    When backing up an application like Outlook Express, are you able to backup directly onto the Computers C Drive without having to backup into the Acronis Secure zone ?? like can you backup directly intoo my documents, or do all C drive backups need to go to the Acronis Secure zone ?? Thanks for any advice .

    Remember that the email backup feature in TI 10 is not working properly, if at all.

    That said, you can direct data backups (as opposed to partition images) to any folder you choose, although backing up to the same partition, especially the O/S partition, doesn't provide much in the way of disaster recovery. If you don't mind my asking, what are your goals in the email backup you want to do?

    Hello trescat,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    We are sorry for the delayed response.

    Please note that when running Acronis True Image under Windows you can place the image archive to the same partition which you are backing up. However, we always recommend that you store the archive farther from the original partition. For example, saving the archive to another hard disk will protect your data if your primary disk is damaged. Data saved to a network disk or removable media will survive even if all your local hard disks are down.

    Generally, the Acronis Secure Zone was designed for those users who does not have a dedicated backup storage or have only one hard drive.

    As CatFan432 mentioned there is an issue with backing up messages, accounts and settings of Microsoft Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003 and Microsoft Outlook Express. We are aware of this issue and have already been forwarded it to Acronis Development Team. It will be fixed in the nearest future.

    Thank you.
