When I try to restore, I get the following error message: "Cannot restore the partition because the image archive file is on the same hard disk that you are going to restore." The image is in the Acronis secure zone, and I am trying to restore to the normal Windows partition. Let me explain what I am doing. I created an Acronis secure zone on a second hard drive. I backup my primary drive to the secure zone on my second drive. Now that I have about twenty incremental backups, I want to restore the backups to the second drive, so that the Windows partition on the second drive is identical to the primary drive. I'm, sure there is enough free space on the second drive. (I do this so I have a drive that I can switch to if my primary fails, and I also would like to prove to myself that the backup software works.) It seems like this is exactly what you would want to do if you only had one drive. Why won't it let me restore to the same drive where the image is, if the image is in the secure zone?
