Acronis 2017 Backup from USB not being saved.

I am using Acronis 2017 from a USB flash drive and I just made a backup image of my Windows 7 Install. That backed up fine no problems.

I upgraded to Windows 10 and got all my settings set up. Then I try and backup and there are no errors using the Linux Version Bootable USB as I always do on this older computer. There was no erros and I set it to shut down after backup. I also tried without it shutting down.

Here is how I do this and have always done it and never had an issue.

Backup MY 256 GB to my Internal 1 TB HDD backsups are in a folder called BACKUPS and each Backup is named the date and the .tib file like today was named.

hpe8300-W10-11.13.21 

The one from this morning was done the same way in the folders and the .tib file is named.

hpe8300-5.13.21 

I have never had this issue. I tried booting to a PE version but it skipped and went to Windows even when I get the Boot Menu F9 and choose the name of the USB.

I may have the wrong USB for the PE Maybe I have 2 one for UEFI and one for Legacy. I will try to find a PE or make it with Legacy.

And please don't try to say I need new versions. They added that blasted stupid calander and also on newer versions when I try to restore an image all the back ups pop up it does not let me browse for the one I want before all backups pop up. My 2017 works just fine most of the time. I do have 2018 but 2017 is currenty installed.

Thanks for any help.

Chris, welcome to these public User Forums.

If your ATI 2017 rescue media USB stick was working correctly / booting the same PC when it was using Windows 7, then it should work the same on Windows 10.

Did you actually upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7 when 7 was already booted to the desktop, so that it kept your installed programs etc?  If so, then the OS BIOS boot mode should not have changed from how it was on Win 7.

All Acronis bootable rescue media is capable of booting in both Legacy / MBR and UEFI / GPT boot modes and has been since UEFI was supported by Acronis.

The Linux and WinPE versions of the rescue media both operate in the same way - the key difference being in device support available where the WinPE media has the capability to have additional device drivers injected during the build process.
