I made a full backup of my system (bare, just drivers and OS) in acronis's secure zone and was curious if i can get to that backup file somehow and burn it to a dvd. It is on my second hard drive but i would like to have it on optical media as well. I have sent them an email about this but they have not responded. Since making this initial copy, I have installed all my apps so simply making another copy of the system image and having it go directly to DVD is not an option. Steps for what I did: 1. Install Acronis True Image 2. Create Acronis Secure Zone on your computer hard disk. restart 3. Activate Acronis Startup Recovery manager and create a bootable media with Acronis True Image. 4. Rebooted with bootable media and made a system backup in the Acronis Secure Zone. 5. Rebooted into windows and installed all apps etc. Any thoughts? I am planning on creating another full backup with all my apps in the same secure zone and burning that to a dvd as well.
