I want to make drive images of my os drives & copy them to a
removeable.
Tried the trial Acronis. It seems simple and does the job. But I also
want to image some disks that are on our home network. Acronis doesn't
seem able.
Any other recommendations?

Their "create image" wizard doesn't show anything but local drives.

Are you using the latest version (8) ? It just came out.

What are you looking for; USB ? Ethernet ?

Send Acronis suppoirt an email. Give them more brand and model info
than you posted here.

I like TI, but I have to admit that that I've never been able to do a
usable backup on the USB burner I've got. I find disk-to-disk much
more practical so I've never reported it to Acronis.

You need to execute TI locally but store image file on remote network share.
Is that good enough?

Maybe i'm not explaining myself properly - sent this to Acronis

I'm trialing your "True Image' software.
I have a couple of machines on a home network.
On machine #1 I have a removable drive where I'm storing images. TI
works fine on machine 1.
I also want to image the drive on machine #2 ,on the removable drive
on #1, but TI (running on #1), can't see (but I can from Explorer) the
drive on #2. Is this a capability or not?

thanks in advance

As long as you share your removable drive, you should be able to access it
from any network PC, including a desktop running TI. You still trying it in
a wrong way.
If PC#1 has a removable drive shared as Share#1, you boot PC#2 using Acronis
TI CD. Then, navigating through TI menus on PC#2 you dump image of its hard
drive to a Share#1 running off PC#1.
PC#1 does not need to run TI at all. It has only to be connected to the same
network as PC#2.

Bu Peter - primary is backing up machine PC#1!!!! Therefore run off
of #1 ?!?!??? And that works.
And, as a requirement (any recommendations from propents of other s/w
packages), be able to backup other machines on the network. Oh, I
didnt tell you but there is really four machines!!

Where now?
Lets see if Acronis has any suggestions.

Acronis will not image a remote drive. It has to be running on the
machine whose drive you are backing up. The target image container
can be on a remote drive, but the source drive has to be local.

You're going to have to install copies of Acronis on all four
machines.

Sorry, I'm not sure I understand your explanation.
You can post your question in Acronis newsgroup at:
