    I Am using version 9.0
    3 questions:

    1.After making the image ( now called 'backup'I guess?):
    is the image after creating also automaticly checked on possible errors/corrupting files ( Like it can be done manually at tools/check archive)
    I my opinion is this very important and I like to know if I have to do this manually everytime after creating, or maybe then I do this in fact twice?

    2.After manually checking the archive I get message : 'The operation was succesfully completed'. I suppose this means that there are no errors, but because I noticed this is a default message for more situations , it is not clear enough to me?

    3. I noticed that when I made a image ('backup') and after that using 'recovery', the original date and time of all files and folders are all overwritten with the current date and time (??!) This is with photo's and video's not nice.
    Can this be avoid or is this a bug?

    Hello basics,

    Just click on Tools > Options > Default backup options > and then tick the box titled Validate backup archive upon its creation completion.

    Yes, that's what the message is supposed to indicate.

    Click on Tools > Options > Default restoration options > and ensure the box titled Set current date and time for restored files is not ticked.

    Regards

    Thanks! Found it. But I guess you got a other version, because the location in mine(9.0) is in tjhe last step at 'additional settings'/'Check archive'


    ? I don't have 'restoration options'

    That's a very old "buggy" build of TI 9. You may want to consider updating to at least build 3,677.

    Oops! My mistake. I should have included the "Additional settings" sub-menu in both of the examples above. :oops:

    As MudCrab said, you should really update to the latest build of TI 9.0. Once you've updated, don't forget to create a new bootable rescue CD.

    Thank you
    Now I use version 10.0, build 4.871

    Setting: Tools > Options > Default restoration options > the box 'current date and time for restored files' is not ticked.

    Tested now again, in Windows:
    - Make archive
    - Recovered this

    I now notice again the date/time of all folders is the current, the time of recovering and NOT the original (?!)

    How can this be?

    Hello again basics,

    Just so that we can be sure. You're not expecting to restore an image of a disk/partition that had already had it's date/time changed due to your previous restore to now revert to the "original" date/time just because you unchecked the tickbox are you?

    Regards

    I understand your question
    But no: after disabling the option I make a new archive
    And restore that archive, and noticed all the folders got the time of recovering .

    O.k. thanks for the clarification but now I'm stumped. o_O

    Might be worth completely uninstalling TI 10 Build 4871 then log into your account at acronis.com and download/install the lastest update to TI 10 (Build 4942). After uninstalling TI, you will need your serial numbers for both TI 9 and TI 10 during the reinstall. Also, don't forget to create a new Acronis bootable rescue CD once Build 4942 has been successfully installed.

    Regards

    Hello basics,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please notice that it's normal behavior. When a backup is restored, folders are created first and then filled with files. This changes the "modified" date, and since folders only have "created" date parameter, they assume a new one. Restored files will still have the original "created" date.

    If you have any further questions concerning Acronis software, please feel free to submit a request for technical support or post any of them on this forum. We will certainly try to help you in resolving any issues.

    Thank you.

    aah
    Yes, now I see indeed..
    The option is 'Set current date and time for restored files'
    and not folders.... ;)

    My request for a next version is a option
    'Set current date and time for restored files and folders'
    ( I know this must can be done, because there are windows tools who can do this.

    Certainly can be done since, with simple little file attribute routines once can change any of the dates or times assigned to any file table entry (directory or file) -- for example,
    http://webplaza.pt.lu/rpetges/download/download.html

    So building such a routine into ATI is certainly possible. Otoh, if they go mucking about with the dates and times. . . well, let's hope it's a diff team of programmers than the ones that brought 11.8027. Enough said.

    Yes indeed. I (and I assume others) had totally missed the fact that the symptoms had changed between your Post #1:
    and your Post #6:
    Anyway, if nothing else, you have found the Tools > Options settings and have successfully updated to the latest build of TI 10. ;) :D
