    Hello I was wondering if this feature is now in the latest release of True Image Workstation? I noticed that the last post regarding this feature was back in May 22,2007 (Thread - https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?p=800505 )

    I just tried it and I get the "Failed to Lock Partition 1-1" error message BUT in Chapter 16 on page 143 at the bottom of the Acronis user manual I see the following example:

    trueimagecmd /deploy /filename:"C:\Test\1.tib" /partition:2-1
    /target_partition:1-1
    • This will restore partition 2-1, stored in image 1.tib, to partition 1-1.

    Then at the top of page 144 is see this other example.

    trueimagecmd /deploy_mbr /harddisk:1 /asz:2 /index:3
    /password:pswd
    • This will restore MBR from the image of hard disk 1 to the same hard disk 1. The image is contained in the backup 3rd created in the archive number 2, located in Acronis Secure Zone that is protected with the ‘pswd’ password.

    Now if you look at the very begining of Chapter 16 you will see this statement:

    "The command-line mode functionality is somewhat limited as compared to the GUI mode. You will not be able to perform operations that require the reboot of the system, such as restore a system partition or clone a system drive. These operations only can be done through the GUI. Scripting is intended only for backup."

    So I am somewhat confused...

    My question is as follows:

    Is it possible to write a script that will allow the Acronis product to perform an automated restore of a system partition? (Yes/No)

    If this IS possible please describe how... (If someone out there was able to do this please share with the group, I am sure I am not the only one out there who would be interested in doing this...)

    Thanks!

    There has been several views but unfortunately no response from the community or support... I can only conclude that this is still not possible with the Acronis product as of January 2008... I guess my search continues for a product that can reliably perform an automated restore...
