    Hi,
    I have one big file (2 Gbyte video) that I recorded from tv.
    Now I want to make an image of the whole harddrive.
    Is there any way to exclude this video from image (by copying in the temp-folder?) ?

    Hello MartinH,

    You may move this video file temporary to another partition which you do not plan to include into the image and then create the image. After that just move the file back.

    Thank you.

    The problem is that I want to back-up all partitions on drive!
    Does TI back-up the "temporary internet files" ?
    What would happen if I copy the video in this folder?

    Hello MartinH,

    Please note that Acronis True Image is not file-based software so it will create the image of the whole partition (or disk) with all the files including temporary internet files. The only exception is paging and hybernation files.

    The only way in your case seems to be having some other storage to keep the file temporary on it.

    Thank you.
