Problem with True Image 10 on Win XP
My Windows XP (SP3) installation has recently become corrupted, and I'm trying to restore it from a recent Acronis back-up.
Have accessed Acronis True Image 10 Recovery by selecting F11 during the boot sequence; but unfortunately it is mis-recognising the drive-letter assignments.
I have a legacy multi-boot system, with Windows 98 on the C: partition of my system drive, and Windows XP on the E: partition.
I also have two data drives, one with drive letter D: and the other with F: (which contains my Acronis back-ups).
True Image has for some reason swapped the E: and F: drive letters: so it thinks my back-up files are on Drive E:
When I select restore C: and E: to the system drive, it says it's going to swap drive letter E: to F:, which obviously I don't want. That would presumably mean my Windows XP installation would no longer be on the correct drive letter, and nothing would function correctly
How should I proceed?
(N.B. I have a copy of the Acronis back-up files on an external HDD: so one possible solution may be to disconnect the internal F: drive, and use an external HDD drive to source the Acronis back-up files. Hopefully the drive letters would then revert to their correct designations. However that would be a hassle, and disconnecting the F: drive risks bending the pins of the connector, which has happened in the past.)
