When backing up with Acronis TI should I stop

  Sapins 11:40 15 Mar 2007

Using the computer? e.g. can I still peruse the forums, check e-mail etc:?

I personally don't because the processor will be working hard doing the backup and also I don't want the remotest chance that the backup file MIGHT get mangled. This may be unlikely BUT. I have set my backup in the options to be highest priority and it only takes about 12 mins when I go and make a cup of tea

TI is fast enough that on mostpc it's not going to take too long for a backup to complete, look on it as an opportunity to stretch your legs and have time away from the pc (as you're supposed to do anyway).

My understanding is that it locks key files (don't know how) as it processes them. I assume that it knows what it is doing as, otherwise, I would expect to have to boot into a separate shell dedicated (e.g. not in Windows) as one does one restores the active partition.

Having said that, I leave it to complete on its own (mine takes about 3 mins).

I Have used IE7 whilst backing up with
Acronis 9 with no problms, but it wil take abit longer. If you are running any automatic defrag program disable it wile cronis is running

Thanks for the replies, I will leave it alone to get on with it.

When creating a Image you are better using the Acronis Rescue disc from DOS as it works faster and cleaner
