Hi All, I have recently bought myself a copy of Acronis True Image 10.0. I'm only just getting round to familiarising myself with its capabilities and setting it up correctly and wondered if I could seek advice from other users of this software regarding the following: 1. Backing-up - having first created a full backup i.e. cloning my main hard drive to include the operating system, registry, drivers, software and settings etc, I believe the best option from then on is to carryout a differential backup. There is then an option to instruct the software to make another full backup after a set amount of differential backups. How many differential backups would other users recommend before making another full backup and would anyone advise using incremental backups instead? 2. Windows System Restore - would people recommend that I disable this and let True Image manage it? 3. Snap Restore - I don't believe using this would be of any benefit to me. What do others think? 4. Compression level - when backing-up data is it best to use the normal (default) compression setting or none at all? 5. File Level Security Settings - do you think its a good idea to disable preserving files security settings in archives? 6. Secure Zone - is this really necessary or would it be better to remove this facility? I believe this also allows the 'Startup Recovery Manager' to be used at boot up, again is this necessary? Sorry for all the questions but I need to establish I'm using the correct settings before finding out (possibly when its too late!) that I haven't Regards.
