Re: XOSL and disk imaging software like Acronis True Image Home- hard disk corrupted
- I'm really sorry you have had such a trauma with Acronis.
I have been using XOSL and restoring images with the DOS based version of Ghost on a regular basis for years. Never had a problem with a restored partition not being recognized or any sort of corrupted discs though the newest Windows OS I have done is Vista.

I've tried this twice with 2 different external drives and the effect is the same. ATIH support is abysmal and would, I'm sure, disown all responsibilty if told that I was using XOSL.
