Hi. I have just bought Acronis True Image 9.0. I am in the process of checking that it works properly on my computer which is an ordinary PC running XP Pro. I have two 80Gb internal ATA HDDs (disks 1 and 2) and a third internal ATA HDD (Disk 3) which is in an external IDE/USB converter casing that is connected to the computer via a USB. The XP operating system together and all my personal files and data are located on disk 1 (on a single partition). After I create an image of disk1 on disk3 (i.e.my external USB HDD) I then try to restore the backup onto disk 2 (i.e. I am replicating what I will have to do if ever disk1 breaks down. When I restore teh backup image onto disk2 then make this the master HDD, windows XP Pro boots up fine (I see the usual black loading screen with the XP Pro log and the charger bar) but after booting all then I get is a blue screen with a small WindowXP logo, i.e. the restored system has stopped and will not move onto the next phase which is the normal XP account log-in page.I have also tried creating an Acronis backup file on disk1 and then restoring that to disk2 (i.e. I have avoided using the USB connection which I understand can cause problems) but I still get the exact same result. Please can anyone help?
