    I have a drive setup as a hotspare which shows in Computer Management as "unreadable", when I start Acronis, it gives an error message: "Failed to read from the sector 0 of the hard disk 2" If I remove the drive as a hot-spare it works fine, but I would like to have the hot-spare.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
