So my HD died and I have an Acronis backup. Im buying a new hd for my comp but its a different company than what I originally had, so I was wondering if that will mess up the restore or something. I restored the files instead of an entire backup of my entire hd, so when I restore the files will it just restore the files and documents and not other things.

Ouch!

No, it doesn't matter what manufacture hard drive you use. Acronis will just reimage it to whatever backup you have.

I restored the files instead of an entire backup of my entire hd, so when I restore the files will it just restore the files and documents and not other things.

I'm not quite sure I know what you mean by this. Did you create a backup of your entire C drive, or only portions of it? If you backed up the entire C drive, then the restore will bring back everything that was on C... Windows, your programs, system settings, and files.

Yea it sucks that my HD died. I just restored specific documents and files. I may have done the entire C: drive but I dont know. But since the HD doesnt matter it doesnt really matter anymore. As long as I can get the majority of my stuff back. Mainly my music. Thanks.
