Hi folks. I'm just about to do my first full back up of my new computer with acronis TI2012.Obviously I've chosen "full" in back up method.In advanced settings should the "back up sector by sector" be left unticked?And should it be custom scheme as opposed to single version scheme etc?Thank you.

Thanks X7-250! I've just completed a full back up of my C:drive.It's 1000gb with 868gb free space.There's 44.9gb of used space yet my full Acronis back up is only 22.2gb?Is this because of compression?Does this sound about right?Thanks folks!

Acronis does not and never as backed up free space. Just do a full backup, in other words create a Image of the Drive to another Drive. This can be done without loading Acronis Just boot with external Drive connected and boot with Acronis CD in the drive

And why would you want to backup free space
