Problems with LBA record in a restored OS partition

I've restored a crashed OS partition, with Acronis, from a backup image of the OS.

Now my boot manager/partition software Bare Metal says the restored drive "may not boot" becuase it ends on 615144911. The LBA begin is 63, end 615144914.

It did boot. But how do I get the LBA problem fixed?

This may be a different issue, but I'm also getting lack of permission errors from various applications (Dropbox, Snagit, Ultra Monitor, OneNote and Word).

I tried to share the appdata folder but many folders failed to allow me to do so.

Nothing you can do.  It is unlikely anything is there anyway.  You have a system that boots

Relax.  Any time you can recover from a crashed O/S and get, literally, 99.99999951% of the blocks back, it's been a good day.

I was going to come back with, "Getting 99.99999951% of the job done to perfection isn't good enough for you? Who do you think you are, my wife?"   ;)

Yea, theres a problem or two or 4, but it's ok.

I think I'll back it up and maybe try to install the new 8 preview on top of it?

Could be an issue of poorly written backup software.   If you copy 4, 8, 64 blocks at a time, it will run a heck of a lot faster then 1 block at a time.  Maybe the bozo who wrote the software skipped over the last chunk because it wasn't a multiple of the desired block size.

I'd look for a bug report.   If you wanted to know for sure, then get a freebie binary editor and put down some pattern of bytes on last few blocks, backup, change the data, then restore and compare.

If you can look at the backup image then see if your modified data is on the backup media.

Hmm interesting.
Bbackup and restore was done with Acronis True Image 12.

I wonder if they are what they use to be, as I've heard in the past they were the best.
I've found them cryptic and hard to follow, but I never changed, just tuffed it out till I sort of understand their system.

But this is not a good sign. I need something I can trust.
