I've got a Gateway laptop with two partitions -- the system and the recovery partition, 83GB and 10GB. I've got a 160 gig drive in a USB 2.0 external enclosure that I'd like to clone the original drive to. I purchased Acronis at the recommendation of some users on another forum, and I'm trying to use the Clone option. I'm choosing Manual, selecting the source and destination drives, keep data on original drive, proportionate copy (it comes out to like 15GB and 125GB which is fine by me), and start. The program says it needs to reboot. When it does, it sits at a DOS-style screen and checks the partitions, then within about a minute it says the drive imaging is complete. That's great, but when you boot into Windows, there's not even a partition on that external drive, much less any files! Is there something I'm doing wrong here? Does Acronis maybe not support cloning Vista to an external drive? It's Home Premium, if that makes a difference.
