    Hi All,

    I'm new to Acronis True Image. I was wondering, is there a way to Clone my HD to the network? I could create images to the network, but the images do not resize to new hard disk size.

    Thanks in advance.

    Not likely what your want to do because a clone is an exact image of the entire original drive. Do you really want to convert a network drive to a copy of your whole hard drive?

    Ah, but you can resize the image to fit the new drive, so this is the way to go.

    Thanks for your reply. Maybe I didn't explained correctly. What I want is to be able to clone or image of my HD to a network share and then load that image to a new HD and hopefully the image will auto resize to fit new HD size, like Symantec Ghost does. Is this possible with True Image? Thanks.

    The image won't auto-resize. You need to make the choice of how big to make the image and how much, if any, of the drive to leave for a second partition.

    Frankly, I prefer having this manual since installation on a new, larger hard drive offers many new possiblitities.
