Hi,
I have this strange issue with Acronis true image and I have my image disappeared with out a trace??

Well the config of my system is windows xp pro running on C: I have created a image via Acronis on I: second hard drive if u double click the I: drive you can see the image file has been completed . I right clicked my I: drive to find it heavily defragged I ran the disk defragmenter to find all the data GONE?
This has happened twice now... I have tried on another partition of the second hard drive but same issue...

Can anyone help?

Can you defrag images?

Most strange indeed, have you installed the lastest build of true image as they have been fiddling around with it recently. click here

I have the most recent update installed , getting support out of Acronis, Inc. is like getting blood out of stone, I may have to try Norton Ghost or Powerquest Drive Image.


Any suggestions?

An image of a disc is just that - an exact copy.

Re-ordering the contents of an image (defragging) results in a file that is no longer an image - it is now a jumbled mess.

Defrag the source drive before imaging is the answer.

Jazzypop well i have learnt this the hard way , but it just show why is this not in the Manual.(or is it ?-i havent read it)

I defrag my drive(s) with TrueImage 'images' on without problem.
