    Hello,

    I recently switched to a MacBook Pro with the Leopard OS installed. I still need to run a few Windows programs and installed Parallels Mac 3.0 to allow me to run those programs. I am curious to know if it is possible to launch True Image in the virtual machine the Parallels creates when it is opened and make a image of that virtual image? Also, can the image be restored back to the Mac HD?

    I suppose I could experiment an install my copy True image 10.0 and see what happens but I rather first ask the question.


    Thanks, Mike

    I haven't tried TI in Parallels, but I have in Microsoft's Virtual PC 2007 and it works fine. Just load the ISO file in the virtual CD drive and boot it. As far as I know, backing up and restoring of a virtual hard drive has to be done from inside the VM (at least from the standpoint of treating it like a "real" computer).

    However, you may find it easier to just backup the virtual hard drive file instead of running TI in the VM.

    Hello bmwmcrider,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please be aware that officially none of the current version of Acronis True Image supports Macintosh computers and, therefore, we cannot guarantee that Acronis software will work correctly on them. Most likely future versions will support it. We regret to inform you that we cannot tell the exact time-frame when that will be implemented.

    If you have any further questions concerning Acronis software, please feel free to submit a request for technical support or post any of them on this forum. We will certainly try to help you in resolving any issues.

    Thank you.
