    I previously saved a TI8 build 800 image of a Fujitsu 40GB hard disk. I no longer have that hard disk. I would like to restore that image to a brand new Fujitsu 40GB hard disk (same model/series). What kind of problems are likely to crop up? Ilya? Others who know for sure? Thanks.

    As from my experience and from what I have heard from others the transition should go smooth as long as you copied the entire disk and not just part of it if there was more than 1 partition.

    Hope this helps,

    yes.

    Not only have we created images on 1 drive but restored them to a completely different make and model drive and it was a completely different size.

    When restoring the image, you will be asked if you want to restore the drive, or just the partition(s). If the drive is of a different size then check the partition check box. If the drive is the same size then you can check the entire drive restore. We have not restored an image to a smaller drive, but Acronis handles restoration to larger drives with out issue.

    I must have bad luck because I just restored the image to the new drive and it failed with error messages that TrueImage couldn't read some sectors on the new restored drive.
