Hi everybody, i created several password-protected backup images of my hard disk drives (normal compression) with Acronis TI 10.0. (Build 4942). The backup process was successful in all cases and the backup files were saved on an external USD HDD (Western Digital, 500 GB). When I now try to open one of the folders (using the Windows Vista Explorer) where a .tib file is in I'm immediately asked for the password of the backup file. However, I didn't want to open the .tib file itself, just the folder. Entering the password opens the .tib file. But then, after one or a few clicks the Windows Explorer crashes and restarts again. Sometimes I also got an error popup even though I cancelled the password popup (see attachment, it's unfortunately in German). It seems that Windows Vista Explorer always tries to open the .tib file even though only its surrounding folder was opened. On another PC running XP SP 2 everything works fine. Have you already observed something similar? Is there a solution for this problem available? Thanks in advance and best regards, drgenius P.S.: By the way, how long does it normally take to create a full image of a 160 GB HDD, containing two partitions with approx. 45 GB data in total, using normal compression? On my Win XP machine it took more than 4 hours. To me it seems TI 10.0 is very slow but I have no real experience. Moreover, the resulting backup file was approx. 40 GB and almost as large as the source. I though TI 10.0 would compress to around 65%.
