Hello
When you wish to recover your system using this utility, do you use the Windows program at desktop or the rescue disc I created from the program?
The reasn I ask is because I used to have better luck using Acronis' disc rather than the program and wonderd if the same applied here.

Also, does the backup remove the existing one so that you only have one at a time or can you have more than one.
Thank you
Peter

I would stick with Acronis - far superior backup tool and I always run it under Windows, resorting to the boot disk only to recover from a drastic disk error.

Thank you, Pat.
Any idea why Acronis is 42GB and Win is 30GB?
Could verification have to do with it?
