Acronis True Image 2014. I have on a dedicated partition some old images of PC system, Time ago i renamed the folder where is the storage of the system images. Then i have deleted some of the oldest images. Well, every time that i start Acronis it recreate the old empty folders. Even if i delete all the list of images, occasionally I find the partition with numerous empty folders, with the name of the old images. I tried to delete the reg entries related to the old locations, but I did not solve the annoying problem. I would like suggestions about the registry entries to be deleted. thanks

Antonio, welcome to these public User Forums.

All information about backup files and locations is not stored in the Windows Registry - this is held in an internal database used by ATI.

To clean out the database information would require forcing a rebuild of the database which would then lose any information about current backup activity until your backup tasks run again.
