    I have an image I created onto an external; USB drive prior to creating a recovery zone with TI 8.0.

    Can I move that image into the "Zone" to use to restore it?

    Thanks!

    Okay, thanks for the reply.

    I guess I could do a current image to an external drive, restore my first image, create RZ image, then put current image back though right? :)

    Always more than one way around things, just hoped there would be an easier way!

    Hello TCMan,

    Your scenario is quite right. After you create Acronis Secure Zone you will need to create new image there and then restore the current image partition-by-partition (i.e. not as a whole disk). If you restore the image of the whole disk at once Acronis Secure Zone will be deleted because current image doesn't contain it.

    Thank you.
