I needed to restore my hard drive image last night and it was a very frustrating experience. I save my images on an external USB ver 2 drive. I tried three times to restore from the USB and each time it failed part way through with a message that either the image was corrupt or the drive had been disconnected. As a last resort I took the USB drive and connected it to another computer in my house and copied the image file to that computer's hard drive. I was then able to do a successful restore from a network drive vs the USB. Does anyone know why Acronis had a problem with the USB drive?
