Hi All, I am new to Acronis True Image. Most of my experience has been with Norton Ghost. Here is what I am trying to do. I backed up a Windows 2000 Pro computer sometime ago to a Seagate external hard drive. The internal hard drive inside the computer recently crashed. I bought a replacement hard drive and it should be ready to go. When I access Acronis via F11 I go to Recovery. Here is where it gets interesting. Acronis sees the Seagate external hard drive when I try to do a partition restore, but it can not see the hard drive inside the computer! Now that I think of it when I was testing this out before the original hard drive crashed it never saw it when attempting a partition restore. If I try and do a recovery of files and folders it can see the internal hard drive. Really weird unless I am doing something wrong. If I am wropg here please just give me the step by steps for image recovery from an external device. Before anyone mentions storing the image in a hidden partition let me just say what good is that if the whole drive goes dead? Thanks for taking the time to read this and possibly helping out.
