How to use Acronis True Image 2016 Step-by-Step

If you are going to do system disk cloning, we recommend that you do it using Acronis Bootable Media.
Notwithstanding when you begin cloning in Windows, the PC will reboot into the Linux condition the same as when booting from the protect media. Because of this, it is better to clone using rescue media. For instance, there might be a situation when your hard circle drives are distinguished in Windows and not identified in Linux. If this is the case, the cloning operation will fail after reboot. When booting from the Acronis disk, you have to ensure that Acronis True Image recognizes both the source and destination (target) disks before beginning the cloning operation.

Step-by-step guide
1. Make an Acronis Bootable CD.
2. Insert CD to your computer and boot up to Acronis CD and select Tools -> Clone disk

3. Choose Automatic (recommeded) and click Next

4. Select source hard disk (Hard Disk that we already install such us window and programs) and Click Next

5. Select target hard disk (Hard disk that you want to clone to) and click Next
    Immediately, It’ll show the confirmation screen of delete all data in target hard disk then click OK       to continue

6. Verify summery window then click Proced button to start clone your hard disk.
Once it's completed shudown your computer and take hard disk out. Done!!!!! :)
