    I have a very important image in the secure zone that I would like to copy to another hard drive I have in my computer for storage. How might I go about this? :)

    Hello Elliot --

    Actually, there is no way of doing so. I may only suggest, that you restore from this image, then create an image again (it will be the same obviously, as it will be an image of the system that was restred from the initial image from Acronis Secure Zone) and copy it wherever you want.

    Thank you.

    Or you can - by some means - unhide the secure zone (modified?) FAT partition and then access it as if it was a normal drive unit.
    Another work around : use a linux bootable CD (Knoppix LiveCD for example) that can see every (even hidden) partitions.
    I hope it helps!

    Really? What is the value of the ASZ then? I created the ASZ on my machine with the thought that if I ever installed something that hosed my machine, I would be able to revert to a scheduled image from the ASZ using the rescue CD and an image I burn onto a CD when I decide to revert.

    Wouldn't I be better off just creating my own personal partition that functions the same as the ASZ, with the added ability of allowing me to burn the images to CD for recovery?

    Hello Todd,

    The main advantage of Acronis Secure Zone is that it is not available for any Windows applications and you can't lose the data in it launching some program (ecluding those which format drive) or because of virus attack. However if you boot from Acronis Rescue CD you will be able to restore the image stored in Acronis Secure Zone.

    Thank you.

    If you want to clone a PC and you have done it that way, simply go into acronis secure zone manager, click remove zone, and where it says "Where do you want the free space to go" Dont select anything... Then after it has finished go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Storage/Disk Management

    Now right click on the unpartioned space and click new partition :)
    Voilla :p

    Now make ANOTHER image and stick it in there...
