    thanks Kirill Omelchenko


    i'm talking about the bootcd

    i'm asking if is secure at 100% because to me it takes only few seconds to check an archive of 2 gigao_O
    i'm asking if ti9 check the whole archive or only the first & last data of the file

    Hello mantra,

    Please be aware that as Kirill has already pointed out, we do not expect any problems restoring an image archive that verifies successfully both from under Windows and when using Bootable Rescue CD. I'm afraid that in order be completely sure there is no other way than to perform the actual restore.

    Could you please provide us with the following information?

    - How much time does it take exactly to verify the image when the latest build (2337) of Acronis True Image 9.0 is running from under Windows?

    - How much time does it take exactly to verify the image when computer is booted from Bootable Rescue CD created using the latest build (2337) of Acronis True Image 9.0?

    - Where do you store this image?

    - Do you receive any error,warning or informational messages? What exact messages? When exactly do you receive them?

    The embedded Check Archive tool always checks the entire image archive, even if it consists of several volumes (i.e. image archive is splitted into several parts or consists of the initial full image plus a number of incremental or differential images).

    Thank you.

    Hello mantra,

    As far as I understand, you are trying to check the 1.7Gb image archive and it takes 3 minutes to successfully complete the operation. This time is normal and you can be confident that you will not encounter any problems while restoring this image.

    Thank you.

    thanks for the answer Kirill Omelchenko

    i think i'm not very clear

    maybe you know what is a Reallocated Sector Count , you know when an hardisk found a rotten sector , it substitutes with a new , but the data in the old sector is lost!

    does the check feature give me the secure(100%) that the image is not corrupted?

    Hello mantra,

    From this point, yes it does, because if some of the sectors this particular image archive resides on are replaced with another ones then the verification of this image archive will fail because of the differences in checksums that are being calculated during the image verificatoin procedure.

    Thank you.
