    In my Acronis TI Home, when I run my daily backup, the schedule starts on time and runs through to "Operation has Succeeded", but each time the Log shows the warnings "File I/O error" and then "System cannot find the File Specified". As the runs are then shown to be completed successfully, perhaps I should not be too concerned, but is there anything I can do to prevent the warnings appearing? Thanks.

    Are you talking full backup images or data backups? Running daily full backup images or incremental backups can use up a LOT of HDD space. Have you looked to see if your storage drive is full?

    Have you ran validation checks on the images? If so, I assume they passed. If not, I suggest you do so.

    BTW... Daily backups with Acronis will use up a lot of space and really is not necessary. You can backup your files (which are what generally changes daily) on a daily basis using other programs (free ones, too) which will not use up any where near as much space. I run an incremental backup about once a moth to catch things like Windows updates and security program updates (firewall, spyware definitions, AV definitions, etc.)

    Am running data backups and the storage drive is only approximately one-third full, so no problem there.
    Unfortunately, being fairly new to Acronis, I don't know what validation checks are!
    I will try to get some guidance on other programs available. Thanks.

    Look under Tools for Validate backup archive

    Have run validation checks - appear to be OK. Have also run my daily backups routine a couple of times without receiving the error message re I/O errors, so hope this has cleared. Will keep an eye on things. Many thanks.
