    Set Me Straight

    Hi, long time reader - first time poster.

    I have Acronis B/U and read something here today that surprised me.

    Basically the post said Acronis Backup CD was created and then Acronis was deleted from the computer.

    To do a backup or restore a back-up the CD was used.

    Is this correct ? May I delete the installed program now that I have rescue media made ?


    Thanks for any clarification.

    No..... The Acronis Rescue Media is intended to allow booting to Acronis to allow either Imaging or Restoring without booting into Acronis. If you want to only use the Acronis Rescue Disk then I suppose you could do without the app installed, but there are many other features in the app that may not be available on the Rescue Disk. Check out some of the other features by opening the app and looking around.

    Ted,

    Thanks. I was just thinking that if all I really wanted to do was backup and/or restore my data, the CD Rescue Media would do the job I was most interested in.

    Thanks for such a rapid reply.

    sarge,
    Hello... one other thing to consider.... What if your CD\DVD RW dies? (Does happen) So if you have TI installed, (with Recovery manager activated.. F-11) you don't need the CD recovery disk ...But it's a good thing to have both , just to cover all bases. Regards Fred

    Fred,

    Thought of that after reading Ted's post. Now I have triple protection. I have a 500 gig drive with C: for windows, D: for programs, E: for files (downloads) and F: for photos. I also have a 1TB drive which is specifically for backups.

    In addition I have a USB to SATA/IDE adapter I got from WorldStart and have older IDE drives from older computers that I store stuff on with ease. ( I NEVER throw away a drive - LOL )

    Thanks for the confirmation.
