Acronis and cloning probs

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello all. I am in dire need of some help here.
The situation is that I have a WD Black 1TB drive that has 2 partitions; my OS and everything else basically. The problem is that I cannot select my drive in Acronis in order to get the cloning wizard going. Doing a google search on the "GPT" designation after my drive has left me even more confused.

All I want to do is clone my boot partition so that in the event my drive dies, I'll be up and running ASAP.

What version of Acronis are you using? Here is the Acronis KB article discussing it.

I am using Acronis True Image WD Edition 2010 Build 14.010.

So I guess I need to change to an MBR disk. Let me read the ms article about that and see if I have any other questions. Thanks
