You can back-up to any media you wish with Acronis.

i mean create a mountable image. like an iso or similar.
so i can like mount it into Virtual Box and have a little test OS.

Acronis does have a Mount Image Wizard, under Operations>Mount Image in the main program menu.

Though I have never done it myself.

PS - if you have Acronis, all the details are in the Instructions, for Mounting and Un-mounting an Image. Vitual drive etc.

i no that, but i need to MAKE an image of my hdd so i can mount it in Virtual Box.

I don't understand your last comment - as I said Acronis will do what you want. Have not done it myself, but surely it is just a matter of following the Acronis Mount Image Wizard.

Making a back-up with Acronis *is* creating an Image! Once done, then go to the Wizard already mentioned.

but when making a back up it does it in its own format doesnt it? i think it is .tib.

anyways, ill have a play around. if i dnt post back ive probs done something wrong lol
thanks anyway.

OK - good luck.

but I don't know, that want you need to do to achieve what you want is make a copy of the partition, rather than an image. As you note, Acronis gives you a .tib file, which is Acronis specific.

I think the answer to the question that you posed in the opening post is "No"

Apologies if this proves to be wrong!!

Why do you want to do that? do you think it will work on another PC?????
