Why can't I EXPLORE an image using Acronis True Image ver. 8?

    Every time I try to explore an image, I get the message, "cannot assign
    a drive letter to a partition from the image archive."

    I'm using XP Pro w/FAT 32 (SP2 with all the current updates)

    The images I'm trying to explore are not in a Secure Zone. They are on
    a couple of outboard drives.

    In the window to select the image to be explored there is a FAT 32 & a
    FAT 16 partition shown.

    I have tried assigning drive letters to each partition and it doesn't
    work.

    I have tried assigning a drive letter to only a single partition and it
    doesn't work.

    I have been able to do this in the past, but I always had a problem
    doing it. It was never as simple as the HELP section makes it seem.

    Also, does anyone know of a simpler program to back up an entire C:
    drive?

    One like the old Drive Image for FAT 16 drives?

    That program didn't have all the fancy frills, but it was so simple a
    5-year-old could do it, and it worked flawlessly every time. All these
    bells and whistles in these new backups like Acronis TI are just too
    complicated.

    Thank you.
