The history... I have a lot of MP3 files that I decieded to backup as it took a long time to encode my CD collection. It ended up being a 76gig image. I backed the MP3s up using file backup. I then formatted my system drive. Upon trying to restore my MP3 file archive I get the following error Failed to restore file or folder "track 1.mp3 Failed to resotre file or folder. (0x4001A) Path = "F:\my music\2 many DJs\PG5G6MTI.TMP Hints = 1 Access is Denied. (0xFFF0) code = FFFFFFFF80070005: Rety/Ignore/Cancel ------ Now I know this has to do with file permissions. Acronis is telling me when it has restored the temp file it is denied access to rename it. If I look at the permissions on the temp file I can see that I have no access to it. My problem is how do I take permissions of files that havnt been restored yet? If i try this from the acronis boot CD it says the image is not valid. Yet it read and tests fine once booted into XP. I have tried permissions on the actuial image file...no good. I have booted into safe mode....no good it cant start the resotre schedule service or something. Is there another acronis product which can overcome this problem? What about using something like windows 95 which has no type of permissions if I remember rightly?? PLEASE ANY1 HELP ME!!!! I cant lose all my MUSIC !!!
