    am using Server Enterprise edition to back up images to an Iomega REV drive.
    The REV has swappable disks (35GD)

    I can manually create images without a problem but when I schedule the images to be created, I have no way to automatically answer the dialog that pops up saying "I00640003lease Insert The next Media"
    If you click "OK" it goes on and runs
    I get this message either doing it manually or scheduled.
    With scheduled job though, I am trying to have it run around 1AM when there isn't anyone around to say"OK"
    How can I get around this prompt?

    Hello lanas,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Server Disk Backup Software (enterprise edition).

    We regret to inform you that current version of Acronis True Image Enterprise Server always pops the prompt you described when you image to the removable media (such as CDs, DVDs or Iomega REV drive). Our Development Team is currently working on the removing this message when you deal with such devices as Iomega REV drive and we expect the improvement to be implemented in future.

    Thank you.

    lanas, I have no idea if this will work, but it just might ;)

    Share the Iomega REV drive (or a folder on the drive), and then map the shared drive to a new drive letter, e.g. R.

    In your schedule, have True Image write the image to R: instead of directly to the REV.

    Just i idee, but there is a software called buzof, that will wait for a any kind of popup and it will click it for you

    there is a cut and paste of the description

    Buzof enables you to automatically answer, close or minimize virtually any recurring window including messages, prompts, and dialog boxes. Simply teach Buzof how to click the button that you would normally click to get rid of the annoying window. From this point on, Buzof will periodically scan the desktop and take care of the window whenever it shows up again. Teaching Buzof how to click buttons is a snap; it can be done either by dragging an icon from the Buzof window to the targeted button, or by positioning the cursor over the button and pressing a hot key
