Creating Acronis Bootable Media in Acronis True Image 2018

You can create a rescue bootable media – a standalone version of Acronis True Image that you can use to boot a crashed machine or a machine without any operating system and restore an image of your system.

Follow these instructions to create a bootable media:

  • Open Acronis True Image with the icon on your desktop or search through your programs to find it

  • Click on Tools and then select Rescue Media Builder

  • Select Simple

  • You will then be prompted to Choose media destination with the list been generated by what is connected to your computer.  I would advise to use the DVD RW Drive to create recovery media with a CD or DVD, as majority of computers with boot from these without too much drama.  Otherwise, use a USB Stick if your device supports booting from one.

  • On the Summary screen, click Proceed to create the backup media

  • Once complete, you should see the message that your Rescue media has been created successfully.
