I have found something that strikes me very strange. I'm using ATI 10.0 build 4871. I created a 'image' backup to my external usb drive. I then selectively restored 2 different directories to another location so I could compare them with the original locations. So far, so good, they compared exactly. BUT when I went to restore these same two directories after booting with the Boot Rescue CD I had just made, the files in the directores are DIFFERENT in that MOST of the files have something appended to them. Here is a picture of what has been added (Note: Every file that is dfferent has this same information appended to it ... even my EXE files - yet they seem to run ok). http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v81/Ralph_Cal/BugReports/acronis_CD_Restore.jpg Anyone have an idea WHY the files would be different using the SAME backed up image? Again the only difference in the restore process was that in 1 case I restore via the Windows GUI for ATI and the other method was via the Boot Rescue CD.
