I am using Acronis True Image 11 to backup a laptop. I have the laptop's 160GB HDD in 2 partitions - C: (40GB) and D: (80GB). I have placed a Secure Zone on partition D: and it works just fine. However, as you probably know, a failing hard drive on a laptop will eliminate both partitions - making my backups useless. So, I also connect an external Toshiba 160GB hard drive to the USB port and would like to save my Acronis Secure Zone to it to cover me in the event of a hard drive failure on my laptop. If I try and create a second Acronis Secure Zone.....well, you just can't do that. Why? I have no freaking idea. It makes no sense whatsoever to me to not allow multiple Secure Zones. So, when I domy backups, my backups eventually fill the external drive and Acronis simply chokes. So, I tried a simple "G:\del *.tib" (G: being my external hard drive) as a "Before Backup Process" command, but it fails. Not beding one to give up so easily (snd thinking a file may have been in use) I tried using the command line of Unlocker to unlock and delete the files. This too failed from within Acronis. So, just how the heck do I backup to 2 places (for optimum data safety) and have Acronis automatically (or even using the command line tools available to XP and Unlocker) delet files when the drive areas get full? Do you guys do end user testing? Surely I am not the first to have these issues.
