    The reason I ask is because it says it is dismounting the drives.

    Hello
    Because I started this thread, I thought I should thank those who helped.
    The iso was a partial success in the respect that it created a backup. However, recovery was a problem as it said it is mounting drives C: and D but just kept spinning. I had to abort. I checked event viewer and the registry had issues. I ran chkdk and sfc and concluded I should recover with Acronis. So all is well and I thank you for your help. I too wish it worked out as I like Macrium and any problem was mine not the program.
    In fairness I must say that Acronis has too much stuff in it and I read where people have issues with it. Macrium is more user frindly. I have never had a failure with Acronis but have had failures with Win 7 and Macrium free. I hate to admit it but I must go with what works for me.

    Thanks for all the feedback - I'm sure you will find Acronis a reliable insurance package, I've relied on it for years.

    I only use the Windows Backup and have had very few problems.
