    I would not recommend it. Cloning is best done manually using the TI Rescue Disk. But, you can do it from Windows in XP, but not Vista.

    Hello splash,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please note that Acronis True Image 10.0 Home allows you only to create backup schedule tasks not clone. Note that Clone Disk option is generally used to upgrade personal computer without reinstalling operating system and applications, or configuring user settings. For example, you are able to clone your old disk with all its partitions on it to the new one, usually more spacious.

    Please also be aware that after the disk cloning (restoring the system partition to the new drive) is finished you should unplug one of the hard drives prior to booting into Windows for the first time. The point is that keeping two identical hard drives (hard drives having identical digital signatures) connected at the same time is "unpleasant" for Windows and might cause a number of boot and\or drive letter assignment problems. After you boot into Windows from one of the hard drives at least once, please feel free to turn off the computer and connect another disk.

    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.
