Thanks quick draw, I just posted a very long reply to your post... posted it....and now it is not showing up. I don't have time to go thru it again and I'm not my computer. When I get back, I'll post a screen grab of their error report.
This is the warning message ! The selected disc will be migrated as is (disks layout will remain MBR )
(this is not the system report utility message)
My computer has not exhibited any problems when using normally, I just wanted to confirm that my backups were going to be able to be recovered properly. Acronis has 2 ways you can recover backups - You can choose partition mode or disc mode... the warning message above in bold is what comes up when choosing the disc mode option
