    Using True Image, I've backed up a bootable partition. I then restored this partition to another physical drive but the Acronis OS Selector software doesn't list the OS that appears on the 2nd drive. How do I get this to work?

    Re: Acronis support is terrible!

    Well,

    I'm going to recommend against acronis. I had a disk partitioned (by Windows XP Pro) with Drive C containing XP Home, Drive D Containing XP Pro. I wanted to re-partition a 3rd logical drive to house some disc utilities.

    I re-partitioned the discs and it ruined the 2nd XP Installation and corrupted it's own boot manager. Only logical disk 0 would boot after the re-partitioning and it found CRC errors in the boot partition that Acronis created.

    Furthermore, Acronis support folks never replied to my emails and when I tried calling them, I got a message saying there was nobody to service the voice mail system and it wouldn't even take a message.

    I guess I'll ask for a refund.
