This weekend I did a full backup (image) of my C-drive with TruImage. After the download I discovered that the image was corrupt, but the computer crashed about an hour afterward. The backup is located on a 115 gig hard drive located externally and connected via an USB cable. The two 250 gig hard drives on my system are SATA and connected to the motherboard via a PCI card (Adaptec). I tried a restore and after nearly 12 hours I learned that the backup was corrupt and nothing was salvageable. I was somewhat irate. OK, I then reformatted the two hard drives because the restore went to the wrong hard drive and wiped out an earlier image (I was irate again). Last night I tried a file-based restoration and it canceled the drivers for my SATA drives. This time the partial restoration took 18+ hours and I was told again that the file was corrupt and no files were transferred. The backup is 89 gig. There MUST be away to rescue this file. Any suggestions?? Thanks.
