    Basically I ran into a bunch of problems with the Paragon Backup & recovery 2010 Free advanced and I can't restore the image a backed up. The boot disc was incompatible with my motherboard and the back image is unrecognizable to Paragon software.....

    Here is an image of the back file(s):

    Here is an image of what Paragon is saying about the image now:

    Is this backup image actually corrupt or is this software just broken? Are there alternative applications out there to recover the data from this backup image?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!!!! :D

    Edit:

    Please go directly to the photobucket page because those served images have very low resolution.

    I've read quite a bit and tons of other people had problems with the boot disc.... It's apparently related to the motherboard (BIOS), but every boot option you select just hangs or resets. This is a moot point though.....

    I just need to get the data from this image if possible. How can I really tell if this is corrupt? The thing is, is that the Paragon software doesn't even scan the image, it just says the image is corrupt as soon as I SELECT the folder......?!?!?!?! o_O

    Did you try to select the only shown file inside backup folder? Is it recognized correctly as an archive?

    Is is one partition backup?
