using Acronis to restore my Acronis differential backup image
Is it required that the target drive I am restoring to be totally formatted?
I used the Acronis boot disk and requested a restore be done to my HDD, pointed to my Acronis backup file on my external HDD, but no progress bar ever appeared. The only thing that occurred to me was that my OS was still on the HDD and Acronis was expecting it to be a formatted disk? Is that a requirement that is documented somewhere?
If so, it would have been nice to see an error message stating that. If not, what should I have done to kick off the restore instead of sitting there clueless for an hour? :-(
Thanks in advance to all who reply,
