    Dear Acronis Support,

    It´s me again. I´ve written to Acronis Support Germany (because I am in Germany), but haven´t got any answer/solution --> Poor Support by the way..
    So Can you please help me?

    I try to image the System Partition of a Compaq DL380 Server with Acronis True Image Server 7.0 (Build 634).
    The Operating System is Windows 2000 SP4.

    If I try to do an image (scheduled or manually - doesn´t matter) I get the same failure every time:

    Image of Drive C: can´t be created, because either it´s used by another program or drive contains faulty sectors. Close all programs that use drive c:
    and execute a drive checkup. (It´s translated from German)

    If´ve -checked the drive with chkdsk - no errors.
    -Uninstalled every additional Application (even Virus scanner!)
    -Stopped all non-vital processes
    -tried Acronis True Image Server 8.0 (latest build)
    but the error persists.

    It only works if i boot from CD - but that´s not my intention.
    I want scheduled imaging!

    Can you give any advice?

    boot into recovery console (of the CD) and run:
    CHKDSK C: /R
    to repair bad sectors on your drive in question
