I'm getting so annoyed with this! I've just satisfactorily backed up My Applications and My Data in Acronis, but when I get to My Emails, there's a problem.
It starts off ok, then the progress bar gets so far and then rapidly reverses and I get yet another error message about ModName MSVCR71.dll, followed by a memory could not be 'read' error.
I've repaired Acronis and recently ran sfc to repair a similar problem with CS3. What's so special about backing up Outlook 2003 which could cause a problem which didn't occur with Applications and Data?
I've got XP Home and no sp3 as that apparently causes problems with my Realtek sound card.
