Hello, I downloaded the Acronis TI 9.0 Home trial version. I tried to do a clone of my current 30 GB hdd (C:\ 23 GB and IBM_SERVICE 5 GB) to a USB 2.0 external hdd of 80 GB (C:\drive mapped to 20 GB and IBM_SERVICE mapped to 5GB, rest unallocated). As soon as after completing the configuration, i click on reboot i get a message saying "operation cancelled". Though after reboot TI goes ahead and starts the process only to fail while copying at disk 2 sector 63 and onwards. This is a R50e Thinkpad. Can you please helpme with what i'm doing wrong? Thanks in advance, Vinay More information: IBM_SERVICE is a hidden drive.
