Windows XP Prof. Acronis True Image Home 9.0 ------------------------- Is it possible to "clear" the partition of files Acronis creates without clearing the actual partition? ie..I want to delete *.* the files and start over with a clean 50GIG partition to do a Clean backup and use differential backups. Reason: I have gotten all my programs loaded, the sytem is stable, all email migrated etc etc and I now want to start with the partition clean and a "master" backup. I had lots of backups while I was loading in case something took a dump. I RTFM but somehow missed it. I am an old GHOST user and having to rethink how I used to do things.
