Hi, after a repair XP has problems, i have Acronis with a copy of this laptop on an external HDD, made last year, and another made last week, if I put last years copy in, and it makes it all worse, can I put last weeks copy and at least get it back to what it is today.
'can I put last weeks copy and at least get it back to what it is today'.
This may be a typing error on your behalf but presumably what you mean is can you get it back to what it was last week?
When you use Acronis it completely installs on your HD exactly as it was when the copy was made so you could install the one you made last year and try and get your system working and if you are not happy install the week old one afterwards and try that. What you cannot do is try either of the two copies and then revert to 'what it is today'.
