    My friend uses True Image 8.0 Build 768.
    He try to crete hard disk backup.
    His hard disk is big(more than 100G)
    He can't save one disk, become multiple back up CD-R.
    After create that, He try to restore to another hard disk drive.
    But can't restore True Image said "Archive file is corruptted."

    When he create image file to hard disk drive, He can restore.
    Only when he create image file to CD-R, He can't restore.
    Could you tell him solution.


    Thank you.

    Hi, tzm

    Welcome to Wilders and Acronis Forums.

    Tell him to get the latest Build of Ti8 it is #774.

    Ask him to try different CD Media [Make of CD's]

    Tell him to use CD-RW [700mb] instead of CD-R [less coasters].

    Also tell him to split the Images to 650mb to the HDD, then burn to the CD-RW.

    Take Care,
    TheQuest :cool:

    Hello tzm,

    Please also note that your friend should start the restoration process with the last burned CD disc (where the last part of the image resides).

    Thank you.

    P.S. Garry, thank you for your input on this forum.

    Pre-sales question. Inlaws and I recently purchased identical systems, their system has since been "hijacked" by malware. I'm tasked with getting them back to life, now that they have a firewall. Question is how best to do this? I was thinking I could buy True Image 8, and clone my drive onto theirs. But I'm hoping their is an easier method.

    Could I do a full image backup of my drive (8GB used, 72 GB free) to a USB external drive (or set of CD-R disks) and then restore the that image on their machine? Would this method mean buying 2 copies of TI8?

    Or does it make more sense to do the Disk Clone method?

    I'm mainly looking for minimum labor/time/effort, but would also like to know possible pitfalls associated with either approach.

    Thanks, in advance.

    Legally my guess is that you would have to buy 2 copies of True Image 8 as I'd imagine you are only supposed to install it on your own computer. Why not try getting rid of the malware using something like Spy Sweeper (it protects against over 68,000 versions of adware etc) or Pest Patrol (pretty much as effective as Spy Sweeper)? From my experience they along with a good anti-virus program would most likely get rid of all of it without the more drastic step of restoring an image of your computer to there’s.

    Yep, I considered malware removal tools, but right or wrong, I've convinced myself that starting over is much saner for me; there is no telling how compromised their machine is at this point; and I have to limit my support exposure.

    Does anyone have any advice for me on these two questions:

    Could I do a full image backup of my drive (8GB used, 72 GB free) to a USB external drive (or set of CD-R disks) and then restore that image on their machine?

    Or does it make more sense to do the Disk Clone method?

    Anyone out there tried either method?
    Thanks.
