Hi. I have a freshly installed Vista Home Edition (fully updated). My PC has 2 disks: a Maxtor 500Gb (system disk) and a Samsung 1Tb (backups). Both brand new. I just bought Acronis True Image Home 2009 and I've been trying to get a full backup for hours with no success. Everytime it ends the backup and starts to validate it tells me the file is corrupt. I tried a lot of different configurations like backing up the 1st disk to the 2nd disk directly or activating the Secure Zone on a 200GB partition in the 2nd disk and doing the backup there. Everytime the result is the same: when it comes to validation it says the file is corrupt. Please help. I just reinstalled my Vista because of a KSOD problem and I lost data because I had no backup. Then I noticed Vista Home Edition doesn't have a full pc backup application... so I bought ATI and now I can't get it to work. This is really upsetting and I don't know what else to do. Thank you.
