Hello, I am trying Acronis True Image Home 2009, and I would like to know: 1. First run. First time I started ATI Home 2009, It started to spin my HDD for some time and it would not let go, also no message on what was going on. What was that? 2. Acronis versions. Can ATI Echo Workstation with Universal Restore, restore the image files that were created using ATI Home 2009 --- to any different hardware (since it is with universal-restore)? Is it a same *.tib for HOME/ECHO.W.S? 3. Speed/performance. I plan to run incremental backup on a partition with 20 GB used space, where I will have full backup once a week and incrementals during week days. There will be no major changes to data during the week (so increments wont be large). I'm interested in what restore time I will be looking at when trying to restore such backup? Just a rough estimate, like will it be fast more like 1-2 hours, or slow like 10 or 20 hours? 4. Tasks. 4.1. I will need incremental daily scheduled task. I will need to backup system partition (C: ), and several directories on D: partition. When creating tasks Acronis have separate options for backing up entire partition, and separate for doing just folders/files. So I'm wondering in how to setup tasks to best achive this? Should I create 2 tasks and schedulle both at same time e.g. to have both tasks run at 0:00 (midnight)? Will Acronis run one task after another? 4.2. How to create tasks so that it will do incrementals for a week, then start over, that is, so that it will do full backup again on 7th day, and start doing incementals again for next 7 days, and so on ? 5. Tasks import/export. Is it possible to save tasks (export/import), e.g. if I need to manually reinstall computer, so I can import back same task, -OR- , do I need to create tasks again? Thank you.
