Wizards and notification area icons

When you use the available Acronis True Image Home 2011 tools and utilities, the program will in many cases employ wizards to guide you through the operations.

Wizards have a sidebar listing all the steps (both required and optional) needed for completing the operation. For example, see the Manage Acronis Secure Zone wizard screen shot below.

The completed steps are marked with green checkmarks. The green arrow shows the current step. After you complete all the required steps and come to the Finish step, the program displays the Summary screen. Check the summary of the operation to be performed and then click Proceed to start the operation.

Taskbar notification area icons

During most of the operations, special indicator icons appear in the Windows taskbar notification area (the right portion of the status bar with the clock). If you mouse over the icon, you will see a tool tip indicating the operation’s progress or state. Right-clicking on the icon opens a shortcut menu where you can change the operation’s status or cancel the operation if necessary. This icon doesn’t depend on the main program window being open. It is present for background execution of scheduled backups as well.
