Having owned a genuine copy of TI 9.0 for about nine months, and not having had to use it in anger, I decided yesterday to check out a Backup Archive that I have for a desktop. This archive is on a partition of an external drive so I copied and pasted it to a partition on the slave drive with the intention of exploring it to ensure its ‘soundness’.
The information obtained from it so far is: This is image archive. Full backup of C: 11/06/06.
After loading the program right click the Image in Windows Explorer choose Explore, It will give the Image a Drive Letter, To finish with the Program after you have been working with it Right click on the Image Drive Letter and choose Unplug
Thank you anskyber and woodchip, sorry about the delay in responding.
Acronis is already loaded on the main OS partition but I have been trying to open/explore the archive in explorer. Opening Acronis from the Start menu I selected Archive Verification with the following results:
Operation 1 of 1. Verifying backup archive.
Operation has completed with errors. Please see log for more details.

Yes that Image is no good, You should when creating a Image choose not to verify the Image but do it after, also save the Image first to the Hard Drive in the Computer to another Partition, then copy that to External drive for safe keeping if it a good Image
Take my word for it, It is something you cannot be without today. It will become easy as you use it. But I do not create the secure partition bit, I just use it Simple as that's what I am, Simple. Full Images each time. And will delete one if I feel I do not need it any more
I'm about to turn in with this little thought on my mind - the original backup image is still on my external drive together with BU images of another desktop and a laptop on seperate partitions. Are they likely to be corrupt and useless, or, is there a way to find out? Goodnight for now!
