    hi i am new and i wanna ask that is it harmful to the hard disk if i restore an image i created with True image 6 every week coz
    i have heard that making and breaking partitions alot can create bad sectors in hard disk(is this true) and
    i think that when TI 6 restores an image of a partition it first breaks that partition and then makes it again(is this true)

    plz answer i am confused

    Hello waziristani,

    Thank you for using Acronis True Image (http://www.acronis.com/products/trueimage/).

    "i have heard that making and breaking partitions alot can create bad sectors in hard disk(is this true)" - I cannot help you regarding this matter.

    "i think that when TI 6 restores an image of a partition it first breaks that partition and then makes it again(is this true)" - This is true for any version of Acronis True Image.

    Thank you.

    What do you mean by "first breaks that partition and then makes it again"? I've never heard that terminology before.
    Thanks,

    Hi Skyhawk

    I think what waziristani means is that it deletes the existing partition and then creates a new one during the restore process.

    As to his question whether this process creats bad sectors? I've never heard of that one before!! Bad sectors are caused by sick hard drives not software. Clusters can be "lost" (but subsequently recovered) because of a corrupted write operation but that's a different thing altogether.

    Regards
