Hi All, Users are complaining about restoring from USB Drives taking so long to complete. There is one solution that makes it restoring the operating system very fast. Create a Dual-boot Hard Drive with your current operating system. How? Use Acronis Disk Director Suite Version 10 to create a new partition on the Hard drive out of the existing partition using Free Space. Once you have done that and committed, reboot and use the Windows CD to install a new copy of the existing operating system. Once done and activated, install Acronis True Image into that operating system. The operating system you install, must have a different Drive Letter than your current one, or the process will fail. Then simple use Acronis to restore your primary operating system. What would take 9 hours, will take about 2 to 3 hours from an USB Hard Drive. The choice is yours. Just giving out options.
