I just got a laptop with Windows Vista, so I moved up from Acronis 8 to version 10. I made a backup after removing all the junk that DELL pre-installs so I can get back to a good point in the future without using DELL's restore system and going back to all the programs that start up every time. I then booted from the new bootable CD to make sure it was working. The CD does boot and Acronis loads, but it does not see my C drive, so I would not have a way to restore the backup in the future. Out of curiousity, I placed the CD in my desktop (also a DELL for whatever good it does to say that) and the C drive is seen, although that is an XP computer. Has anyone ever heard of the C drive not being seen by the Acronis program on some computers after booting from the CD Acronis made? Any ideas how to force it? I should mention that my external USB drive (the one with the backup image) is getting seen as the C drive. If I boot without the external drive, Acronis says there is no hard drive. Maybe Vista partitions differently, but I would think Acronis 10 would understand the concept.
