I am creating a Windows 10 image to deploy.   Before I do so, I want to run the Windows 10 decrapifier (available on Spiceworks).

Is the following the correct order of events to image the laptop:

1) login as a local admin, run the decrapifier
2) run Sys Prep
3) create TIB file using Acronis boot CD, and USB stick to store image on.

Acronis:  I have a server and I want to make a copy of it using Acronis Backup AdvancedWS_11.7, now I want to make this server virtual, put it as hyperV, can I do that with Acronis? or is there any other tool that you know of?

Thank you everyone.

I wish to cancel a backup which appears to be running without my starting it.
The PC is running windows 7 Professional 64 bit

I am using Acronis Backup version 12 which is described when I click the "About" button as follows:

Web console service: v.12.0.2607

Backup management server: v.12.0.3622

Backup management console: v.12.0.6081

When I launch backup Exec in Microsoft explorer using Http://localhost:9877/

And observe the Status it indicates that a backup is being performed with 52% complete.

I normally manually start backups and wish to start another backup without waiting for this backup to complete.

How can I cancel the backup that is running (or any backup that is running).
Powerring down the PC and poering up again makes no difference, even with the MMS service stopped (Acronis Managed Machine Service)

Software recommendation for Bare Metal Restore of Dissimilar Hardware.  I have an older Asus VivoBook S500C running current version of Windows 10.  I would like to purchase a new laptop and do an image restore without starting from scratch reinstalling individual software packages.

The Lenovo T470 has mSATA drive; I tried to use the above software for Lenovo T470, but did not work.

Question: Is there a free software for mSATA drive monitor please.

Thanks,

Has anyone used Acronis Server Backup 12.5 (or any server backup) to a AWS S3 cloud storage? Does AWS accept FTP or SFTP connections to S3 Storage?
It seems their cloud storage is priced well. $276/yr for a TB. Any comments to cloud storage in general for backups?

We are deploying Windows 10 workstations using True Image.  I want to set browser default to IE, and PDF default to adobe.  
The 2 methods I researched are below.  In your opinion, should I build the defaults into the image, or just use GPO?  
Also,  if I choose to build the defaults into the image, will the OSD method work with Acronis True Image?  Or will I have to implement this a different way?

Hi,

I am replacing an internal HD with an SSD as the current mechanical drive is beginning to fail.  The current disk is dynamic so I cannot clone it using the provided software.  Easiest thing that I think I can do is backup the current drive using Acronis and restore to new disk.  How would I then make the new drive bootable, so it could take over from the old drive?

I have a new laptop with an unformatted SSD. I have a Acronis TIB Windows 10 image I want to load on the laptop.  How do I accomplish this?  Do I simply load it on a USB, and boot to USB?

Could someone give me the basic rundown on how to create a Acronis Image, and then load it on a new workstation?

Acronis True Image 2019 just released!

Create a reliable backup. Make sure you always have dependable copies of your data so you can restore your entire system or individual files.

Are TIB files created by acronis true image bootable by default?  If not, how do I accomplish this?

I have up-to-date Time Machine backup, recent Acronis full backup and iTunes Library all on USB drives. Many data files also on iCloud

What would be my best next steps?

Hi peeps

Is there a way of grabbing the configurations of a Windows 7 machine and then somehow having all of the applications and configurations made to that machine exported into a virtual terminal services server (on 2008R2 or 2012 depending on application compatibility) so that when you log onto that TS server it has the same applications/configs as the Windows 7 machine?

Is the easiest way for me to use something like Acronis to clone the application sections? Or is something like this possible using Vmware products?

I have Vmware Esxi 5.5 running on our infrastructure.

Thanks for helping

I'm running Acronis True Image 2016 on my Win 10 Pro (X64) laptop as my backup solution. Whenever I run a backup, I get one or more "failed to backup file or folder" message which I can ignore or retry (the retry never works so I always ignore). It happens on different files almost every time. This morning, for example, it failed to backup a .PDF. There were probably more that failed but I chose to "ignore all". This can happen the backup runs on a scheduled basis (in which case, the backup simply fails) or it can happen when I run it manually. I'm not sure if it is happening on full backups but do know that it happens on incremental backups.

One of the odd things about this is that I ran two backups this morning. The source folders and files were the same but the destination drives / folders were different. The error popped up on the first run but did not popup on the second.

Any ideas?

I would like to upgrade a desktop PC to a larger boot drive. It's running a 6th gen core i7 processor. The boot drive is a one (1) tb ssd by Sandisk. Running out of room on the drive, so I purchased a 2 tb Micron drive. How can I transfer the data and programs? It's running under Win 10 pro 64 bit. I did back it up to an Acronis image, Thanks for any and all advice.

Is there an easy (or proven) way to basically move a HD to a new computer, keeping everything intact?
Existing computer is getting a little long in the tooth, but of course user doesn't have all disks, etc., to reinstall.
In win7 is there a type of bare metal restore I can run?
I've also heard Acronis has an option to restore a backup to a new computer?
Both are Dells, old one an optiplex 3010 & new one an optiplex 3050, both running 64bit Win7.
Suggestions?

We are trying to clone a client's machine that has Quickbooks and Quickbooks Point of Sale 2013. We are cloning from a old 80GB Seagate SATA drive to a NEW Crucial 250GB SSD using Acronis True image. The clone "successfully" finishes and we can boot the system with the SSD. The issue arises when we open MS Office or Quickbooks and it asks for a re-activation. Normally not a problem but  it alarms the customer who would like to do this to another machine that has had the HDD replaced many times (long story). In addition the original 100GB drive also ask for activation and can not find the POS files after the clone is done. This also happens on the SSD, but we believe that it is linked to what is causing the activation issue. Again, this aggravates the customer as we assured that the original drive will be untouched ( and it was ) but can not find any reason for this. we have resolved the POS issue.

My question is: Is there any absolute way that this can be done that not cause re-activation, or makes sure that the drive is a 100% true copy of the original?

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

After backing up macOS 10.11.3 -  .MOV files will not play. Backup was with Acronis 2018 to local HD.

OS reports "Cannot Play Video" Photos cannot play this video because it uses an unsupported format."

The OS was not restored, only backed up. macOS reported after backup - had to 'Restore' photo library

Other format files (e.g. .mp4) play OK. .MOV files OK on my iPhone iOS 11.2.6

How can I ?? these .MOV files to play?

Dear Experts,

I just got in a Samsung EVO 960 and put it in a new Dell Optiplex 3050. I started off trying to restore a Acronis image backup and Acronis did not recognize the EVO 960. Next I tried installing Windows 10 from a DVD and Windows 10 doesn't recognize it either. Is said to go to Samsungs web site and download the drivers but the driver there is not a "F6" driver.

   I think the Dell recognizes it. It see it in the M.2 slot. So what am I missing? Nothing recognizes it.....

I need to install windows update KB940349 on windows server 2003 as acronis backup requires it to avoid snapshot issues.

Before i go ahead and install and risk having a server that won't come back.

Has anyone encountered any problems with KB940349 on windows server 2003 and did it require a restart?

Fresh New install of Windows 10 Pro on a brand new SanDisk Ultra II SSD  960 gb drive. Wanted some advice on the following.

Here is what I have an old Seagate Momentus 500 gb 7200 that failed after 7 years of great service. However I would like to figure out the best way to get some if not any of the data and files programs off of it. I was able to launch the HD but it would freeze after several minutes. I can see all the files on the system ( Through a Rosewill USB connected HD cradle.) but suspect a bad sector or some corrupt files.

The old Hard Drive has SAP Oracle SQL server and many other great programs on it I use for work. I do not know which would be best to recover any if I can at all from the old hard drive.

I also have a restore point and or a backup image. I am trying to determine which. I did. It was a week ago and I did it late at night when I first started experiencing problems. So I cannot remember which it was. It would be at least a week ago.

Since I now have a new SSD and a new install of Windows 10 Pro , I do not know which one I should do that might give me back the maximum amount of data returned with programs in tact if possible...?

My only other concern is if I have some kind of virus, malware or worse that caused the HD failure. Could I theoretically be copying the problem right back on to this new install? I did have McAfee but did not realize the virus may have been out of date. Now updated across my network. Wondering if …
