    Hi all,

    I have found External-USB device such as USB-IDE/SATA,
    has serious bug.

    example:
    Internal IDE HDD copy 4GB files to USB-IDE HDD on Windows XP.
    no problem.

    After copy, I check both 4GB files get different MD5/SHA1 signature.
    and, I open CMD, type

    fc /b D:\aaa.iso H:\aaa.iso
    the fc command report randomize address with different byte every time I check.

    Then, I change USB-IDE HDD's jumper (from Master to Slave),
    and CMD fc /b again......
    WOW......total the same. (of course, MD5 and SHA1 are identical)

    I got some answer after examination,
    WRITE TO USB-IDE/SATA device are CORRECT DATA,
    BUT READ FROM USB-IDE/SATA device are WRONG DATA,
    IT WILL CAUSE ACRONIS RESTORE STAGE GET [CORRUPT FILE] REPORT,
    DUE TO USB-IDE/SATA chip bug (J.Micro chip)

    So, I think if someone has problem like,
    Backup -> OK,
    Validate Backup -> OK, (with internal device)
    move "backup file" to external device through USB-IDE/SATA -> Ok,
    restore failed and getting message "corrupt file",
    you need change your external HDD jumper to another setting.





    report over.

    Sure.

    If USB-HDD has correct data between host computer,
    True Image always RESTORE ok, without any problem.

    I think may user who have TI 11 Home face "corrupt file" problem,
    because USB-HDD has incompatible with transfer mode.
