Acronis Technical Support, please provide a clear answer to the following questions. TrueImage 8 is being used to restore an image as follows: 1) The image was created under Windows XP from a 40GB drive which later failed and was discarded. 2) Just before the image was created, checkdisk was run and several bad sectors were remapped and locked out. The image was then created. 3) The image is being restored to a brand new 40GB drive which was formatted and checkdisk was run with no problems found. Question 1: How does TI8 handle restoring the image to a different disk considering the fact that the image was created from a snapshot of a disk that had several bad areas mapped out as unusable before the image was created? (Recognize that the old and new disk sectors are entirely different.) Question 2: How does TI8's restoring the image to the new hard disk affect data integrity and functionality of all files restored, if at all? Question 3: Is the resulting integrity and functionality of data on a new disk any different whatsoever whether one chooses to restore an image created from a different disk or clones a disk? Please, Acronis Technical Support, answer these simple questions in clear, easy to understand language. Thank you in advance.
