    Hi there,

    When I am backing up one of my hard drives to a maxtor external usb HD True Image gets to about 90% then the pc hard resets and the backup fails.

    I have 3 hard drives in this pc, the two 40gig's backup fine, but the third drive, which is an 80gB, fails.

    I had this problem with version 8 of True Image and I was hoping that version 9 would fix it, but no luck.

    I am running windows 2000 with sp4.

    Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

    If the backups for the two 40 gigs are on the external, is there still room for the 80 gig backup?

    The external is a 200 gig....but just to make sure there wasn't something else going on I re-formatted the external drive and then tried to backup the 80 gig drive, and it still rebooted.

    Today I tried just dragging all the folders from the 80gig to the external drive and it worked fine, so this is the workaround I'm using until I resolve this True Image issue.
