Reboot the machine before the operation (if required) or after the operation is completed.
Use this option when performing the following operations that require a reboot: recovering locked files, creating/deleting Acronis Secure Zone on a system disk, cloning a system disk. The machine will be rebooted automatically. To postpone the operation until a user reboots the system manually, add the /later option. With this option, the operation will be performed after the user initiates a reboot.
The /reboot option can be used with operations that do not necessarily require a reboot. Examples of such operations are: recovery under bootable media, recovering files that are not locked by the operating system, archives validation, and most types of backup. In those cases a reboot will be performed after the operation is completed. The /later option is not necessary.
The following table summarizes the software behavior with and without the /reboot and /later options.
