Will this version of Acronis create an whole disk image (or clone, I can never remember which is which) across a local/home network?

Jim, what do you mean by 'create a whole disk image across a network'?

If you want to image an active Windows OS disk, then ATI needs to run on the same computer in order to use the Microsoft VSS snapshot feature to capture data that is locked by the OS.  This cannot be done from a remote location due to locked files.

I understand.  What I want to do cannot be done.

Thanks
