Not sure where to post this so will start here. I back up my system nightly using Drive Image 7 and an external Maxtor OneTouch III USB drive. I have thousands of pictures and have discovered that the pictures that are larger than about 150K (smaller images back up and restore OK) do not back up properly. When I access them from the Maxtor Drive or restore them to my hard drive and then view them, the top of the picture is OK but somewhere down the image the color appears to separate and the image begins to repeat the good portion that is at the top. It looks to me like all data is not being restored but this is only a guess. The size of the backup and the size of the original image match. I'm using Windows XP Pro. I do not think that the backup always had this problem but can't say for sure since most of the files back up and restore OK. Thanks, Dave.
