I truly cannot believe the state of denial evident in the last several posts. I also find it infuriating -- here as well as other forums -- when people post that THEY don't have the problem. At the risk of being too sarcastic, let me say, "Well, good for you." Whether intended or not, saying that YOU don't have a problem implies that those who DO have the problem must somehow be doing something wrong and that it is their fault. While there is plenty of "cockpit error" when we all deal with computers, and therefore many cases where the person posting is doing something wrong, you have to understand that when you have dozens of people -- not only in this thread, but in many other threads in this forum and also elsewhere on the Internet -- who DO have problems validating, then you have to, as I already said, be in some sort of existential state of denial not to understand that a problem really does exist. Finally, I really have to scratch my head over the logic (illogic?) of this statement: Huh? By that logic, then ALL posts from a year ago should have 17,373 views and 299 posts. Of course they don't. The reason this has twenty times the number of views of any other thread on page one of the forum, and probably one hundred times the number of views of an average thread is -- does this sound too far fetched? -- because lots of people are having the validation problem and are eager to find out how to work around it or solve it. I honestly don't see the point in denying this widespread problem, unless you work for Acronis and want to make potential customers think that there isn't a problem. For those wishing to research this further to see what else is being said about corrupt validation in Acronis Trueimage, you can click on this Google search and have a look around the Internet: Google Trueimage Corrupt Validation Search I am sure that not all of the 9,000+ hits relate exactly to this problem, but as of the moment that I posted this, half of the links on the first page of the Google search to point to posts in places outside this forum where people (not me) are reporting exactly this problem.
