Vista. TI version 10.0 (build 4,942). I created the Secure Zone. I go to Backup and try to send the image to SZ (which does show in the lefthand Backup Archive Location panel). Acronis pops up a window says: "Acronis Secure Zone is not available. You can create it for storing your archives in a secure place inaccessible for the operating system. Do you want to create Acronis Secure Zone now?" What? It is showing in the left panel. How can it say it isn't available? Ack! Space is gone and I can't use it. I don't like this at all. Have never had a problem with v8 on XP. Is this a "10 doesn't really work on Vista" issue? How do I get my space back--about 35 GB I think I made it. I don't want to lose 35 GB. Second, how do you "see" the size, properties etc of the SZ partition?
