Hi! I am taking another tact to my dilemma with getting a replacement drive copied from the current drive that is about to die. To recap, I found that I could not bare metal recover from NAS (only NDAS) at all. So, I have now configured the replacement drive as an internal secondary drive. It's configured and the OS (Vista) can see it. It is as of yet uninitialized. I initially tried the clone function. It took about 2 hours for it to return a write failure after having done 0% of the work. So, I gave up on that approach. Now, I am trying to restore from the NAS image (base + 7 incrementals now) directly to the new drive within the UI. There is 3 parts to my current image (c:, d:, and MBR). Acronis told me it was going to create g: and h: and the format looked good. I'm kinda skeptical about what creating g: and h: will do when I remove the dying disc and put the new one in it's place, but at this point I'd like to see Acronis restore ANYTHING at all. So I let it go. After about 2 hours of "sitting there", Acronis has accumulated about 2 minutes of CPU. It has still done 0% of the work. BUT, it finally told me that it will take 31 days to complete the job. YA GOTTA BE KIDDING! Anybody have a clue what I am doing wrong?
