I’ve purchased and installed TI 9.1 Server and Workstation on several machines along with the Universal Restore option. I use external usb drives for backups and configured each for a Secure Zone using the entire disk. My reason for using SZ is that scheduled backups are not dependant on the drive letter assigned to the usb drive and that TI will delete older backups to make room for new ones as needed (I.E. it’s self maintaining without user intervention). Testing the restore function to the same machine works just fine. But new tests I’ve performed restoring to dissimilar hardware are failing with BSOD’s etc. Then I ran across this little caveat gem in the user guides for both the server and workstation 9.1 products: 2. The Acronis Universal Restore option does not work if a computer is booted with Acronis Startup Recovery Manager (using F11) or the backup image is located in Acronis Secure Zone. This is because Acronis Startup Recovery Manager and Acronis Secure Zone are primarily meant for instant data recovery on the same computer. So my question is, what the heck does the location of an image have to do with the ability to perform a Universal Restore. My confidence in Acronis is starting to erode. Would anyone care to comment? I would appreciate it.
