I have install Acronis True Image Home 2012. Backups finish successfully to the new ADATA SH93 500GB external HD. When I boot the machine using the Acronis bootable media and attempt a recovery from the USB drive it does not show up. Once I enter the recovery console within the bootable media first thing I'm given an error stating "failed to read from sector '128' of hard disk '1'." My options are to retry, ignore all... Ignore all is the only thing that lets me go any further.
If I enter the disk management utility within the boot media I can see the hard drive however it states not initialized. The external drive is formatted using Fat32.
I have tried the same process using Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 with the same results. I have attached this drive to multiple machines and OS's and they all are able to see the data with no problems. I've also performed a check disk and a Seatools test of the HD and everything reports OK. The HD itself shows no signs
Thank you in advance.
