Acronis True Image 9 won't recognise Hard Drives

  PAE 19:13 18 Jul 2006

Due to some problem or other I have had to do an OS repair (XP). now Acronis tells me it cannot recognise my HDs. They are all there in My computer and I can access files on them. I have tried Uninstall and Registry Delete but makes no difference. I have checked BIOS and HD recognition is Auto. I have even mamanged to do a backup using Acronis but when I try to edit the schedule it says no HDs recognised. Help!

Just a guess but it maybe necessary to reinstall Acronis if you have repaired your o/s.

If that doesn't fix it try the Acronis Forum at the following link. click here

Have you tried Uninstalling and reinstalling True Image?

It could be that your repair has damaged/removed some files or access to them.

Nothing on the Acronis Forum and I have tried uninstall and reinstall. No effect. I have contacted Acronis Support but I thought here might be a bit quicker.

When you uninstalled acronis, did you look in Program files and also application data to see if there were any traces left of acronis?

I notice Acronis issued an update for True Image 9.0 on the 1 July. Have you tried updating with that?

There is a facility for deleting disks within the software (see `Help`) have tou used this at all?

Problem Sorted. I deleted absoloutly everything. After uninstalling I did a search for Acronis, True Image and Disk Director and deleted all the files that were shown; I then went into the Registry and using Find deleted everything that was found (talk about roots everywhere). Having done all that I did a fresh install but still had the problem. I take back the comment I made about waiting for service from Acronis, they came back within 2 days with a programme called SnapAPI which seems to reset all the drivers. I ran that and all now works perfectly. Thanks for all your advice.

I understand your feelings about Acronis, but, as I found when I became impatient, they do provide excellent service once they have thought the problem through.

Glad you are sorted.

Thanks for the update, I'm glad you were able to sort it out.

I certainly echo johndrews sentiments about Acronis, you always get a response, eventually. Far better service than I ever got from Symantec when I was struggling with various versions of Ghost!
