    Hi,

    I need some files from a V9 backup which was not correct finished.

    There exists some files:
    file.pbf
    file.001 1.9GB
    file.002 1.9GB
    file.003 1.9GB
    file.004 1.9GB
    file.005 1.9GB
    file.006 1.9GB
    file.007 1.9GB
    file.008 1.9GB
    file.009 1.9GB
    file.00a 0.97GB

    Checking the archive returns error 0x200ba

    Trying to restore the archive ends with file I/O error 0x1001b

    Do I have any chance to access the files in the above listed archives?

    Thank you very much for all help!!

    Unfortunately we can't access a corrupted archive. It's worth a try to use the File Transfer Wizard, double click the .PBF file and see if it "digs" into the archive.

    0x200BA tells me that creation of the archive was aborted during the backup, rendering it useless.

    Is there a reason we can't go back and run a complete backup, or is it too late?

    Hi Tommy,

    thank you for your quick answer.

    No, after doubleclick and waiting a while, it only shows "file.pbf" to select no included files.

    Yes, it is too late. We tried to change the partition size which aborts with an I/O error. Now most of the files are gone, chkdsk could not restore file access.

    many thanks, I think there is no hope (discouraged)

    Perhaps you might want to look into data recovery software available out there. Best of luck to you and your 1's and 0's.

    Hi Joe,

    What is the state of that partition? Does it show normally in Paragon and Disk Management?

    Probably worth making an image of the rest of the partitions/drive now just in case.

    After imaging everything, You may be able to Delete the partition - using something else, e.g. Gparted free boot disc - then see if Paragon is happy to undelete it.

    See if that helps.

    Hi SIW2,

    the problem is, that the filestructure is corrupt after the unseccessful partition resize. I tried to read the above mentioned image files, but I cannot access the files probably inside them.

    Currently I'm running a file recovery utility.

    After that I can delete the partition and decide if it makes sense to use this disk further.
