    I'm using True Image 8.0 (build 879) on Linux with a 2.6.10 kernel.

    Every time I try to do a live backup of a currently running partition I get:

    "Cannot create the image of the logical drive sda1 because it is currently in use by running applications or the logical drive contains bad sectors."

    I know that there are no bad sectores on the drive since this is on a RAID5 array with constant monitoring. And there are, of course, running applications on the disk (including trueimage), but I had understood that trueimage would work regardless of whether the parition was in use. Is this not the case or is there something else I should be checking?

    I have tried re-installing a few times, and one thing that I have noticed is that the kernel modules do not appear to be getting re-built. When I first did the install, I had to let the installer build the modules for my current kernel. Every time I have tried installing since then, it has not prompted me to create the modules, everything has just proceeded automatically. The reason this concerns me is because I have re-compiled my kernel since I did the initial install of Acronis so it is possible that the kernel modules might not be working correctly.
