Hi i have tried acronis true image 8 on a xp sp1 1gig system 500+ram 80gig maxtor hard drive with 8mb cache. Hard drive using ITE 133 raid card. I have found a horrible bug that i cannot get rid of. In that i enabled secure zone and let the zone be on partition F: which is 8gig this i used to make image of my C: partition of 3gig using incremental. All worked great even system restore and was fast. But then i noticed the problem that every time i boot i gets to the post boot screen and hangs for 20 before option F11 acronis then another 15 seconds before it continues to boot system. I tried this on another pc thats has a different make hard drive western digital on a p3 500mhz system with xp sp1 and it has not slowed down the boot time. Is there a problem you have with maxtor 80gig 8mb cahe hard drives or ite raid cards. I did not have my maxtor mbr backupd but the only way is to erase the mbr and start afresh which i do not want to do as a lot of data transfering would need to be done for this. I have tried reformatting the maxtor C: partition a few times and reinstalled xp sp1 but has made no difference. Even though it has no acronis true image on it any more. It still is slow booting. Before acronis the 80gig maxtor 8mb cahe hard drive was very fast at boot time. Do you know of this problem and are you able to patch acronis true image 8 to remedy this. Then i can fix my hard drive to boot fast again please.
