Hello all, I tried to post this over at the TeraByte site but I could not create an account. They have a system called "VouchSafe" to verify you are an actual person and all I get are errors with it, so I could not create an account. Here is an example log file of what is occurring: [ 5/08/2012 12:02:49 am] /b /uy /um /priority:4 /base:N:\IFW\2012-05-wk1\Backup-w0-2012-05-06-2305 /f:N:\IFW\2012-05-wk1\Backup-w0-chg-$~YYYY$-$~MM$-$~DD$-$~HHMM$ /v /enc:3 /pw:xxxxxxxx /desc:HP_(C_Partition_Differential_Backup [ 5/08/2012 12:02:49 am] Image for Windows 2.71 (GUI) [ 5/08/2012 12:02:49 am] Starting HP_(C_Partition_Differential_Backup... imagew.exe /b /uy /um /base:"N:\IFW\2012-05-wk1\Backup-w0-2012-05-06-2305" /f:"N:\IFW\2012-05-wk1\Backup-w0-chg-$~YYYY$-$~MM$-$~DD$-$~HHMM$" /v /enc:3 /desc:"HP_(C_Partition_Differential_Backup" [ 5/08/2012 12:02:49 am] PHYLock is waiting for drive writing to stop ...

[ 5/08/2012 12:14:15 am] Operation Completed with Error Code 6 [ 5/08/2012 12:14:15 am] Stop What happens is the creating image part goes fine, then at the moment between finishing the image and starting the validation, IFW shuts down. No file has been saved to disk and I get a log typical of the one posted above. I have been using IFW for more than a year with no problems. None of the hardware has changed and I have done a check disk on all drives. I have checked permissions and security on all folders where the images are saved. No where have I found a problem. I did add the /hash command line a couple of weeks ago but it has been working perfectly until now. I have no idea what has changed on my system to be causing this. I have even done an uninstall the reinstall in case something had been corrupted in the IFW installation. I am at a loss and a dead end and need your help. Since I cannot post over to the TB forum, I really hope someone here can point me in the direction I need to be going.
