I created 4 complete boot partition backups (about 4 Gigs) to a local hard drive over the past month from the Windows environment. All backups were verified several times. Today I needed to restore my computer which is serving files for multiple computers. I restored the backup I made a couple days ago. The computer just kept rebooting. (it would get to the end of the windows loading screen, just before the login screen, and then reboot). So I tried to restore from the remaining backups and got the same problem. What gives? Luckily I had a Ghost backup (on the same internal disk) which restored perfectly. I have a feeling that if the Acronis backups are created when in the Linux environment that they will be OK. I am going to test this. But I will NEVER EVER depend on an Acronis backup created from within Windows, even if one restores correctly during a test.
