Re: Backup Windows 7 and Backtrack dual boot with Acronis

Hello,
If you are using Acronis True Image Home 2010, then users of Windows Vista and Windows 7 will also convert from Windows Backup created vhd files in tib archives. This is useful when older Windows backup files will be preserved. Additionally offer tib files by compressing the advantage that they consume less space than the same content vhd files. Both the conversion into tib-vhd-files and vice versa as well as support for the migration from Windows XP to Windows 7.

Re: Backup Windows 7 and Backtrack dual boot with Acronis

Hello,
I am running the Backup Nonstop. Restarting the computer after the Nonstop Backup icon in the System Tray Gives the FOLLOWING message
"Nonstop Backup Turned IS OFF"
When I turn on the hand-and-click program Acronis is "Backup" and then "Nonstop backup" the backup control center Nonstop Tells Me That Nonstop the backup is running. Is There a setting I can change to get this notification icon to Work Correctly?

Re: Backup Windows 7 and Backtrack dual boot with Acronis

Hi,
Does the tray icon intransitive in the "OFF" state or does it switch to the "Running" state after the computer has been "there for a while? Have you verified NSB That Actually IS still running (still Creating backups)?
