Hello, I work for a company that sells virtual tape devices and I'm trying to certify our products with Acronis software for a customer. I have trial versions of True Image Echo Server for Windows and True Image for Microsoft Windows Small Business Server. I have had no problems getting our products to work with TIESfW on Windows 2003 Server Standard, but I am having problems with TIMWSBS on Windows SBS 2003 R2. For testing purposes I backup using the 'My Data' option and select files which are never accessed or modified. Backups complete successfully, but I run into problems if I try to validate an archive, or do a restore. If I select the validate option during a backup, I get a C++ runtime error when the validation begins. If I try to validate with the 'Explore and Validate Backup Archives' tool I get an error that the archive is corrupt. If I try to restore one of three things happens: 1) Acronis hangs after I select the tape drive on the 'Backup Archive Selection' page and click next. 2) I am able to move to the page after the 'Backup Archive Selection' but Acronis does not list anything to restore. 3) Very rarely, I am able to select files to restore but when I submit the job it fails immediately. I can close Acronis and use NTbackup to backup, verify, and restore with no problems, so I don't think it's a hardware/connection problem. I am working on putting up some screenshots of these problems. Any help would be appreciated. Edit: I installed TIESfW on Windows SBS 2003 R2 and I was able to validate and restore, so whatever is going wrong is specific to TIMWSBS, not the OS.
