    I am trying to clone information from one hard drive to another hard drive. Both are western digital 120 GIG hard drives.
    Drive C: has Win XP prof(with Service pack 2) with some applications loaded. total data is 7.8 gigs. Drive D: is the destination drive and its basically empty. It has just been partitioned and formatted with the western digital "Disk Manager S/W that came with the hard drive, so its ready to be cloned from the source drive. Both drives have been scanned for any sector errors including the long scan test which lasted hours. Both reported fine.

    For some strange reason Acronis true image version 8 keeps failing to move the data from C: to D:
    It keeps on saying the following silly things:

    "Acronis True Image failed to move your data because your new hard drive does not have enough free space to complete the operation. The reasons follow:
    1. Some of your partitions contain errors. We recommend you reboot your operating system and correct these errors
    2. Your new hard disk is much smaller than the old one. Make sure have selected the correct old hard disk. If you have chosen the "As is" option on the previous page , go back and try to select another option"

    Has anyone run into this problem? Any solutions here?. I really thought this was going to be pretty simple. Grumble, grumble, grumble.

    Not sure if this has anything to do with your problems, but you're not supposed to clone to a pre-partitioned, pre-formatted drive. The cloning process will take care of that for you.

    I read what you wrote, but since the application says it will completely DELETE (wipe out) what is on the destination drive prior to cloning should it really matter if the destination drive is pre partitioned and formatted?

    Thanks for the response.

    Hello dssolr,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis True Image (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage/).

    We are really sorry for the inconveniences.

    It doesn't matter whether your destination disk contains any information and wehther it is prepartitioned or not. Could you please send Acronis Report to support@acronis.com along with the link to this thread (please see https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=55317 for instructions)? It will help us to investigate the problem thoroughly.

    Thank you.
