I am running Window XP Pro, 1gb of Ram, and two physical HDDs. Each HDD has three (3) partitions. When I last reformatted the master drive, the slave drive was hooked up, so initially the were lettered as follows: Master: C, E, & F Slave: D, I, & J the roms were: G and H <DVD burner,CDrom,) After XP was installed, I renamed the drive partition as follows: Master: C, D & E Slave: F, G & H the roms were: Y and Z <DVD burner,CDrom) C drive has XP installed and D drive is where I install Programs. After installing Acronis 9, I made images of C and D partitions and saved them on E drive (I did NOT create a secuity zone). A few days later, after installing a few programs, I wanted to test the restore as I was not happy with new programs, Acronis seemed the easiest way to do this. I started to restore C drive first, this is where it got confusing. First I was told that C drive was busy and given 3 or 4 options. I chose to boot into the Manager (believe that is correct) and it booted to what looked like a dos region. When I stated to choose the source for the images to be restored, instead of having the drives show as I had renamed them, they showed like they were when I originally formatted the master. That blew my mind right off the bat. I was able to find the images, but NOT on E drive where I had stored them. I stopped the restore at that time, as I was not sure I would NOT wipeout a drive on my slave or end up restoring the D drive image on the E drive partition. I know I could re-format my system again with the Slave disconnected to correct this problem. I really don't want to have to do this. I really don't want to have to disconnect the slave each time I want to restore images either. HOW DO I GET AROUND THIS ISSUE OR IS IT REALLY A PROBLEM? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
