    I am having a weird problem with Acronis True Image 9.0.

    In Windows XP, I go to "Check Archive" and the image I have of my main system drive checks out okay; no problems, etc.

    However, when I check the image using the Acronis Boot CD, it says the image is corrupt! The image is stored on a seperate hard drive, ATA-100 drive (my system drive is SATA II). The partition the image is stored on is NTFS format.

    Is this a known problem, or is something wrong? I cannot figure this out and am worried that Acronis 9.0 says the image is fine in WinXP but when I use the boot CD it says it is corrupt.

    Thanks very much

    Manually check the file sizes of your tib files to see if they match the size you chose.
    If possible do a restore, if the file sizes look good. Only way to test for sure.

    Everything looks fine on file sizes; I tried doing a restore and that is when I got the corruption error.

    I'm having a similar problem that Aronis is working on at the momemt. Backups in WinXP work fine, but fail the verifiication. However, I seem to have better luck with the boot CD, but not perfect. The problem is intermittent (the worst kind), so I never know when I'm getting a bad backup. I can mount the file as a drive and seem to be able to get at the files okay, but can't restore them.

    I found this out the hard way when I had to restore an image but it failed halfway through. Since it was my boot drive, I lost everything. Luckily, I found an image I had made much earlier to be okay.

    I just had major problems with Acronis with regards to a new ATI motherboad I installed. TI wouldn't recognize any hard drives with the boot CD. I ended up (for other reasons) replacing the motherboard, but now have unreliable backups, both in TI8 and TI9.

    Hi All,

    I have the same problem as the user. The Archive work fine in XP but TI indicates that it is corrupted. I am using version 9.0. I guess this is a bug in TI. Any taker?
