I wanted to post my experience with Acronis True Image this past week. I downloaded the trial, cloned my Windows XP Pro "C" drive to an external USB HD. I verified the image and it verified just fine. 2 days ago my "C" drive wouldn't boot. I wasn't too upset becuase I had just cloned my drive, so I thought. I reinstalled Windows XP, installed Acronis, and attempted to clone the image I had backed up, back onto the "C" drive. I must have tried 1/2 dozen times getting the same error. I don't have the "exact" error message but it would say it neeeded to reboot in order to finish the copying of the image, however, Windows XP would reboot with a message that it "completed with errors", less than 2 min later, and after it booted up nothing had been done. I searched for the error message in this forum and found out that others had this same problem. I tried some of the solutions that Acronis customer service had posted with no success. The only thing I was able to do was restore my documents folder and a few other folders. With so many people having this same error, you would think they (Acronis) would fix this problem. I am going to give Norton Ghost a try now.
