Using: Acronis TrueImage WorkStation 9.1 3854 on Brand new Acer TravelMate 6292 with WinXP 32bt Pro Disk: 250GB Samsung Mobile Drive SATA I tried to create a security zone, and when prompted to reboot, i acknowledge... Pre-boot windows shows the usual details of acronis doing its thing, analyzing, etc etc... after reboots back to normal windows. But checking the drive it has not been touched.. Checked out the logs from acronis, NO ERROR.. what happened? How come acronis seem to go through its routine ok but when i log back into windows it's like nothing happened.. and no errors too.. I tried it soo many times, reinstalled acronis, even tried DISK DIRECTOR, all returning the same NO EFFECT results. Please help! Tea UPDATE: I tried DOS version of DiskDirector and it seemed to work . .. why can't it work straight out of windows?
