This seems to be a problem experienced by others as well. Apologies for posting if this has been resolved (did not see it). All Acronis products I have installed (TI 11, now TI 2009, and DD10) terminate operations with MS runtime errors. Example: Attempt to clone disk. I get to sizing partitions (either auto or manual) and the runtime error kicks in every time. I run a Lenovo T61 with Vista Business SP1. The T61 has a locked 6.5 Gig partition (recovery) which may be the culprit. There is no way to touch this partition without breaking something. What to do (I submitted tickets to Acronis a while ago but have not heard back). Thanks.
