I performed a clean install of XP and had completely repartitioned my HD. Prior to this I used TI to create a backup of a group of folder that has necessary files and drivers for multiple OS. I backed up to a second computer’s hard drive. After the clean install and updating of XP_SP2, I loaded TI and restored my backup, which was originally backed up from a D drive, but is now being restored to a G drive. Right off the bat TI would give me errors for several files from the "Favorites" folder I had backed up. My choices were to retry, ignore or cancel. If I clicked retry It would give the error for the same file, if I clicked ignore, it moved on to the next file to give me the same error for that file. It didn't do this every single file being restored (thank you Lord!)m but regardless of giving me the error, the actual file it said it couldn't restore was ALREADY restored!! I found this out by noticing that the error was talking about one file, while the file displayed on TI's progress bar was a different file. So, I went to the drive where they were being restored and low and behold, all the files I had clicked ignore on were actually there! There were driver file executables that produced the same error, and those files would be there to, during the process of restoring, without their usual icons, but with the correct file size. When the backup was finishing I noticed the last thing TI was do was restoring the drive info. After the restore was complete, all those files that had a generic icon now had their original icons. Some of the files that restore said it couldn't restore were several photos from my digital camera. I clicked ignore on over 100 photos (there were thousands restored) and made a note of several of them. ALL photos, even those that I clicked ignore were restored. While everything was restored as it should be, it is a little disconcerting that I had to click ignore, or the backup would have just stopped and waited for my response. Not very good for an unattended restore. I'm really having mixed results with this Acronis software and debating as to whether or not to just throw in the towel and get my money back before my 30 day money back guarantee runs out and try some thing else. I also noticed that TI would NOT install on my ME partition. It would get all the way done and put the icon on the desktop, then completely back out and say the installation was incomplete. I did this several times before I decided to check out the TI requirements and noticed that Acronis doesn't say TI supports win 95, 98, 98SE, or ME. The requirements start at Win 2000 and up. I read a post on the DDS forum about someone having that same trouble with DDS and was told to delete everything in the local settings/temp folder and reinstall. DDS didn't give me any install issues. Frustrating at times, cool at others. Not really confident that I could successfully restore a OS if I had to.
