Hi May I know if the Acronis service "Acronis Scheduler2 Service" can be safely disabled via services.msc? I use ATI occasionally for making disk image and won't need anything more fancy. At present, I switched the Startup Type to manual and from msconfig, unchecked the following: True Image Scheduler Helper (schedhlp.exe) Acronis True Image (TimounterMonitor.exe) Acronis True Image (TrueImageMonitor.exe) Are there implications in doing this? Turns out that I recently noticed that Vista System Restore is not automatically creating restore points even though I have checked the box in system Properties>System Protection. Task Scheduler service is set to Automatic. Any chance that the tinkering of the Acronis service is related to this? I am using ATI Home 10 and Vista. Thank you.
