Following a verification of the image, Acronis TI Home 10 tells me that the image is corrupt. No matter how many times I create the image the result is the same. I began creating images following a clean install of WXP Pro CW SP2. I made about 6 images all were OK and I tested each one as I made them by restoring to the last image created. Each of these 6 images were a complete image of my C drive that contained my operating system and all my core application and utilities. It also contained all updated drivers etc. The trouble started when I began to install the first on my favourite games. I installed a couple of games and then attempted to test the image by restoring the C drive. Each time the verification utility in True Image reported the image was corrupted after only a couple of minutes. The games were installed a different drive. Each image is only made when the drive is fully defragged and clean. Right now I cannot make an image that is not corrupted. Routine error message E 00070020 Any advise will be appreciated.
