Just two questions about Acronis Backup

Thread needs solution

I'm pursuing Tableau Certification, to save (all my important files, software) and the backup I recently installed Acronis True Image Home 11.

I created a backup of my entire C drive including the Dell partition without a problem.

Just Two Questions:

1)  Do I need to create a "Backup Rescue Disk" since I own the CD from where the program was installed?  If so, when would I use the rescue disk instead of the original CD when restoring?

2) There is a place in Acronis to "Create Backup LOCATIONS".  What is that for?  I already created two backup jobs that will make a backup to my USB hard drive.

Tobi, welcome to these public User Forums.

I would recommend downloading and reading the Acronis True Image 11 User Guide (PDF) document for help on how to use this very old application.

The first point you need to understand is the following section from the above manual:

1.3.2 Supported operating systems

•   Windows® 2000 Professional SP 4
•   Windows XP SP 2
•   Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
•   Windows Vista (all editions)

TI 11.0 went of of support by Acronis some 13 years ago and lacks support for many features and hardware of modern computers.
