I am attempting my first full disk image creation using TI version 8.0 build 786 on a Windows XP Pro desktop with two hard drives. I have used version 7.0 successfully for about a year. I used the default options. The creation appeared to run succesfully in that the drop down screen with the % completion bars seemed to run normally to 100%. I did not get a confirmation screen that the image was created successfully. I checked the log and the last entry was - Pending operation - 104 started "creating partition image." There were no indications of an error but no indications that it was successful either. A tif file was created but is somewhat smaller than I anticipated. When I went to shut down the computer I got a message about some kind of Acronis problem (I forget the detail) as part of the windows shut down process. Any clues? I am concerned as I don't want to rely on a faulty backup and don't know how to check it.
