Hi Everyone, Today I tried another drive image back up of my "C" drive to my "J" partition on a external HD. I used TI 10 # 4942 to back up to my 90 GB. partition on a Seagate external HD. With Windows XP Pro. It looks like a drive image back up was completed. But no validate archive operation was started which I chose to use. In the post command option window I inserted this option, for the frist time, to shut down both Windows and then my computer: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\TSSHUTDN.EXE 0 /DELAY:0 /POWERDOWN . I successfully tested this command with the Run Utility earlier in the day. And I received these error messages : 1. System error occurred while executing: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\TSSHUTDN.EXE 0 /DELAY:0 /POWERDOWN (0x103FF) Tag = 0x858CC05F488A8C54 The system cannot find the file specified (0xFFF0) code = 80070002 Tag = 0xBD28FDBD64EDB8A6 2. Execution of user command C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\TSSHUTDN.EXE 0 /DELAY:0 /POWERDOWN failed. Error code: 1 If anyone wants to read up on this command, go to : http://www.aumha.org/win5/a/shutcut.php Also I'm attaching 2 Acronis report files with this post . If anyone has any feed back it will be appreciated !
