I used to do a lot of disk cloning operations with Acronis TI Home 2010, but today when I tried (about 3 times) to clone the main OS hard disk to another one, I got the following error:
“Failed to restart the computer…
Windows cannot be restarted. You probably don’t have enough privileges to perform the operation“
I had this problem when using Windows XP Pro and Acronis True Image Home 2010.
I searched the web for this problem, only found this link:
After applying the solution mentioned there to change registry settings, the problem still occurred and I decided to search more about this problem in computer settings.
1. I first looked in the Windows Event Viewer for software, security or system events on the computer, but found nothing there.
Note*: To whom Open Event Viewer Click on Windows XP Startpress Control Panelpress Administrative toolsand then double-click Event viewer.
2. Then I look in windows services and found this Acronis Scheduler service and Acronis True Image monitor had already begun.
Note*: To whom open the services Click on Windows XP Startpress Control Panelpress Administrative toolsand then double-click Services.
3. Then I tried Stop and Start restarted the above services and restarted the clone operation but the problem was still there.
Note*: In Windows XP, right-click the service you want to manage, and then click Start, Stop, Pause, Resume; restartor Restart.
4. My next step was to look at the applications that can be launched at Windows startup CCleaner*
There I somehow realized that “Acronis Scheduler2 service” and “True Image monitor.exe” Start with Windows is disabled.
I enabled these two programs and then restarted the system.
Note*: To view startup programs using CCleaner, open CCleaner and on the left side: Tools after that Start up.
5.And voila! The problem went away and the cloning process started normally and I was able to restart the computer without any errors.
