This article applies to:

  • Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 (All Editions)


There were several reports that Norman Endpoint Protection deleted Acronis drivers' files, which lead to an unbootable system state.

It is recommended to disable Norman Endpoint Protection prior to installing Acronis Backup & Recovery 10.
