Acronis back up software fails on 'Money'



I've just learnt the hard way that the back up software Acronis True Image
2009 (and I assume the previous versions I migrated from) does not faithfully
back up what Acronis describe as 'dynamic data.' Such data is included in
things like 'Money', I learn!

I last did a full image back up in mid December and relied on 'differential'
back ups from then. In early Feb a power surge wiped my hard disk and a
turned to my external HD and Acronis True Image 2009 for a full sytem
restore. It did this, all except for the data in Microsoft Money from the
date of my last full image onwards! I shall have to try and reconstruct two
month's data!

Acronis True Image has its limitations.

I guess it's best (as prompted by Money!) to back up to diskette on a
regular basis or to use the built in MS back up software on your PC (or other
OS back up software) to an external hard drive (which I know from experience
will faithfully record data of this sort).

Any comments, similar experience, hints or solutions would be great.

I have XP Pro (SP3), Acronis True Image 2009 and store back ups on an
external hard drive.

See if you have an image of a later *.mbf (Money Backup File) file
in your Acronis backup. Do you have a *.mbf backup on other media,
such as a USB flash drive?
