Going through all the problems found in the forum, I am now quite scared with acronis build 2302. The confidence I had with 937 (version is now gone. Just to try I used a new hard disk and cloned my original disk to it(NO PROBLEMS THERE). I take regular backups to secure zone which is a second internal hard disk used only for backups. Just as an experiment tried to use to the snap restore feature to restore one of my backups to the new disk. It totally failed , as my system did not shut down at all. After waiting for quite sometime , I used the soft shutdown and then rebooted my computer. The acronis loader started but I got a prompt that snap restore could not initialise and I had to quit. On restart the system WOULD NOT BOOT. Thank god I did not use my original hard disk. I have tried a second time with the same results.
