    When trying to add a new hard disk to he system I get a message that reads...

    "The destination dynamic hard disk drive you have chosen contains some dynamic volumes that could contain useful data. Chick OK to confirm deletion of all the volumes on the destination hard disk drive."

    What's that about... I backed up drive C with no problem and this is just a storage drive I use for data.

    Hello plugh,

    Thank you for using Acronis True Image

    What is the exact version of the program you use? Acronis True Image Home does not support dynamic disks, and this can be the reason of the issue.

    You can check the presence of dynamic volumes by means of the internal Disk Management utility window (Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management).

    If the issue requires a further investigation, please create a screen shot of the error message and attach to your next post.

    If you are not familiar with making screen shots, please read the below step-by-step instructions.

    - Get to the window which you want to make a screen shot of;
    - Hit the (Alt+)PrintScreen button on your keyboard;
    - Run Paint usually available in Start\Programs\Accessories or another graphics application;
    - Choose Paste command in Edit menu;
    - Save the result picture in JPEG format being preferable.

    Also, please attach the new hard drive to the system, download Acronis Report utility available here and run it, create a report and attach to your post.

    This would provide us with detailed information on the hard disk partition structure.

    Thank you.
