    Can you set a option to auto verify a image after it has been created? And can you boot from the cd and select image a drive and auto verify the image after it has been created and just walk away? Come back and you know if the process was a success or not? I know Norton 9 has the auto verify option but don't think you can boot from the cd and do create a image.
    Thanks

    Hi Hypermole,

    I think auto verify images, is the main feature that is missing to this exceptional program.
    I used to work with Drive Image that has this feature, even after Symantec acquired Powerquest.
    About your question, the only way to verify the created image, is opening TI and select to verify the image.
    I really would like to know when Acronis will implement this feature. o_O

    Best Regards,

    DonKid.

    That would be too simple, wouldn't it? :D

    See that a new version is out today of true image. Does it give you the option to auto verify the image after it's created yet?

    Thanks

    Hi, Hypermole

    The Simple answer is the same as the old long answer, it is still NO.

    So far, the vote seems to lean to: no, not yet :)

    This is from the TI9 users guide.
    Is this an "auto-verify" after the image is made?

    4.3.7 Additional settings
    1. Check archive
    The default setting – disabled.
    You can choose to check the backup data integrity. Verification will be performed immediately after the archive is created.

    I have downloaded TI9 and am using it.

    Apart from a few niggles introduced with the new features there appears to be a 'verify image' option.

    It can be set when you create a new task under "Backup creation options" in the section "Additional settings". Just tick the box "Check archive when backup creation complete".

    This appears to be performed in the log - but I'm not totally convinced it is actually happening (appears not to take enough timeo_O).

    Note you can also set this as an option for all new backup jobs in the main windows under Tools>Options.

    Thanks for the information Merlin & Carol.

    Given Acronis' comments, it seems they don't know their own product.

    Unfortunately this is the only feature that is of any benefit to me in TI9, so I'm not going to be upgrading.

    For me, not having tell it to verify the images and wasting another hour is worth the $30.
