Acronis Query

  jjss 19:48 13 Dec 2007

I'm about to trial Acronis 11 having never used this type of Backup software before.

My query is this: Does Acronis compress the selected partition for backup and roughly by how much?

I have a laptop which has the C drive as 73GB which has 43GB free space (the rest of the 80gb hd is manufacture recovery partition) My intention to to create an image onto a 80GB h/d which I have mounted in a disk caddy which has 63GB of free space.

I have tried looking through the help files for the answer.

I have Acronis 11. My HD contains approx 55.4GB which appears on Acronis as approx 33.3GB at the default setting. I think you can actually set the compression if you want to.
