    I have just installed the lastet version of Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation. I now want to make a full backup of the XP NTFS system drive to a networked Buffalo TeraStation model HD-H1.0TGL/R5, which is setup as RAID 5, shared on the network and 'mapped' to the computer as drive L:

    When I begin to use the wizard to make the full backup, I get the error message:

    "The backup archive file will be created on a volume with unknown structure. Please note that you will not be able to restore this backup archive when booting from the rescue media. Are you sure you want to continue with this procedure?" I abandoned the setup of this backup.

    I can mount a full backup made previously on the TeraStation with v TI v 8, which did not give this error message when I made it.

    I should be grateful for advice on how to enable TI 9.1 'discover' the structure of the TeraStation, or how to get round this problem. I need to make and use backups to restore a corrupted or failed system drive.

    Thanks for any help!

    Hello cspry,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Workstation Disk Backup Software.

    Please accept our apologies for the delay with the response.

    Please do as beenthereb4 has suggested and follow the instructions provided in this previous post of mine.

    Please also clarify what happens if you ignore the warning message and press "Yes" button. Let us know if you are able to create an image saving it to your Buffalo TeraStation. Are you able to verify\restore the resulting image archive?

    Thank you.
