OK, I installed Acronis TrueImage 9 2,2777. I have a system with 2 NTFS drives. I ran the Windows disk tool on both drive and verify that there were no drive problems first. I started a backup from the c: drive to the d: drive using the recovery CD (I am nervous about windows running in the background). After running overnight, I got a message that "Backup completed with errors". There was nothing in the log. I am going to try this without the recovery CD. By the way, could Acronis offer user of True Image 9 True Image 8 as a workaround?
