I use Acronis true image 11. I run the boot disk to validate the image and, invariably, when it is finished it does not then boot into windows but gives me a 'C:\' on the dos screen inviting me to use the help menu. To get out of this I have to switch off the machine - surely this is not what Acronis intended.
Validating within the OS (Vista Home Premium) always results in a termination insisting that the image is corrupt. The image wasn't corrupt as I found out when a Restore was needed. Why should this happen. Is it a Vista thing?
I am at the moment working on my old machine whilst making an image to the HP Pocket Medua drive on the other.
I'll try to validate it first from within windows, and then by booting up with the disk and validating whilst that disc is in the drive. I would have expected that it would finish up by booting into windows - the disk still being in cd drive.
