I get this error message everyday when doing an incremental backup. Is there a way to set Acronis to ignore this sector automatically? Is there a way I can tell which program is causing thhis error message? "Cannot create the image of the logical drive C: because it is currently in use by running applications or the logical drive contains bad sectors." This drive a barely a week old, so I can't imagine is the drive. Perhaps there is a a kill all apps script I can use?
