Have you tried creating an image and saving it to a hard rive or external drive. Then towards the end where you can select the advanced options like compression ratio, validation etc. choose the split archive/image option. This would create file sizes that you could burn yourself to CD/DVD's. Rather than directly burning with Acronis.
I've never used the direct burn feature in Acronis. I create my images and save them to an external HDD. I then backup those images onto DVD's. I've always been able to reload an image from a DVD in a pinch when I didnt have access to the external drive.
Just out of curriosity how large is your image?
I have an external drive but Win 7 says no to that, so I downloaded the image through my Home Network to a HP2.6 running XP.The image is now sitting in Shares Documents with a size reported as 12GB,containing 17 files and 3 folders.yes 17 files.
Just how I'll recover the image back to my Dell(running Win 7) I have no idea at this time , I'll have to do some reading.
When i feel up to it Ill try an Image(Win 7) using Acronis direct
to a hard drive( not through the network) and then to disks as you have suggested.
just on another subject, i bought a BOX Win 7 Home Premuim Upgrade as Staples had them on sale today $112.95. It's only good for one computer?
I understand there's a work around for that as well and not difficult to do. I suspect MS will be doing some revisions on this version at there next print. So it be....
