THis is a follow up to my previous post. Let me see if I can explain it more clearly and I hope someone from the Acronis Team can respond. I dowloaded the latest build (8053) from TI 11. I made a back up of my hard drive. I validated the backup and everything was fine. To be sure, I mounted the image and everything worked perfectly. I then made a TI 11 rescue boot disk and inserted it into my computer. I restarted and had it boot from the CD/DVD drive. I went to validate the same exact image of my hard drive and about 1/2 way through the process, I get an error box saying that the file was corrupted!!! The funny thing is that TI 11 on my computer said this same exact image was validated and fine! I tried to validate previous build of TI 11 and I got the same corrupted file message. I am not using Linus. I am using a dell 9300 Inspiron computer laptop. The image file of my hard drive is stored on an external 500 Gig drive. THe strange thing is that the rescue boot disk that I created from the previuos build of TI 11 (8027), will validate images made from that build (but not build 8053). So, Acronis team, there is a problem with build 8053's way in whichit will not validate images created by it same build number! Please look into this. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
