Hi all: Hoping for further suggestion on this one: Background: Running XP Pro and Acronis True Image 9 I like the schedule option, though it asks you input your XP User ID and password. So, my hard disk failed and I went to complete restore, to find my back up is corrupted. So, I use the bootable version and browse through the folders of my backup file to see that it appears My Documents are intact, so I figure to fresh install XP and restore selected files from My Documents. Here's the problem: Because I used the schedule back up feature with my XP login/password, I don't have access to the My Documents folder. So questions to the forum: Can I 1. repair a backup file, possibly through mounting the image? 2. fool XP to allow me access to this folder (I am the administrator running XP). Thanks all for any suggestions. Steve.
