  1. I am running Windows XP Home, SP3. 250G HD. 2G Ram.

    I had an external hd backup, 80G. It got full so I pulled up the external HD and hit delete, thinking I would delete the Data. However (I am using Acronistrue Image 8) when I tried to start another Incremental back up Acronis told me it "could not find any hardisks". Ok, I decided to install a 250G hard drive backup, this I did. It shows up everywhere it should. My computer/pc management Etc,BUT still Acronis says it "can not find any hard drives".What have I done and how do I get out of it? Is there any other ***** proof backup system other than Acronis? jopras

    The simplest most ***** proof way to back up your files is: "Copy and Paste".

    Also check if there is an update for your current software that you use.

    Hi there, I'm sorry I gave you a bit of misinformation, Iam running Acronis True Image 9, not 8. Don't know if this makes any difference. I am still lost on this, i am not that much of a techie. jopras
