    After years of seamless operation of a critical system with an occasional minor issue, the inevitable arrived this morning, a toasted Hard Drive :oops:

    1.5 hours later its back up and running with out any issue, only a few days of missing email ..... :D

    Thank you people at Acronis, you made/saved my day........... :thumb:

    For the future you could change your mail settings so that a copy of your incoming mail stays on your ISP's server. This could down load again on recovery.

    Dear Poster,

    I keep all my files/email on a different partition (drive)... that way no matter how many times I image/re-install image my data/emails all are current and up todate plus it make it easy to backup strickly the data.

    Example (I use):

    C: OS - Image Every Major Program/Update - Backup Using Daily
    D: Pagefile - Backup Never
    I: Internet Files - Those your internet browser cache - Backup Never
    F: All data files - Backup Every Hour

    The system is a server; email is setup for personal mail only. I've a notebook, that is also backed up by Acronis, and that's were the work/critical emails reside

    Right. Full image is not the way to save 'data' files. No need to do full image very often. Data files - as often as you feel comfortable. There are some products available that provide continuous backup for data files.
