    ATI 9.0 Home

    Dedicated logic disc for all images created by ATI.
    All known users have read-only access rights for this disc.
    For the duration of ATI imaging process "change" access rights are granted for this disc to user-defined administrator.
    Read-only rights retrieved after imaging completed.
    All those operations are made using setACL application.
    Called from batch file invoked by pre-processing command.

    However setACL returns errors
    ERROR: Reading the SD from <\\?\UNC\KRZYDU-PC01\Z$> failed with: The data area passed to a system call is too small.
    SetACL error message: A privilege could not be enabled

    Does setACL have sufficient access rights to complete its job ?
    I guess, scheduled tasks run from SYSTEM account.
    At least the Task Manager is claiming that.

    setACL experts say SE_SECURITY_NAME must be enabled for
    process executing this operation.
    How can I ensure setACL has sufficient rights when running
    in context of scheduled task ?

    Well, my questions then in other words.

    1. Why is the pre-processing command unable to change access rights
    of a logical disc ACES (using calcs or setACL) ?
    2. What rights are granted to the scheduled tasks, Administrotor, System,
    Limited- User ?
    3. How can I help the scheduled task to be able to change access rights
    to the logical disc ?

    Hello chrizio,

    Thank you for your interesting in Acronis True Image

    The program requires Windows authorization for a scheduled task execution. That is why you should enter your account name and password both to let Acronis True Image program log in Windows with Administrator's rights and execute a scheduled task. The user name should be specified in the form of SERVER\USER or DOMAIN\USER.

    If the issue persists submit technical request using this link http://www.acronis.com/company/contacts/request/index.html?t=2

    Best regards,
