    Hello Another Dave,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Workstation Disk Backup Software.

    The problem with corrupted image files is usually a hardware problem and this problem should be analyzed separately in every certain case. Have you tried to explore the images that are reported as corrupted? Sometimes it is possible to explore corrupted image and recover the main part of the data.

    Also please verify your image by means "Check Image" tools under Windows and under Linux (when boot from bootable CD). If the image is ok, when you verify it under Linux, you can try to restore it. Please let us know the result.

    Thank you.

    The image is OK, when i can restore it without problems using the "windows recovery CD"...
    But using the "Linux recovery CD" is say's images corrupted.

    Anyway's there is a versio difference.
    Image created from a running system with version 8 build 1124.

    Receovery with Windows bootIMAGE version8 buld 1124 no problems
    Recovery with LINUX bootIMAGE version8 build 799 says image corrupted

    Looks like version incopatibilitie....
    BTW is it at all possible to resotre an image with was created using an windows version and restore it using a Linux version ?
