I have Acronis True Image 9.0 I installed it on a Windows 98 machine. I also have an Iomega Rev drive but it doesn't support Win 98. I tried to make the archive on the same disk as the data. After 1.5 gb or so it crashed. Next I set up a cross over ethernet cable to my Win XP machine and set up file sharing. I asked Acronis to save the data to the WinXP machine. From there I will save it to the backup Rev disk. Same result--crashed after 1.5 gb. Now I am attempting to use the files and folders only option also over my cross over network (PC to PC network). So far it hasn't crashed, but I'd really like a full mirror image. for now, I'm just backing up the C drive and hopefully that will be enough. BTW, I turned off my screen saver and power save settings. I ran scandisk surface scan before starting, but no dice--still errors out. can anyone help me?
