    When making a image based BU of one whole partition with AcronisTI home2010 I
    get message that the partition is locked . No other application is running
    and I have closed all possible background processes (in the rigth lower
    corner). The partition is still locked .
    Can anyone give me a hint how I can find out what process is locking a
    particular partition i Win XP SP3. I dont see it in the task manager
    Thanks for any help.

    Did you create a bootable CD disc and try it that way?

    Otherwise, you should ask at the Acronis True Image Home Forum -
