    Re: removing all of acronis

    Hello Jesse24,

    Are you talking about residual TI files and registry entries or the disk space taken by the Acronis Secure Zone? If it's the SZ then you should have removed this via the Manage Acronis Secure Zone Wizard prior to uninstalling TI.

    To remove the SZ and return the disk space to an existing partition you will need to temporarily reinstall TI, remove the SZ via the Manage Acronis Secure Zone Wizard and then uninstall TI again. Finally, use the manual uninstall procedure provided by Irina Shirokova to remove any residual TI files and registry entries.

    However, if you have already manually deleted the SZ via the Windows Disk Management utility and been left with x GB of unallocated space and don't own some form of Partition Management software, then the following procedure should recover it:

    1. Reinstall TI and use the Manage Acronis Secure Zone Wizard to create a temporary Secure Zone (SZ).
    2. On the "Disk Selection" screen select the drive that contains the unallocated space and click "Next".
    3. On the next screen, again select the drive that contains the unallocated space and then click "Next".
    4. Create a SZ of the maximum size available by moving the slider accordingly. Click "Next".
    5. Select the option "Do not activate Acronis Startup Recovery Manager" and then click "Next" followed by "Proceed". Depending on where the SZ was created, Windows may need to reboot to complete the creation.
    6. Once the SZ has been created, use the Manage Acronis Secure Zone Wizard to remove the SZ.
    7. In the "Redistributing Space" screen select the partition that you want to give the space to and then click "Next" followed by "Proceed". TI will then probably reboot and remove the SZ.
    8. After finally rebooting into Windows, right click on "My Computer", select "Manage" > "Disk Management" and check that the unallocated space has been reassigned to your chosen partition/disk.
    9. Uninstall TI again and then use the manual uninstall procedure provided by Irina Shirokova to remove any residual TI files and registry entries.

    Regards
