Windows 7: Acronis Modus Operandi

Acronis Modus Operandi

Hi Folks, I had Acronis installed before I created a new Admin account and demoted myself to a Standard user.
Should I do a backup from the Admin or Standard account.?

You would have run it from the Admin account I believe. Just as with Windows 7's own backup only running with admin privilege. I believe it will have to be run from admin, as standard users do not have access to a lot of files. A Guy

Hi A Guy,
I have not tried running Acronis yet, but have used Auslogics Defrag and was asked for the admin password before it would open. Will try Acronis next time I'm on my Laptop.
