Acronis Back up to DVD+R

  450223 06:23 17 Jan 2006

Acronis 9(1).O.S_EN.EXE 1.1 Buils 225 purchased/downloaded
About... reports Build 2.277

I Have been happily making Full and incremental back up to a USB hard drive (having done a test restore of the first saved image/volume), I thought all was well until I needed to do a restore for real a message comes up as corrupted, on all the images/volumes on the hard drive.

I have managed to do a back up to Philips CD-R discs though this is impractical as windows XP SP1, SP2 NTi CD writer & Acronis, only, loaded this runs to 7 discs! a full load of the programs I use is around 5GB!

I have tried Packard Bell, Memorex & Verbattum DVD+R All these discs report unsuitable media! and eject the disc!

I have NTi CD Writer software version loaded I have made sure it is set to UDF packet writing, I have set the slowest write speed within the software.

Acronis 9 says it supports DVD+R

Can not get a reply from Acronis themselves!

I really do not know what else I can do!

I run True Image 7, and I have no trouble backing up to Philips DVD+RW

This is a bit of a false report. TI still can't write directly to DVD - you have to use Packet Writing software. click here

Acronis True Image 7, does it no problem. It takes me 3 DCD RW discs. If there are problems, I'm glad I didn't upgrade but I am a strong supporter of TI.

I have just re read your link, and I do have InCD

Personally i never write images to DVD or CD. All it takes is one bad disk in a set and there goes your backup.....

Neither do I, but I have used DVD RW to test it. I Use one backup in Acronis secure Zone, and one on my Slave HD (Belt & Braces)-:)

I have one copy on a second hard drive and copy one a week to a USB Drive, as the Secure Zone is useless should the hard drive go kaput!

I have now abandoned Acronis it's rubbish! I have purchased Paragon 7.0 this works great I can even make the first DVD+RW disc bootable of the full back up set!
