Hi gang, Ths is really the first time I could not get past a problem with Acronis TI. I have 2 computers. One is running Win XP Pro AMD 64 3000+ 1GB of RAM with a hard drive specifically for images to be archived on. The other is my Compaq laptop running Win XP Home, AMD 64 TL-50 1.6Ghz with 1 GB Ram. I have Acronis TI 9 Home v.9 build 3677 on both. When I try to backup my laptop C partition to the shared "IMAGES" folder on the desktop secondary storage hard drive, the laptop runs fine but the desktop hard drive memory resources drop to nothing. It eithers crashes or it takes 3 hours to finish. The storage hd has 100GB of free room. The laptop hard drive is a 64GB partition but is only using 9BG of space. I use all the default settings under the BACKUP option. I am using Windows simple sharing. Both computers are running Zone Alarm 6.5 Security Suite up to date as of today. I tried shutting all other programs including ZA...no soap! Doesn't make a difference. My memory resources drop down to 8MB's or it crashes. I did not have this problem before upgrading to the latest version of TI 9 Home. I tried uninstalling, etc. No soap. Also, the memory resources will not return unless I reboot the desktop PC. I am utterly mystified. Any suggestions?
