I am new to the forum, please forgive me & redirect this if necessary. First install of Acronis True Image Home 2009 on an old laptop (no other Acronis porducts there). When first starting, a pop up suggested one-click protection, which included setting up the Acronis Secure Zone. I misread the numbers (it looked like 30 Meg Bytes to me), and clicked to go ahead. The system wanted to reboot to continue (I really needed an image on an external drive before any of this started) - and I did, Operation 1 of 4 resizing partition is when I saw that it was resizing from 56 GB -> 26 GB - not a good thing. I did not panic, but let it continue. Then got an operation error: Internal error: ReqBlocks miscalculated. I was sweating, saw no way out, hit Esc key, it exited gracefully, and rebooted. Yikes - I still had windows. I am very disturbed by all of this. There should have been A LOT more warning for a very dangerous operation w/ no backup, for someone who was functioning in tired mode. Am I just too picky? Should I escalate this? Thanks, Jim A.
