I have a 57GB external USB hard drive that I use for backups.I am considering buying Acronis True Image to back up and ghost my entire system, which currently occupies 27GB of my C drive.I'm not sure whether my external drive will be large enough to take full advantage of True Image. Can anyone please advise me?
You should be OK.....I have two hard-discs (both at 160GB). The main one is partitioned into smaller drives. In total, I have used around 40-50GB, and Acronis True Image seems to compress that into 15GB archives.
I use True Image, and you can compress the back up as much as you want.I generally do a full backup every Sunday then delete the previous weeks back up.So if you are doing a backup with no compression you can get two backups on your external drive.
My C drive contains 22GB and the default TI9 .tib file back up is about 15GB.
I guess most of my files are uncompressed files then to have the same backup size as Pine Man
Yes - you have plenty of room to do your backup. I have just backed up a large HD with 56Gb of used space - backed up to an external hd, the backup took 39Gb. Using Acronis TI 10.Cheers
Agree with the above but files types like mp3, avi, mpeg and zip don't compress very well so if you have a lot of these then your backup will be close to 27mb
for your thoughts on this.I have a lot of jpegs on my HDD. If I do a True Image compressed backup, and then later restore from this, will the quality of my jpegs have deteriorated? Or am I talking about two different types of compression?
According to Acronis, everything will be exactly as was before the backup, with no loss of quality.Cheers.
You can download the User Guide fromclick hereIt might help.
As long as your current HD contains less MB's of data than the capacity of the destination drive, then you will have no problem. You could even do a Clone of your HD.
