Symptoms

Product may hang under specific circumstances.

There are 2 types of hanging:

Because Acronis products work with the storage system of an operating system on a very low level, there is a small risk that different conflicts on this level can lead to an operating system crash during backup or other operations. Please follow the instructions below to troubleshoot these issues, depending on what operating system is being used..

You can restore Windows Boot Loader manually using Windows utilities

Register the MAPI PST service by using either the MFCMAPI tool (go to Profile -> Advanced profile -> Add services to MAPISVC.INF... and select PST) or Mergeini.exe

Symptoms

1. You recover a machine from a disk backup using Acronis Bootable Media 

2. After recovery, MMS service does not start. If you try to start it manually, you get an error "Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion"

Since MMS cannot be started, the machine cannot be registered, with a message similar to Connection to the backup service has been lost.

Symptoms

  • When trying to restore any recovery point, the process just hangs on Loading
  • When checking the PCS logs on the agent machine, you see the error message like:
