My turn to post a problem! Acronis and I have been working this one for nearly 2 months. TI7/builds 611, 613, 627. Was there a 619? If there was I missed it! TI/WinGUI After clicking "Proceed" on a manual image creation TI analyizes each partition before it starts the actual image creation (just as it does when you launch it). A split second after clicking "Proceed" the message box (title of thread) appears. This is so random and so intermittent that so far it has been impossible to nail down. Now, it is possible to continue by clicking on thru the modal dialog but NO thank you! I relaunch! TheQuest, beenthereb4, have any of you seen this? And if so, what might you know? Bottom line; no work stoppage here! I just do not like "random" error messages, PERIOD! Mike p.s. DrW wont trap it!
