Lastnight I had my OS crash on me which was annoying, but I thought ok I should be back up and running again by just Restoring a saved Image file. So I booted Acronis off the CD and selected my Image to restore, started the restore procedure and then after about 10minutes I had a Message box pop up saying that the Image is Corrupt!!! So I thought I would try a previous back up to restore and that had the same problem,. So I tried all of my 5 backups and they all were corrupt!!! =( I dont know why or how all of them are corrupt as I had created them all from booting up of the CD and verified them after they were created and they were all OK. Now I have had to bite the bullet and go for a full reinstall of the OS and will have to re load all my programs etc.. =( gutted. btw. the backups were saved to an external USB hard drive. Anyone got any ideas? or is there a way to restore a corrupt image?
