Can you provide a bit more information?

Which Acronis TI version are you using?

How were you booting your PC, normal/safe mode/ATI recovery disk?

Where are your backups, HDD/CD/external HDD?

How exactly were you trying to recover the data?

In certain circumstances Acronis with only work with a bootable disc. The circumstances include where the software has been downloaded rather than installed from the Acronis CD.

Acronis gives the opportunity to burn a bootable disc from its menus.
