Acronis problem

I'm trying to clone a hard drive with acronis9 but I get the problem "Failed to lock disc"
Any ideas what is wrong,I've never had any problems before

Are you trying to clone the drive you are running acronis on?

If so you need to run Acronis from the CD to do the cloning.

I hesitate to question such an expert as your goodself, but I regularly clone my primary disc to a slave disc using ATI. I have ATI on a 2 partition HD ad clone it to an internal caddy mounted slave. I also run an image on a USB HD. I have twice used the clone to cure a suspeced bug. I only used the ATI CD to boot, not as part of the cloning process.(W7)

Had same problem with ATI2009 first time I tried to clone, worked OK when ran from Disk.

May be the later versions have solved the problem.

Its always possible that this is not the problem in this case.

Yes, you are probably right - I switched to ATI 2010 when I moved to W7.
