Hi, first time post & a bit of a newbie. I have recently bought/acquired: Dlink NAS with 2x Seagate 500Gb SATA HDD (set as 2 separate volumes Y: & Z: ) Lenovo Thinkcentre with Seagate 500 GB SATA HDD (C: same mod as NAS HDDs) Installed Trial Version Acronis TI Home 09 Running XP Pro sp 3 My reasoning in buying 3 HDDs of same make & model was that I could clone the main (C: ) HDD on to each of the other NAS HDDs on alternating weeks. This way if my main PC HDD C: died or got a bad virus I could physically replace it with one of the HDD in the NAS & boot up as per normal on my PC. In 'My Computer' it sees the 2 separate volumes/HDDs (Y: & Z: ) in the NAS, Y: & Z:. When I right mouse click them it does not give me the option of 'Sharing & Security...' However in Disk Management they are not there. Also when I go to clone in TI, I cannot see the destination Y: & Z: drives. 1/ How can I over come this? 2/ Is my reasoning for cloning correct (& will it work?) or should I just back up etc..?
