I am running TI 8.0 on a Dell Inspiron 4150 laptop with Windows XP Home SP2. My 30 gb hard drive has 2 partitions: a FAT16 partition, which I believe contains an archive of the OS, and an NTFS partition (c containing the OS and my files. My disk images are stored on an external USB hard drive. Prior to attempting to restore a previous image, I verified it and successfully explored it, so everything seemed to be OK at that point. I also ran Microsoft's "chkdsk" to make sure my hard drive was OK, which it was. I commenced the restore by booting up the Acronis Recovery Boot Disk I had created on a CD. I attempted to restore the C: partition only. The restoration proceeded normally until it got about one-quarter of the way through, at which point the activity light on the destination drive went out, the computer started making a rapid clicking sound, and an error message came up: "Failed to write to sector 6,087,687 of the hard disk". I clicked "ignore" and another error came up for the next sequential sector. Then I clicked "Ignore All", but the restoration did not seem to proceed. The activity light on the destination drive stayed out and the rapid clicking noise continued. After about 2 minutes, I clicked the "cancel" button out of concern that the computer might be damaged. I tried to restore another image, and the same sequence occurred. Now I have a computer that doesn't function at all. HELP!
