My ACER laptop is backed up with Fat32 disk (external -USB) and so has multiple TI files (4 Gb each) labelled MyBackup1.tib.......to......MyBackup17.tib The Laptop has crashed - it was interrupted during a Windows XP SP3 download - and now the Windows bootup can't complete itself and goes into a endless cycle. To restore - I started my bootup with an ATI (V 11) bootup CD and Acronis was able to read the internal HDD size (& partitions) and also found my .tib files on the external HDD. I then selected 'MyBackup1.tib' to start the backup process - I assumed that it would then thread its way through the remaining .tib files. Was that correct? After 30 min. -backup halted and Laptop shut down - power & all. Same thing repeated on 2nd try. Did I select the starting .tib file correctly? or possibly my internal HDD is fried?
