I made 4 images of a 3-yr-old Dell system several weeks ago, all using a bootable v8 bld 937 CD and written to an external USB drive. Tonight I've discovered that the same bootable CD says all 4 are corrupted images. I downloaded the latest build of v9 and checked the 4 files. All generate a corrupted file error. The log entries are the same for each even though the error appears at vastly different times in the checking process. I checked another image, made on a different PC to the same USB drive, and it checks out fine. So... I guess the problem was between the old Dell and the USB drive. Is there a "relaxed" recovery mode where ATI will accept 1 or 2 errors rather than just abort and leave the user stranded? While I love the fact that ATI will seemingly work with far more USB and other types of drives than Ghost, it's disconcerting to discover that "working" and "yielding a useable image" are two different things, and the latter is totally unpredictable.
