So .. I foolishly upgraded from TI 11 to 2009 and .. it just doesn't work!! I'm using Vista with SP1 and when trying to create a full backup, Acronis goes through all the steps and then on the final step click OK to create the backup and I'm taken straight back to the schedule options. I've tried selecting the task in the schedule window then going to the top menu and select 'start' but does it start? I'll give you one guess. I've been using TI for years so I'm no newcomer to this. I've tried just about everything to get my backup to start without success, it just sits there and does zero! I've contacted Acronis but hear nothing. Looking through the forums it seems that this is not unusual. Anyway, I just thought I'd try posting here to see if anyone can help with this or are we just stuck with a buggy program?
