    Hello all, I am using True Image 8.0 build 786. I want to erase the drive overlay software (Maxtor) on the drive I'm using for XP. If I create an image, erase the drive, then restore the image, will True Image re-create the overlay? I guess what I'm asking does the overlay become part of the disk image? I'm having trouble setting up a dual boot configuration and I suspect it's the overlay software giving me the heartburn. Thanks.

    Chris

    Acronis makes an image of everything that's on a partition so I guess the answer is if the overlay software files are on drive C then the image will contain them and restore them.

    Hello Chris,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis True Image (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage/).

    Since the overlay software is part of the software environment, Acronis True Image will restore it as well as all the other software (inlcuding your operational system) on the partition (or disk).

    It seems that you would better contact Maxtor support for the possible solution. They should know how you can disable the overlay because it is their software.

    Thank you.
