    Full runs under linux and Safe runs under a descendant of DR DOS. The former fits more kinds of hardware (e.g., DOS has no direct support for USB so unless you BIOS can handle USB, SAafe mode dannot.


    But for some stuff that linux can't handle, sometimes Safe mode works.

    Hello all,

    Thank you for using Acronis Disk Backup software

    demoneye, please note that full version of Acronis Bootable Rescue Media is the main tool that should be used. The choice is not related to OS you're using on your computer. Safe mode is intended for use only if you've issue with the full version.

    Thank you

    You can't write to OS system files while the OS is running so you have to boot into a diff OS whenyou restore a system disk. Generally, all the backup imaging programs use linux as the OS for doing restores. It doesn't matter what OS you have on your disk, it's just a matter of what the restoration will be running under.

    Safe Mode is running under DOS--very limited interms of what hardware it can handle and generally much slower than using a more advanced OS like linux or XP or Vista.

    Under fullmode you run under linux (if you use the ATI boot CD) or XP (if you use the BartPE cd) or Vista (if you use a vistaPE CD).

    If you start your restore in ATI while running windows, the PC reboots into linux and then the restore runs under linux.

    Regardless of what OS the restore program runs under (linux, XP or VIsta), if it's restoring, for example, and XP system disk, then the restored disk will be XP. If it's restoring a vista system disk, then the restored disk will be vista.
