I've just picked up my first LAN drive (a Freecom 1TB job) and ran a backup onto it overnight. Acronis popped up a couple of errors (could not write to the location) but I clicked retry and it went away. After the backup I was left with four files of varying sizes on the LAN drive totalling 225GB. I've booted up with the recovery disk that Acronis creates and tried to validate my backups to check that it can see the LAN drive okay. As long as I enter the full path properly (\\FND\\public) it can access it fine, however I receive an error message telling me "This is not the last volume of the backup" when I try to validate any of the four files. Does anyone have any ideas what's going on? I'm going away over Christmas in a weeks time and I need to have a full backup done before I leave and at the moment I'm left scratching my head with True Image.
