Another case of the user blaming the app. Human nature, I suppose.

This guy understands what went wrong in his ( unrelated ) case

You will find the vast majority of the SF TEAM members here using Paragon apps..

Tho. I don't use the Paragon Defrag - I have tried it, but it is an industrial version , insists on going into boot time mode , defrags everything - but takes a while. The kind of thing you would leave running overnight in an industrial setting - not necessary for a home user.

You will notice I made no derogatory comment about the Acronis - in fact I provided a link to a free version - for those who wish to try and see if they like it.

No worries.
Actually I think I am with you Terry. I have never used the other products so cannot speak for them. However, when ever I needed it Acronis came to my rescue.
Like you I have two partitions, one with XP Pro, the other running Seven/7127.

Here's my question. Which is the preferred method:
To make a Acronis images from within Seven or from XP.
I have Acronis installed in XP so usually boot to XP and do my image backups of both XP & 7 drive partitions.

I haven't (yet) installed Acronis in Seven. Should I make image backups from within Seven? Does it make any difference, do you think...

It makes no difference. Like you, I have xp and win 7 on dual boot. I run Acronis in xp and backup both from xp. And I have restored both, so they work fine. At some point in then near future, I will run Acronis in Win 7. I am using Acronis True Image 11 and not sure yet if I will need to go to 2009. I will probably try 11 first.

For defrag, I use Diskeeper 2009 and it works in the background with no problems on either operating system.

SIW2, did not mean to be derogatory. Just pointing out another comment I saw on the forum.

Paragon Software - hard disk partitioning, drive backup, hard disk management, system performance optimizing

The free version Paragon do is very limited , tho. - you might try a trial version.
Thanks SIW2
In view of your recommendation I shall try Paragon Drive Backup -

Hi Any Key,

I had a look at that - no, it isn't going to work.

That was a special promotional edition ( limited availability) - I am not at all sure where they got those links from.

It doesn't have the full power and functions of the paid version - but is still very good for free.

From what I understand, one of the things not included is the ability to mount the archives ( it may be in the GUI but the function isn't there.)

Nevertheless, you may find it does everything you need.

While i'm sure there are numerous 3rd party softwares that can do the trick, it's just sad to see that Microsoft couldn't just build into the OS a proper incremental backup solution..
