I am also experiencing the error where the backup imaging terminates with an error message. I have generated this error with builds 2259, 2277, and 2289 (now current). I have sent the image to both a locally connected USB drive, and a network drive. I have booted TrueImage from bootable rescue CD, and from the F11 boot function. NOTHING has made any difference. In all cases I have tested, running the Check Archive on the resulting archive has reported that the archive is clean. In a couple of cases, I have restored the archive to a spare hard drive, apparently successfully. To be sure there was not an issue of corruption with this machine, I tried imaging the unit with TI 8.0.903: complete success. I am interested if ANYONE has discovered any workaround for this issue, or any other variable that appears to affect it. Other background: machine - Winbook notebook w/ Windows XP, partitioning not exotic: (0-Pri/Rescue, 1-PriActive/XPboot, 2-Pri/Data, 3-Extended, 4-Log/Imaging, 5-Log/Acronis SZ). Backup options... type:Entire Disk, Partition selection:all, Mode:new full backup, Password:none, Compression:high, Splitting:Fixed 700B, Additional: all disabled.
