Hello, I have been using Acronis True Image 8.0 (latest build, 937) for about 9 months now, and it has worked flawlessly when restoring images of my OS partition. I have always stored the images of my OS partition on a separate internal physical drive and didn't use any type of file splitting. However, a few days ago I decided that I wanted to dual boot Windows and Linux, so I had to change the partition structure of the hard drive I use for data storage. To do this, I had to delete my primary data storage partition and replace it with several logical partitions within an extended partition. I backed up all data on this partition to DVD, and I also created an image of this partition for good measure. I used the file splitting option for DVD media, and these files were written to another partition on the same hard drive (this partition was not touched by any partitioning operations). When I finished creating the new logical partitions, I decided to restore the image using the .tib files that were recently created. Roughly 30% through the restoration process, I received the "Image is corrupt" message. This has significantly shaken my confidence in the TI software. I'm wondering if someone could offer some explanation as to why this might have happened. I have read through some of the threads regarding corrupt images, and invariably people will start to question hardware stability. Well, I take my hardware stability very seriously, and I can assure you that everything is fine in that department. Prime95 "blend" torture test can run for 24+ hours without errors, Memtest86+ runs without errors, SuperPi 32M runs to completion, all the 3DMark tests can loop infinitely, not a single BSOD since I've put this system together. Additionally, I have run Western Digital Diagnostics Extended Tests on both my 74GB Raptor and my WD320KS, and all is fine. The only things that were different during this backup/restore process compared to previous successful operations are the following: - I split the backup archive into multiple files to fit on DVDs (though the files were still on the internal hard drive when I invoked the restore operation) - A "non-active" partition was imaged (previously I have only used TI to image my OS partition). As such, the restore process was invoked from within Windows rather than from the bootable CD. - The image was restored to a smaller partition than the one it was created from (though there was only about 40GB worth of data on the partition, and the resized partition was 140GB) Any suggestions you could provide would be appreciated.
