i tried using acronis true image and i dedicated 25 gig on acronis drive bu i change my mind because i cannot afford to give away 25 gig coz its too much for me. so when i was erasing the acronis drive it says there that my 25gig will be given back to my C: drive and after erasing it, it still doesnt gave my 25 gig back! then i tried to create 25 gig partition for acronis and then deleting it several times hoping that it will give back my 25gig but with no luck.. when i create 25 gig it still uses the 25gig it got from me but when i try to erase it, it still wont give it back to my hard drive, im worried that i wont get it back ever coz the product says that it stores my 25gig in the deepest part of my harddrive so no one can delete my backup. but i dont need backup anymore! now ive uninstalled acronis and everything and im planning to reformat my PC. just to get back my precious 25 gig! ARgh! *will it let me have my memory back after the reformat? coz im still not sure if i'll have my 25 gig after the reformat.. i dont think that il use acronis anymore coz it wants to eat up 70gig of my harddrive for backup. now thats too much for me! (i think for anyone) 70gig is waaay too large. and im afraid that even if i give the 70gig it wont let me have it back. man, acronis true image is driving me nuts!
