    Tried to see if this has been posted in the past but couldn't find anything. Only images I have are/were made in my w2k sys under the NTFS file system using TI ver7.0 w/the last build. If I were to format the hdd for FAT32, could the image be successfully restored? Has anyone did this before? o_O

    The image can be restored, but your FAT32 drive/partition will be converted to NTFS.

    Thanks for the reply, but if what you say is true, then it isn't feasible to do what I asked. My hdd is already NTFS but I wanted it formatted to FAT32, not converted. So guess I'll just stay put. :)

    Hello PatG,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis True Image (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage/).

    When you restore the image your old partition is completely removed and the new partition from the image is created on that place. So it is not convertion, it is reformatting. Please note that you will lose all the data stored on the old partition.

    Thank you.
