Using Acronis True Image Home for creating drive images RRS feed

  • Question

  • I note that there a number of posts regarding this product and WHS here and at the Acronis support forum. I like to use True Image to create an image as I build a new system. At each major step I create an image of the C Drive and if the next step really makes a mess of things then I can go back to my last "good" version.

     

    From Acronis' standpoint WHS is not supported, but I thought that my simple use of it should be error free. It was until I added my secondary storage which happens to be a RAID5. Now any use of True Image results in an unhealthy secondary storage error. The only fix is to remove and reinstall the RAID5.

     

    I have duplicated this action so I have a high degree of confidence that True Image is the culprit. This may be particular to my server build but I would suggest that anyone proceed with caution if using Acronis True Image Home.
