I was liking true image 7.0 a_lot, and installed build 611 which seemed to work fine, at one point I installed acronis image to my w2k c\ and that worked fine, and then problems started. acronis bkup is to 2d physical 120 gb hdd (maxtor) with about 80 gb used for acronis secure zone and the balance NTFS misc bkup area. I made a bkup ok and then came tried again about 11 hours later and I got a message that Error (redX) failed to read from sector 70,613,803 of hard disk 2, and when I ignore I get another sector no. and when I "ignore all" true image just seems to spin do nothing. I cannot change the secure zone, I cannot delete the secure zone, so I'm in limbo with true image, basically not functioning. so then I figured since it is somehow locked_up, I'll uninstall it, and I can reformat hdd2, reinstall acronis and start from scratch. well uninstalling acronis did not remove the F11 acronis boot manager, and reformatting hdd2 only reformatted the NTFS area and not the secure zone. if I physically remove hdd2 from box, (hdd2 is on a removeable caddy (worked well with Ghost)) since I installed acronis w2k will not boot if hdd2 is not in the box. so then I reinstalled true image and I'm back to square1, with the failed to read from sector 70,613,803 of hard disk 2 series of errors and acronis just spinning and I cannot access any features. seems that I cannot make it run, I cannot FULLY uninstall it, I cannot wipe hdd2 and I must have hdd2 in the box. I tend to doubt that hdd2 really has bad sectors, I think that something got corrupted with true image in the secure zone, and the app will not run correctly and it seems I cannot undo it. I sent a message to acronis support 92 hours ago and have not rec'd any reply. I'm become less and less enthralled with acronis. as a general concept I would expect that uninstalling an app would FULLY uninstall it, including its F11 boot manager and its secure zone. basically acronis seems to have tied my box up in a knot that seems not so easily untied. any ideas, right now, I'd like to FULLY remove it, along with secure zone on hdd2, wipe and format hdd2 and reinstall true image and start over. how do I get there from here?
