I've run into a bit of a HUGE problem in that it appears that my Acronis Secure Zone is corrupt! This AM I had my primary HDD die on me, but since I had been making religious nightly backups to a secondary HDD that was a 100% "Acronis Secure Zone" I wasn't in the least bit worried about losing the drive. Furthermore, after every single nightly backup, I had on verification and every AM I'd verify that the backup verification completed successfully. Apparently I had a LOT to worry about as after I installed a new primary HDD and attempted to restore my data from my "Acronis Secure Zone", True Image 9.0 Home, build 3567 kept telling me that "E0004000D: The file is corrupted". I first ran into this when just booting from the Recovery CD, but I just wrote this off as being a problem w/ the Recovery CD. (After all, the recovery CD didn't work with my Microsoft USB Wireless mouse, so hey... just another bug, right? Yes, even tried turning off acpi and apic as well as usbmouse to no avail. But that's another less important issue.) Sooo... I re-installed a base XP Pro OS to my primary drive and installed the full version of True Image 9.0 Home, build 3567 and tried the recovery from there. No luck. I ran into the exact same problems there. I have close to 30 nights of backups in my "Acronis Secure Zone" -- it lists every single one of them -- I just can't restore from ANY of them. My backup strategy was that every Monday night a full backup was created and every T - Su an incremental was created. I figured that was "safest" as I'd surely have enough complete backups to fall back on even if the latest and greatest backup didn't work out. So... here I am just sitting at a screen showing all my backups in the "Acronis Secure Zone" not able to restore a single one of them. Close to 100GB of data that I desperately need back that I can't restore a single byte from. This sucks. Big time. I've already sent in a formal Technical Support request but I figured I'd post this in hopes that someone out there might have some suggestions on what to do from here. As always, any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks! -Jeff About the Drive 1: This is an internal drive connected as a slave to my primary on IDE channel 1. It's been formatted as 100% Acronis Secure Zone. I've also run a complete drive fitness test on this drive to rule out any problems with it - it checks out 100% fine. Furthermore, I've tried taking this drive and putting it in an external USB/Firewire 400 enclosure and both restoring from it and running diagnostics on it. Same results. Running a "Validate Backup Archive" fails stating that the image is corrupt. Ugh.
