    When I use the bootable Acronis disk, I can view all my PCs in the home network and can access their hard drives. However, I cannot navigate into the shared network storage to load the image to restore.
    Any possible solutions/ideas?
    Thanks,

    Hello nitreniumions,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Could you please clarify what you mean by "navigate into the shared network storage"? Did you use "Restore Image" wizard? What the error message did you get?

    Thank you.

    In order to access the Buffalo NAS did you have to install any drivers under Windows? If so, the Linux environment of the TI recovery CD doesn't have the necessary drivers, so the NAS drive will not be visible.

    You will be able to make backup image to the NAS drive because that can be done under Windows. However, you will have to move the backup to a different drive to restore it.

    Real funny, a NAS which is requiring additional drivers?
    Shouldn't it be named "SIAS=Special Interface Attached Storage" instead then?
    On my Buffalo Linkstation it is no problem to put the images, it's probably a problem with the credentials when there are problems accessing the shares. Unmount every other share or try to access the NAS using the IP address (e.g. \\192.168.1.100) or change the NAS Name to a max. 8 Char one, you should also ensure that a public share is available (with no access restrictions)
