Acronis Migrate Easy, how to use free trial

by bassinbill42 / January 28, 2013 11:45 AM PST

I have a bigger Hitachi 500G sata HDD hooked up to my existing computer via the Vantec sata/ide to 2.0 adaptor. I downloaded the free trial of Acronis Migrate Easy, installed the software (minus the b.s software toolbar) My IBM desktop recognizes the added HDD. I opened the software went through the "add disk" prompts to format the used hard drive. after that was done, I went back to the start to click on "clone disk" procedure. I was asked to re-boot my computer to begin the procedure. Nothing happened. When it rebooted after a few minutes, all it said before Window started (which the OS did not restart) was 100% available and "disk not found" What gives? Any help is appreciated.
Thank you

The steps appeared but instead of the software beginning to clone the hard drive, it asked me to reboot the computer. After it restarted, windows had not begun and two messages came up. since then I have downloaded EaseUS todo backup software. Will use this instead. thank you for your response.
