Hello, at last circumstances forced me to restore Vista system partition with a full backup image of a month earlier. It checks the archive, no problem. Asks me to reboot- I suppose to delete the corrupted partition. After the message about Acronis loading nothing happens, no disk activity, all is hanging. With the help of the rescue disk I can get to the graphical interface, but after I choose to load True Image nothing happens, a black screen forever. When I reboot normally, thank God, the old corrupted Vista system still operates. So what is this about, why is Acronis useless to me now, after I dutifully backed up everyday and every month my whole system disk with vista partition and two data partitions? Backup is on another disk. And by the way, I have a dual boot option. My old XP still resides on again an other disk. But what is happening? Anyone knows? Thank you.
