    Over the past year I have backed up monthly , every 3rd one a full backup with 2 incremental one in between .
    Recently I had a problem at start up it would not go beyond the bios screen.
    My three True Image 8 Floppies Enabled me to view my Back ups on my external Hard drive. but every one I clicked on the message came up not an Archive file cannot proceed. (not word for word but that was the gist)

    Where Did I go wrong Please ?

    After you made the backup images, did you ever run the Check Image function to confirm that the images were good?

    Did you ever use the Explore function to see if the image could be mounted successfully and files restored from it?

    Am I correct in assuming that you don't have a CD-RW drive available which is why you are using the boot floppies instead of the Recovery CD?

    Do you have access to a second computer that is working?

    Hi jmk 94903 I Always ran a check after back up to see if all was OK. Yes I Do Have a CD-RW but Acronis takes up very little of a disc so more economical to use Floppies.No I do not have a second Computer. All indications and checks said the backups were good .
