Got this error (please refer to attached picture) when trying to create an image of RHEL OS drive. And it's not ideal to create an image of size 440GB which is the entire drive including the free space..

Any idea why this is happening and how to fix it so that i can just create the image of the used space instead?

Is it possible the machine was hard powered off vs shutdown before booting to the media?


Try a fsck and then boot to the media again to capture the image.

Hello Octo,

thank you for posting on Acronis forums!

According to a screenshot you shared, there is an unsupported, corrupted or encrypted file system.
