    My C drive will require 16 DVD's to image it correctly. I am guessing that is because there are tons of raw music files (I'm a recording musician). How can I exclude those from the image and just image my operating system and programs?

    Thank-you

    Also...is the manual online somewhere?

    Hello Cal D,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    We regret to inform you that you cannot backup selected files or directories. Acronis True Image can only backup an entire drive or partition. Note that you can still restore individual files or folders from a backup image.

    Thank you.

    16 DVD's? You have like 500 GB of data on that partition?

    You really should consider splitting your disk(s) into 2-3 partitions. One partition (C) for your OS and programs, one for current data (D), and one for archiving (E).
    Yep.

    Hi there MiniMax,

    16 X 4.5GB = 500GB? o_O ;) :) :D
