    1] When performing a backup. What difference is there between the file type
    default of "Backup Archives (*.tib)" and choosing "All FILES (*)"?

    2] If I want to back up to DVD & install In-Ccd from Nero do I need In-Cd
    installed to read the backup later?

    3] If I do a backup to the Acronis Secure Zone and want to later burn a copy
    to a DVD from there how do I do so?

    4] I installed the Recovery Manager. Why can't I do a backup from there?

    5] When booting to the recovery manager my mouse only works on the up &
    down axis & that is inverted. Is there a patch?

    6] If my secure zone is large enough for say 3 backups an I do a fourth is
    there some way to pick wich one will be deleted?


    Thanks for the help.

    Hello selkov,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please be aware that this is a standard feature which most of the Windows-based applications have. It allows you to see not only the *.tib files (default extension for Acronis True Image 9.0 images) in the browser window, but any other files as well.

    You do not need to have any special software installed in order to be able to restore images from DVD.

    You can find more information on how to write your images to DVD in this FAQ article.

    I'm afraid that it is not possible to copy images from or to Acronis Secure Zone.

    Actually, you should be able to create images when using Acronis Startup Recovery Manager.

    Cold you please clarify what exactly do you mean when saying that you can not "backup from there"?

    Have you received any error messages? What exact error messages? When exactly have you received them?

    Please describe actions taken before the problem appears step-by-step.

    Please also find the full version name and build number by going to Help -> About... menu in the main program window and let us know them.

    Please be aware that this problem is known and will be fined in the future builds of Acronis True Image 9.0.

    While the fixed build is not released yet, you can try booting with "usbmouse=off" parameter in the way described below:

    - Boot into Acronis Startup Recovery Manager and press F11 key once more when the selection screen (advising you to select full or safe version of Acronis Loader) appears;

    - Add the following parameter to the "Linux Kernel Settings" prompt:

    usbmouse=off

    - Click on the OK button and proceed with booting into the Full mode;

    It should solve the problem.

    Please be aware that the backups saved to Acronis Secure Zone are deleted automatically if required. Acronis True Image uses the following scheme to clean up Acronis Secure Zone:

    - If there is not enough free space in the zone to create a backup, then Acronis True Image deletes the oldest full backup with all subsequent incremental/differential backups;

    - If there is only one full backup (with subsequent incremental/differential backups) left and a full backup is in progress, then the old full backup and incremental/differential backups are deleted;

    - Otherwise, (only one full backup left, and an incremental/differential backup is in progress) you will get a message about space error. In that case you will have to either re-create the full backup or increase the Acronis Secure Zone.

    You can always check how much free space is left in the zone on the second page of the Manage Acronis Secure Zone wizard.

    Please also note that you can find the detailed instructions on how to use Acronis True Image 9.0 in the respective User's Guide.

    Thank you.

    I am still confused.....
    What is the difference in choosing between the formats when PERFORMING A BACKUP?

    Will the backed up data be written differntly if I choose (all Files)?

    When performing a back up from the recovery manager I get no errors.
    I can choose the data to back up & choose the option of where to store it to but The mouse willnot cover the "NEXT" button to proceed & when I use the keyboard (alt-n) nothing happens. In short it will not start copying the backup.

    Is there a benefit of doing a backup from the startup manager as opposed to from within windows?
