    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.

    I don't have a answer to your question, but it sounds like your hitting up against some limit. Since its not the drive, it must be the router. So why don't you try to reduce the size of the image that your creating. This can easily be done in the wizard at the image archive splitting screen. Just select Fixed and enter 2000mb. See what happens.

    Great idea...and it worked! Must be something with the router. I'll have to do some experimenting.
