    Acronis Backup and UEFI

    Just built a new system w/a UEFI Bios. When I go to backup my C: drive (SSD) there is a Recovery Partition (NTFS), an Unamed partiton (FAT32), and the Local Disk C: (NTFS). I went ahead and backed up all three the first time, but in future should I just back up the Local Disk? Also, when I boot into Acronis Recovery to restore my C: drive, should I also check "MBR & Track 0" for recovery? Thanks.

    UEFI creates 3 partitions (4 or 5 in some situations). The UEFI System partition, the Microsoft System Recovery Partition (MSR), and the standard user partition. If you're restoring the whole drive, you need all three. If you're just going to restore you user files, you only need the main drive.
