Hello, I recently bought Acronis True Image 9.0 (online download) because I was convinced of the way Acronis True Image 9.0 works. I tested a lot of software also Imaging software like Ghost, Altiris and RIS from Microsoft (although thats not clone based and ***ing slow) Anyway I was charmed of Acronis True Image 8.0 like that F11 key! I work as an IT security expert at one the biggest companies of this little world. Also I am a experienced C programmer and got an MCSE degree. I also give presentions and mentioned your Acronis True Image 8.0 Anyway I like to experiment and see how the software reacts. When the software survives my actions....its company proof. Couple of questions: 1) Why cant I create a rescue boot disk on my DVD writer? I tried CDroms and DVD's..I got an Toshiba Tecra S1 laptop with 2 gB internal memory and a 80GB hd. I just bought 9.0 because of that issue (I thought the problem would be solved with 9.0, as an user from 8.0) 2) I tried Acronis True Image 8.0 and made some images in the acronis secure zone with it. And also activated the F11 method. Every morning I pressed F11 and restored from my work image (8.0) and Oh yeah! There it was my clean no spyware and no virus image .... Afterwards I did an anti4us update and check at MS for updates (Must work with XP, although it isnt secure) Than I saw a new version hey ok...lets buy it...bought it and just installed it the 9.0 verson while 8.0 still was installed. I thought (never do that, because murphy is always around the corner like your wife when you are watching a porno movie)... Acronis True Image 9.0 will warn me if I get in trouble...and I did got trouble o yeah baby I did... I installed the f11 method of 9.0 ....no warning or what so ever...although I expected that...hmm..Ok not an every day user business..anyway ...hmmm Rebooted and tried to recover by using F11 (from my 9.0 version) from a 8.0 image....wow there it started... I tried that snap shot thing...And thought ....nope that shouldnt work but lets try it ...any way I got an error...Ok expected! Next step was to restore from an 8.0 image in my Acronis secure zone to my C partition.. GODDAMMIT WHERE IS MY D: partition with 45 GB with data? Somehow the installation from 9.0 over 8.0 disabled my D: partition Goddammned hit by murphy...struck by lightning So 4 hours later my D partition was recovered by using some partition recover tool Stupid of course but now I am stuck in this situation... Is this normal behaviour? Not mine ...as well from 9.0 installed over 8.0 (whithout a deinstall from 8.0) ... I think that F11 thing which changes my bootthing does do some strange things when I a previous installation of 8.0 was installed... 3) You really must use me as a betatester...I always got a magic touch for receiving errors... Can I get a fix for this? Not for my behaviour as well for that bug? as mentioned in 2. 4) What kind of encryption do you use for Acronis True Image 9.0 images? I prefer AES encryption. These are serieus questions so please respond.
