Last update: 19-02-2013

Acronis True Image either cannot mount an image, when there is Utimaco SafeGuard Easy installed, or Acronis True Image hangs after mounting/unmounting an image. Restoring the backup may also decrypt the data


Acronis True Image gives an error message saying that an image cannot be mounted if there is Utimaco SafeGuard Easy installed on the machine.

Acronis True Image mounts or unmounts an image successfully but hangs after each of these operations if there is Utimaco SafeGuard Easy installed on the machine.

If you restore the backup, it may become decrypted.


Utimaco SafeGuard Easy is a securing tool and it encrypts files and folders.

When creating a backup, Acronis product sees the hard drive as unencrypted. Hence, restoring the backup decrypts it.


Update Ultimaco SafeGuard Easy to the latest build. If this does not resolve the issue, then uninstall Utimaco SafeGuard Easy.

Re-encrypt the hard drive after restoring the data.
