    Hello

    I've just installed the acronis TI Home ver. 10 and everything work fine.
    I've done an entire backup of a hdisk partition to a DVD and the file is ok.
    However, when the xp boots from the acronis bootCD I can "see" all the hard drives and partitions, but I can "see" no DVD drive where is the file for restore...

    Any ideas?

    Thank you.

    Semantic (and somewhat irrelevant) point - The boot CD is Linux/DOS not XP.

    I suggest you raise a support request in case this is a driver issue.

    In the meantime you might want to ensure you have a working disaster recovery system by :

    a) storing your backups somewhere which can be read by your boot disk (like a second harddrive)
    b) Look at burning a BartPE recovery disk, which will be able to see your drives if Windows can.
