I just want to test out the "Recovery" function. I have 2 physical hard drives - 1 SATA 250GB and 1 IDE 120GB with SATA to IDE connector. Windows XP reported the IDE 120GB HD as an USB hard drive, but it's functional. I did "Backup" the image of the Windows XP partition in the IDE 120GB HD. I tried to restore it by going through the "Recovery" steps. True Image rebooted my system and load itself. After going through BIOS "Starting Acronis Loader..." then "Acronis Logo Loading, please wait..." I saw the True Image program trying to restore my Windows XP partition, but the screen lasted for like 2 seconds. My system rebooted to the current Windows XP. No change at all. It didn't restore to my old Windows XP backup. So I think it bascially "skip" the restoring step. Thanks! edit: I didn't store the "Windows XP partition" backup image in Secure Zone and didn't activate "Acronis Startup Recovery Manager". Could that be a problem?
