7. Tips for getting the most out of your post

When posting your question try to share as many details as possible. The more detailed information you provide, the more likely you will get the proper advice. These questions will help you:
 

  • Which Acronis Product is causing trouble?
  • What operation was it busy doing when the problem occurred?
  • What's wrong?
  • What error does it show?
  • Were changes (like new hardware or software installation) made before the problem occurred?
