Hi, Acronis True Image 6 was installed on my computer when I bought it one and a half year ago. I bought a Maxtor external hard drive. For a while I did an image of my HD on the Maxtor once a week. Then a few weeks ago, I'm starting to have this error message near the end of the copy, at exactly 8 min 12 sec before the end. The message is: Failed to write data to the image archive. A possible reason may be poor media quality. I thought perhaps the Maxtor HD was defect, but I ran scandisk and it seems perfect. Any idea anyone ? Thanks.
