All the communications and data transfers between the components of the product are SSL-encrypted

To create a consistent image of an encrypted partition it has to be done in sector-by-sector mode

The problem is in incorrect SSL certificate generation for intercomponent connections of Acronis products. As workaround, try disabling SSL encryption

Acronis Storage Node does not support swapped drives. Managed vaults should only be created in permanent locations

This has been fixed. Upgrade to Acronis vmProtect 7

Acronis Secure Zone cannot be created on a disk protected with low-level encryption software

After restoring a disk encrypted with Check Point software, the partitions on it may become inaccessible

In some cases Norman Endpoint Protection deletes Acronis drivers' files

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 inadvertently reboots the machine when run if there is File Securer installed

Rebuild MBR after restoring the disk encrypted with McAfee
