Acronis True Image Home

I Image my C drive on the 2nd partition of the same drive. I then copied the image to an external drive. If I lose my drive that my C drive is on and then replace it with a new drive can I Image from my external drive to the new Hard drive and it will be the same size and make? The reason for this question is my image will be comming from a different drive than it was image to.

I do the very same thing and have restored successfully from the external drive. External drive is different from installed drive.

Just be sure that your Acronis restore disk can see the external drive after you boot it. Boot it and go thru the restore menu option and ensure that the drive and file can be seen/selected.

Acronis can restore the Windows partition to the same disc without issue.

For a New Disc:
Provided the "Used" space does not exceed the total space on the new drive, Acronis will restore the image to a new drive of any size. Larger or smaller.


As mentioned, make sure you burn a Restore CD.
While restoring to the same drive can be done from within Windows, there may be times where the disc is needed.

You should always do a test run to make sure everything will work properly. There should be no issue however.
