    I was wondering if Acronis True Image supports a restore from a GPT (Guid Partition Table) partition? I have a 4TB array in a single partition. The only way windows recognizes this array is by converting it to a GPT partition. Since Acronis works in a limited OS mode (am I right?) when it restores a primary (active OS) partition, I need to know if it would work if my images were on a GPT partition? Can it read the images placed on a GPT partition in restore mode (CD based or other)? Thanks!

    Thanks, will try the demo. Do you give any price breaks for home users? The corporate price is rather high for a home machine.
