I have been using TI for a few weeks now and have set up a scheduled task to create a full image on a daily basis to an external hard drive connected via firewire. Today I decided to launch the scheduled task manually (right clicked the task and selected 'Start Now.' After it completed creating the image, I ran a 'Check Image' and after a few minutes TI gave an error message saying that the image was corrupt. I tried to run another backup, but an error popped up saying the external drive was not formatted. When I tried to access the drive through Windows Explorer, I get the same drive not formatted message. It appears that creating the image (or trying to check it) wiped the data from the external drive. I had a number of video files, transferred from my Tivo, as well as a few TI images on the 200 gb drive. Is there any way to recover the data? I am now hesitant to use TI if there is a possibility of this kind of disaster occurring again.
