    I'm getting this message when I try to clone a drive to another.

    I have no idea why its doing this.

    I'm cloning one IDE drive to another. The old drive is on the 2ndary IDE of my motherboard and the new drive is on an PCI IDE card.

    True Image 9.0 sees all drives. The new drive is not formatted. Could that be a problem?

    I had the same problem as you, but after reading posts here I started TR9 with the rescue disk, and then was able to successfully clone my disks.
    Hope this works for you

    Hello bbowen,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please make sure that you use the latest update (2323) of Acronis True Image 9.0 which is available in the Product Updates section of our web-site.

    Please check each partition of your hard drives by Windows utility:

    - For Windows 9x please use Windows menu Start\Run
    then enter the command "scandskw" and test all drives;

    - For Windows XP please use Windows menu Start\Run, then enter the command
    "chkdsk c: /r" "chkdsk d: /r" for every partition of your hard drives.

    Please note that you will need to reboot your computer in order to scan the system partition.

    If that does not help then please download the latest version of Acronis drivers, install it with disabled logging and see if the problem still persists.

    If the problem still persists then enable logging by running the Acronis drivers installation package once again, reproduce the problem and collect the c:\snapapi.log file.

    Please also try to use Acronis True Image bootable rescue media to clone your hard drive to another one.

    If that does not help, please create Acronis Report and Windows System Information as it is described in Acronis Help Post.

    Please create an account, then log in and submit a request for technical support. Attach all the collected files and information to your request along with the step-by-step description of the actions taken before the problem appears and the link to this thread. We will investigate the problem and try to provide you with the solution.

    Thank you.
