    Hi, under Win XP pro I can create backups with Acronis 9 True Image but not restore them. I have a home built box, and 2 internal IDE hard drives, but I can't use the boot disk to restore an image from the 2nd HD to the 1st. I get the error 'This is not an Acronis backup file or it is corrupted". Tried several times, creating and restoring new TIB files as well.
    Do I have to get another imaging backup system, or return to GHOST?
    Thank you,
    chuck 2.0

    What build of TI 9 are you using?

    Are both Windows and the TI boot CD using the same build of TI 9?

    Assuming you have tried the last build of TI 9, Build 3854, and the Recovery CD created from this build, and that you have run CHKDSK /R on both hard drives, here's one more thing to try.

    Split your backups when you make them into 700MB pieces. Then test the restore. If it works, try splitting into larger pieces for convenience.

    Hello chuck418,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    We are sorry for delayed response.

    Please make sure you use the latest build (3854) of Acronis True Image 9.0 Home. To get access to updates you should first register your software. Please don't forget to recreate Acronis Bootable Rescue Media after updating.

    Please also try validating the archives both from Windows and using Acronis Bootable Rescue Media, and see if they validate successfully.

    Thank you.

    Do the backups validate with ATI running from Windows instead of the Boot CD? If so, then consider making a BArtPE or VistaPE disk instead of an ATI BootCD.
