    I tried to use the "Check Archive" feature to check an archive stored on DVD.
    I hilighted the archive file and clicked "Proceed." But then I received the error message:

    Failed to execute the task script. Error #5 - "Access is denied."

    Can anybody tell me why this happens and propose a solution?

    I have updated to the latest build, 3677.

    Thank You.

    Possibly you have another process that has control of your DVD.

    Try closing down your burning software if it automatically starts up, especially directCD and its equivalents.

    Make sure you check in task manager if any processes for these programs are still running. If they are kill them!

    See how you go then.

    Thanks Colin.
    No, I do not see any Burning software being started automatically or any processes pertaining to the DVD. Any other ideas would be appreciated.

    I would also check if ATI processes (schedhlp.exe and schedul2.exe) are running. If not, run them manually via Windows Task Manager (then File->New Task), the files are in [System Dirve]:\Program Files\Common Files\Acronis\Schedule2).

    Also clarify if the archive spans over several DVD discs or fits on one?

    Now lets figure out if the issue connected to CD/DVD drive

    - Try to mount the image via ATI (if it fits on one DVD)

    - Try do validate when booted from Acronis Bootable CD.

    - Copy to local drive and try to validate in Windows and from Bootable CD

    What are the results?
