    How can I delete an existing image from ati7 secure zone without going through the delete partition etc method??
    I would rather do complete images rather than incremental to keep the size of the secure zone as small as possible. All options I've tried so far just add images that are unnecessarally large.
    Thanks in advance

    Hello --

    Thank you for taking the time to contact us and for your interest in Acronis
    True Image (http://www.acronis.com/products/trueimage/)!

    Actually, you cannot delete images from Acronis Secure Zone. They will be auto-deleted anyway if the size of the zone will not be enough for the new image, starting from the oldest one. You can just resize the zone so that it would be rather close to the image size - and each time you would have 1 image there.

    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. Mount the Secure Zone and ALLOW WRITING on that partition so that you can delete the .tib file (should be the largest file). Works fine!

    I hope it helps!

    Can you give more directions on using knoppix.
    I downloaded and burned the CD.
    Booted the CD.
    I can see many of my partitions, but not the Acronis Secure Zone Partition.
    I also tried Paragon Mount Everything and it shows it as an 'other' partition and won't mount.
