Hi, Going through the FAQ's, manual and some posts, it seems unclear on how to create an image on my hard drive to a DVD. I have an IBM X41 Tablet PC with a MATSHITA CD/DVD RW. I have the latest Acronis TI 9 build 2323. I insert my blank DVD in to my drive. I then choose to backup my entire disk from Acronis TI. After about 40 minutes (with approximately 50 minutes to go) I get a read error. In the lo file are two error messages: Error: Module 1 - Code 502 (0x101F6) Operation with partition "C:" was terminated. Details: Read error (0x70003) Error: Module 100 - Code 5 (0x640005) Operation has completed with errors. Is it possible to perform a full backup while the OS is in use? Do I have to perform this from a boot disk? I haven't worked with an image creator since the old Norton Ghost which was easy. I am having alot of problems thus far. Please advise. Thanks!
