I am new to Acrois TI just bought the program 3 days ago. I have the latest version and a current date which is Build # 611. I'm running WinXP with 1ghz of Ram. I made an entire backup of my C:\ drive. I selected a fixed size of 650mb and saved it to a specified folder. I then copied these files to a CDR. I went back to explore the images and I was able to do that successfully. I also checked the image for errors and there were none. However when trying restore the image from the CDR's (not to the drive that orginally containded the images but to a second hard drive), I was able to boot to Acronis using the bootable disk I created during installation. I then proceeded following the directions to restore the image and indicating my second hard drive as the place to restore the image too. I keep getting the following message: "Failed to read from the image archive file. Possible reasons may be either the archive file is corrupted, the media contained bad sectors, or the media was ejected." I have bought several brands of disk and got the same results. Since I have never tried this before, I wanted to be sure it worked.
