    I created a backup of my media partition a couple of days ago using Acronis True Image Home 11. Yesterday, one of the drives in my RAID0 array died, so I tried to restore from the backup true image created. When I try to open the file in explorer, I get an error:
    I've tried mounting the disk but I always get an error about the file being corrupted. This image is 316Gb, and I really need the data contained in it. I had family photos and everything I've ever created on there.

    Is there any way I can salvage the backup? Even if I can't restore everything, there must be a way I can restore at least part of it?

    I'm using an NLite version of XP Pro (not that it really makes a difference), so I don't have MSInfo32 to dump my system info, but there's a dump from a similar tool available at http://mi6.nu/pegasus.html

    Please help me with this, the data means a lot to me.

    Did you validate the image after you created the backup?

    Have you tried booting to the TI CD and trying to validate or restore the image?

    Do you have a BartPE/VistaPE TI CD that you could boot and try to mount the image?

    Hello Echilon,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please be aware that the installed version of Acronis True Image relies on certain Windows components, so it might not function properly on a cut variant of Windows, depending on what was removed. Please try restoring the image using Acronis Bootable Rescue Media instead. Please also clarify, have you validated the image after creating it?

    Thank you.
