Hi. I am a new user of acronis true image. I have version 8.0. I have made a back-up image of my c drive partition in the acronis secure zone, which is where i have my windows xp os. I have another d drive partition, which is where i stored my data. There is nothing wrong with my c drive now. But i wanted to test if my back-up image is working so i tried to restore the image to my c drive partition but it couldnt work because it said that the c drive partition is currently the partition using windows os at the moment so it cannot restore to that partition. I tried to use the acronis start up manager before windows boot up when i restart my laptop by pressing F11. But when i click on the restore image icon, windows start up automatically and i am back to the situation where i cannot restore my image to the partition that is currently using the windows os. Hope you guys can help me solve this problem. Thanks a lot guys. Jerry.
