    I just bought TI 11 Home, and am trying my first backup.

    Acronis®*True*Image*Home® version 11.0 (build*8,101)

    I am trying to archive up about 280G's worth of data, where I am selecting the directory to backup.

    I get about 11% into said archive, and then TI 11 Home pops up this Message:

    Runtime Error!
    Program: ...mon Files\Acronis\TrueImageHome\TrueImageHomeService.exe

    This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
    Please contact the application's support team for more information.


    I get this MessageBox twice.

    When I click <OK>, it goes back to the main menu.
    Looking at the file it actually did create, it created an image of 29G's.
    (ie, yup, about 11% in)

    I have tried this 3 different times, and I always get the same result!
    About 10-11% into the archive, it bails with that weird error!

    There is nothing special about my system, nor my files that I am backing up.
    I am Windows XP Pro, SP2, 3G's of RAM.

    Any thoughts?

    Also, because it appears from doing a search, others have seen this problem as well...

    1) I am doing a "My Data", where I select 1 "toplevel" directory on my C: drive, which contains many (perhaps 200-300) subdirectories, and none of them are more than 3-4 levels deep.
    2) The size of this toplevel directory is about 280G's total, and contains about 47000 files.
    3) I have tried with "Compression" on and also off. No real difference. With compression off, it seems to fail earlier.

    I think your problem will be that your directory structure is too deep.

    If you can temporarily make it less than 255 sub directories, it might succeed.

    Oh, I've just reread your post, all the subdirectories are off the root directory?

    Do you have lots of images or mp3 files or even pdf's lurking, it might be one of these files is mildly corrupted and is causing TI to have a tantrum. Have you tried running Scandisk to check the file integrity?

    What happens if you try making an image file instead of a data only, this may work, and you'd still be able to mount or explore your image file to get to your files.

    As you note, the data only option has caused some people problems in the past.

    Yes, I have verified that all the files inside the directory/subdirectories are all valid and okay.

    Scandisk reports no errors.

    I have not tried a full image backup, but I really don't want to do that... I am interested in backing up ONLY 1 toplevel directory, all other files on the system aren't important.

    Have you run CHKDSK C: /R on this drive? Sometimes a drive error can cause TI to error out.

    What operating system are you using (Vista, XP, W9:cool:, and how is the drive formatted? (FAT32 or NTFS)

    It sounds like these are possibly music or photo files. These are already compressed, so compression won't make the backup any smaller. It might even make it larger. Therefore, just copying the files may be as efficient as using TI.

    If you want to do the equivalent of incremental backups where only changed or new files are backed up, there are lots of syncronization programs that can do that. My favorite is SecondCopy although it isn't free.
