Create a backup of my 80GB Windows primary C: parition.
I have a Zyxel NAS 310.
Backup results in error: 0x70020
Operation with partition '0-0' was terminated.
The archive is corrupted (0x70020)
Tag = 0xF5F8CBCF76155663
Error occurs when the backup is created in Windows and the backup location is the NAS drive.
Validation is successful if I backup to the internal SATA drive where the Windows primary C: parition resides.
Validation is successful when I creating a backup from the boot disk.
Validation is successful if a backup made from the boot disk is subsequently validated from within Windows.
From the above, it looks as though the issue is with the creation of the .tib file within a network environment.
Steps to rectify
I followed the steps outlined in many other posts:
1. I ran "chkdsk /r" on every partition on my SATA drive to check for disk inconsistancies. None were found.
2. I ran the memtest utility over a period of 2 days. No errors were found.
This [error: 0x70020] has been a much documented issue since ATI2012. I had been running ATI2012 for a year without realising that backups made to my NAS drive were all corrupt! There were no indications of anything untoward and I learnt the hard way... The most annoying part is that unless you turn on the "Validate backup when it is created" option, you have no idea that your backup is corrupt.
I was hoping that ATI2013 would be improved, hence downloading the trial version.
It's not feasible to reboot from the CD each time I need to create an image. I can't afford the down time. I look at the boot CD as more of an emergency disk rather than a primary method of running the software.
Can anyone help?
