It's only one...
The only way it might work is if they had the exact same CPU/Motherboard/chipset/drivers, etc.
Yours are different.
Are you running a background defragger like Diskeeper or Perfect Disk?
If you are, since the drive is constantly changing, the incremental backups...
Keep the original drive as the master, and put the new replacement drive as the slave.
Then clone the old drive over to the new one.
I would put the new drive in as the slave.
Then switch jumpers after it's done and boot to the new drive.
Is it a new IDE HDD?
Did you partition/format it?
Are the jumpers correct on the HDD and CDRW?
Is it recognized in Windows Explorer?
Yes. That's what I do.
I usually keep the last 3 or 4 backups and delete anything older.
Hope things are well.
The file created is an image, a .tib file.
It can't be booted. It's not an .iso.
You must have a boot CD created from the software, boot from...
It would be much easier, I think, to just clone your C: to the new 120 GB drive, swap drives and only leave your new 120 drive and boot to it to...
If you tell it to restore the partition and not the drive letter, it should give you the option to resize.
You are basically done.
Create a recovery boot disk from inside Acronis.
Boot to this disk and make sure you can see your backup.tib file on...
Since the boot disk created by Acronis is Linux based, if it has problems with your drivers, it may cause issues.
See what others say when they...
Get your system just the way you like it.
Then create an image and burn that image onto a DVD or keep it on an external HD if you want.
You can only restore partitions that aren't system partitions, without a floppy or CDROM since you would have to be in Windows to do it.
Have you verified the image before copying them to the CD?
Try uninstalling the older version and reinstalling the latest.
Make sure you have your license keys handy.
I've got a WD drive.
I'm sure you won't have a problem with any of the major brands.
Get one with a good return policy, and make sure it works....
Re: Acronis 9 Sepup Help
I would do 2 things.
Format the external drive to NTFS just to make file monitering easier. It doesn't have the 4 GB...
I'd run a scandisk on the laptop drive and make sure you don't have any issues with it.
Did you defrag before running the differential?
This works with hard drives so I assume it will work with flash drives.
Right-click My Computer, then choose Manage.
Then go to Storage/Disk...
This happened to me recently.
The only thing that worked was to take another drive, put a clean windows install on it, then add the original disk...
