Can I use Acronis 9.1 for creating an Image directly to a Linux Filesystem (ext2, ext3, Reiser)?

I want to write the Image of one partition to another partition, already formatted with a linux filesystem. I tried this, but it doesnt work. A general error occures.

I mentioned that e.g. for a fat/fat32/ntfs filesystem the free disk space is reported (it is recognized and can be used), but not for a linux-filesystem as destination.

dd is a tool included in all UNIX reincarnations and is able to copy images to files around as necessary
disk image includes contents of free space thus functionality of showing free space is useless at best.
