Hey guys, I recently built a new machine and the idea is to actually start using it to the fullest. (doh). Meaning my old PC will be cleaned after i reinstall all the software on my new rig and recover my software settings on there etc etc. (I do this step by step because i am switching from XP to Vista and want to maintain the same functionality altogether). I am now at a certain point that all of my software is tested and will work or that i have an alternative that is just as good. I am now looking at Acronise TI 11.0 as the final step. (This is probably the most important one, because just like my old rig my new PC will have a RAID0 and a RAID1 setup. Where the RAID0 Setup is backupped 3 or 5 times a week and the backups are stored on the RAID1 array). I made a full backup with Acronis which all went well. Now i entered the Recovery CD and wanted to restore the image and it will give me 2 options. Restore Track0 and the MBR or restore the C drive. (The C drive being the drive with the OS which i made a full backup from). I think i can fill in the blanks but i have to be 100% certain because after i switch all my software to the Vista rig the XP machine will get a totally different purpose (Music Producing) so i need something to rely on. So my questions are..... -Is the restore MBR and Track 0 option only necessary when i have a new or completely wiped harddrive? -This would mean that in my current case where i just want to test the recovery option on a healthy and undamaged OS drive, i only need to recover the C Drive image and thats it? -Was the Restore MBR and Track 0 option made specifically so that when the Harddrive actually damages you can still restore your Vista installation without having to repair it afterwards? Thanks for any info.
