Hi, Acronis True Image 7 is very a jewel, great features like the ASRM, auto detect of the CD burner, and secure zone. I have questions regarding these features : - is there a way to recover if the ASRM in the MBR is corrupted ? - does the bootable CD is able to restore an image from the secure zone or is only the ASRM able to access it ? For now ASRM works fine, image created successfully and checked. The image explorer is nicely done too, it virtually mount it as a partition, very handy when you want to drag some folders from it. My main concerns so, is when we don't use the ASRM, the bootable CD can access the image but the image isn't safe under Windows, and if we use the ASRM, what happens if the ASRM get corrupted and that Windows won't start ? I think it's very unlikely to happen thought, but just in case, I need to know in advance Thanks. regards, gkweb.
