Cause

Selecting a source partition as a destination for a backup affects Nonstop Backup driver and leads to very high computer load. So, Acronis True Image Home 2011 prohibits user from selecting a partition he wants to protect using Acronis Nonstop Backup as a destination location.

Generally it is not recommended to back up a partition onto itself: if a partition is damaged, backups stored on it will probably be lost. 

Solution

Select a different partition as a destination location for a Nonstop Backup.
