Hi Everybody, I made my frist back-up image of my "C" drive on-to 6 DVD+R discs . (this image contained my entire operating system, Windows XP pro,which contains the partition which is 99.9% of my hard drive, the other partition is a tiny Dell utilities area) Then when I ran the "Back-up Archive validation" tool, the log said the operation had succeeded, but it also showed 4 messages saying "the specifed file does not exist" . Does this mean my image back-up is incomplete ? Or is the "archive validation tool" the wrong way to check a image back-up? I used the "explore image" tool, and it would break the "image pie slice" down to a picture of my "C' drive but with no objects inside. Do I need to have a complete image for the "explore image tool" to work properly? Your feed back will be appreciated !Thanks !
