I'm a new user of TI 8.0 (build 786). I am using Windows 2000 SP4 with all patches and NTFS file system. I created an image archive and got message "the image was successfully created". I used Check Image Wizard and got message "The image archive was successfully verified". I used Restore Image Wizard and specified that I wanted to verify the archive before the restore. I selected the partition to restore and while it was 'Analysing Partition C:' I got the error: "The selected partition contains the following error: File record corrupted. Please note that you cannot change the file system and size of this partition. It is recommended that you check these partitions after restoration with your operating system disk tools." My investigations: chkdsk /f - no errors chkdsk /r - reports "The volume is clean" Used Windows 2000 Recovery Console commands fixboot and fixmbr. Used Start/Run sfc /scannow - to verify Windows 2000 protected files. I've moved all user data files from the partition to a spare disk, emptied recycle bin, deleted temporary files, uninstalled various non-essential programs and defragmented in an attempt to make the corrupt file record error disappear. Interestingly, Powerquest PartitionMagic 8.01 reports: "Error 1527 Bad update sequence number". Assuming Microsoft chkdsk is correct then both TrueImage and PartitionMagic are not understanding some part of the NTFS structure. Alternatively, there is a deficiency in chkdsk and both TI and PM are smarter (but not smart enough to give some useful error message which pinpoints the problem). Either way I'd like to find out what is going on. I know I could delete the partition and recreate a Windows 2000 partition but I'd like to find the cause of the problem so that Microsoft/Acronis/PowerQuest(Symantec) might fix the bug. By the way, I'm quite happily using the partition on a daily basis without any other problems. Anyone have any ideas before I start reporting the problem to MS/TI/PM Support?
