    I'm a new user and have found Acronis to be a very powerful and easy to use tool for local images.

    What I haven't been able to figure out is how I can create an image of my other computers over my small home network?

    Using TI version 8.0 for Windows, but can't find an option whereby a network drive gets recognized during the create image prompt?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, since carrying the portable HDD around the house is getting old.

    Enterprise is likely over-kill for what I'm trying to do. Even so I've heard that small netwrok users weren't able to FIND network computers, from the HOST that were in a WORKGROUP?

    I'm guessing all remote computers will require an ADMIN account, and a DOMAIN setup in order for the s/w to find the remote stations, and run the various installs, back-ups and the like?
