I use a USR 8200 router that has two USB 2.0 ports to plug in an external harddrive. I have a Buffalo Technologies external drive (Western Digital) plugged into mine. Whenever I create an image over the network it fails at about 80% complete with the poor media error. It always fails at the same place. I can create an image successfully when the drive is plugged into my PC directly. The image is about 4.5GB. I was also able to create an incremental image of about 2GB over the network. It just fails when I try to create a full image over the network. I already have a ticket open with Acronis but I wanted to see if anyone else has encountered this problem with this setup. The last thing Acronis said to me was that they are using SMB but I don't know how that is related to my problems. Thanks.
