Does an image ever skip files or can I be sure I have them all?
Hi, Jack Walters
Welcome to Wilders and Acronis Forums.
Ti does not copy files as such, it copy the disk sectors in use [having data] to create an Image.
Hello Jack Walters,
Thank you for your interest in Acronis Disk Backup Software.
Acronis True Image views the hard drive as a group of sectors. During backup, the software creates an image from the sectors that contain data, creating an exact duplicate image of the hard disk. Because the product creates a backup in this way, it can backup everything on the drive, including both user accessible data as well as open Windows files - system files, the master boot record (MBR), partition tables and any partition-based boot records.
Also, if you downloaded the trial, you'll see that there is an Explore feature that lets you check what's in the backup file before you burn it to disc.
