Using Acronis True Image

Hi,

 

I purchased WD Scorpio Blue 500GB internal HDD and was hoping to use True Image to make an image of my existing HDD (Non-WD) and migrate to WD 500GB for my Laptop.

 

But the installation did not complete as True Image could not find any WD product in my Laptop.

 

Is there anyway I could use the free True Image to make an Image and migrate to new 500GB without needing to buy it from Acronics.

 

Thanks,

Ravi.

Re: Using Acronis True Image

I'm having exactly the same problem with a 750GB Scorpio Blue, the Acronis Align software sees the drive, but Acronis True Image won;t install as it cannot see the drive.

Re: Using Acronis True Image

This version of Acronis is for WD drives only

 

Try another software to clone the drive

Re: Using Acronis True Image

All,

 

I managed to sort this out by doing the following:

 

- Installed 2012 Acronis True Image (Trial version)

- Backed up my old HDD into a network drive

- Created a boot media using the trial version Acronis True Image

- Got myself a USB to SATA docking station - Formatted and Partitioned my WD500 GB

- Aligned the WD500 GB using the Free Acronis Disk Align software (Free download from WD)

- Installed the new WD500 GB HDD into my laptop and booted with the Boot Media created above

- "Recovered" the back up from Network drive into my WD500 GB.

 

After 2 hours I have everything restored into my new HDD, and all working fine...

 

Thanks to Acronis for the wonderful software .

 

Cheers,

Ravi
