  1. You back up the whole disk that has ESX(i) 4.0 or 4.1 installed;
  2. Then you boot your machine from Acronis Bootable Media;
  3. You attempt to restore the whole disk into original location. The operation fails with the following error message:

    Failed to copy disks


This is a known issue.


(!) This has been fixed in the Build 17437 or higher (you can download the  latest build of Acronis Backup & Recovery 11 here). After installing the latest build, please recreate Acronis Bootable Media.

To resolve the issue without installing the latest build, as a workaround, restore only volumes from the disk into their original location.
