I am running Acronis TI 9.0 Home (Build 3.677) under Windows XP with SP2 and all current updates. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it twice (cleaning the Windows registry of all "Acronis" entries each time after uninstalling it) and also have updated the TI drivers with SnapAPI as recommended to someone in another topic on this forum. When I try to make a backup of a partition on one physical, internal hard drive to a partition on another physical, internal hard drive, TI allows me to complete the wizard but then hangs at 0%. At that point I can only shut down my computer by using the power button. I am able to do the backup fine using the Rescue CD I created with TI, and I can mount and dismount an image I created using the Rescue CD. But I cannot make an image of the same source partition to the same destination partition while in Windows. I have two Western Digital external USB 2.0 hard drives, which are visible to TI both in the Rescue CD and under Windows -- but I am not including the USB drives in my backup tasks, so I don't think they are the problem. I do have Norton Ghost 10 installed on the machine and don't want to uninstall it until I can get TI to work under Windows. I also have Nero installed on my machine, but I do not have Nero's packet writing module InCD installed. I use ZoneAlarm Pro as a firewall, eTrust antivirus and Webroot's SpySweeper for anti-spyware. I have tried disabling all of them while making the backup with TI, but that did not help. I cannot disable Ghost. I have submitted a support ticket to Acronis on this problem with TI hanging at 0% when creating a backup withing Windows, but I am hoping some kind soul here can help me sooner. I'd really like to get rid of Ghost, but I can't do that until I can get TI to work on my machine. Thanks.
