    Hi, first time poster here.

    I've tried to use ATI to make an image of my C:\ to an external HD (Maxtor). The first time that went all right, but from then on I get nothing but problems.
    Either, whilst creating an image the maxtor, the pocess stops abruptly. It seems like the Maxtor gets stuck.
    Or, sometimes the process goes all the way and ends with the message "image created succesfully". But when I try to check the image I always get the message "the image archive is corrupted"
    This happens no matter whether I run ATI in Windows environment or starting it from the bootable ATI-CD.

    I have a second internal harddisk (D:\). Burning images on D:\ and checking them goes without problems. I then copied one of those image to the maxtor and checked it, but again the image seems to be "corrupted".

    I've heard good comments about ATI and the software seems easy to use (even for a PC newbie like me), so I really would like to keep using it, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to work. Can you help me please ?

    PS : I already defragmented the Maxtor, but that didn't help either.
