Drive Image - CRC Error (Eh?)
Posted on 2003-03-02
Have used Drive Image to make partition images for a long while. Never any problems.
Just after fresh WinXP Pro installation (FAT32), ran into trouble - after 77% of imaging process completed, gives 'Error# 45: CRC error in data', and proceeds to delete the image file and reboot WinXP. Happens every time, whether running from WinXP or from boot disk, when I attempt to image my C: partition (5Gb) from HDD0 to a 17Gb partition on HDD1 (or when imaging to CDRs).
As per Powerquest's suggestion, the HDDs are now on separate IDE channels (were on same channel). CHKDSK shows HDD0 to be OK except for 4kb in bad sectors (have run CHKDSK /R), and HDD1 all OK.
Any thoughts anyone, please? Is this related to the bad sector message? Will eventually try a reinstall of XP, but would like to make an image first in case that doesn't work, but can't make an image because .... you get the picture, I'm sure.
