I use Acronis True Image Home version 9.0 (build 3633) 1. Click on Tools/Default backup options/Additional Settings, where "Validate backup archive upon its creation completion" is marked. That's OK, because I prefer to validate EACH backup, even when it takes more time. 2. Click on Tools/Default restoration options/ Additional settings, where "Validate backup archive before restoration" is also marked. Since ALL my backups have been validated, why do I have to re-validate my backup before restoration ? Any very good reason for this double validation ?
