Hello. I just downloaded the trial for ATI 9.0 and tried a quick image of my C: drive (partition one of two on an 80GB PATA drive) to an external USB HD. At about 90% the backup terminates saying 'completed with errors'. The error code is Module: 1, error 502 (0x101F6), Read Error (0x70003). I'm using normal compression and high priority, anti-virus is turned off as is my anti-spyware software. The really odd thing is that there's not even a partial backup file on the target external volume. Would ATI delete the target file due to the read error? Very odd. I like the look of this program a lot. I bought Ghost 10 but didn't install it due to all the bad feedback I read. This looks like users have a better experience but it won't do me much good if I can't get it to back up the drive. One more thing: I can successfully clone this drive to my external USB using Casper XP, and I was able to run chkdsk without errors, so I think the source volume should be OK. Any help you can give would be much appreciated.
