    If I have Ubuntu installed in a partition of my HD - XP on the other - can True Image Acronis make an Ubuntu disk image and restore it ?

    Sorry, but a fast search in the forum didn't get any result, and today I 'm very busy.

    I assume that you use ext4 as your file system. I'm not sure if Acronis supports that now - it didn't in earlier versions AFAIK. Why don't you use Clonezilla? It's free and very reliable.

    Thank. I know Clonezilla, but I would prefer to use Acronis... but it seems that is not possible or useful.I'm not much experienced with Linux: Clonezilla can restore by external support as Acronis does ? Or it need the command line from Linux ?

    My Acronis version is 11.0 8.101, and I don't know if it works with ext4 . Someone knows it ?

    Sorry, I don't understand that question. Do you mean if it can restore from an external medium (e.g. harddisk)? Yes, it can.

    No. It has a menu that's rather easy to understand - see the screenshots here.

    You can download the user guide for your version of Acronis from their site. It should have a section called something like 'Supported file systems'. The answer lies within.

    fwiw, I often use Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Workstation (from a recovery disk only). Its user guide says the following:
