If a validation of a backup fails can the backup somehow be used in a pinch (other than merely) copying files?
I like others have been plagued by the
"Error while checking the metadata integrity of points in time in the archive" menace
and shall try swapping memory modules or running them at a lower speed based on its SPD information. I do have some slower but trusty Crucial sticks laying around.
But this does beg the question that I have encountered in the past with ATI backups and that is when it fails to validate, ATI does not let me restore from the backup, I can only browse and copy; Is there a way around this, enabling me to use the backup and then deal with anything that I need to straighten out?
In the past I have even had what were initially validated backups turn out not to be valid later either when I wanted to use it or when I would occasionally run a validation just to check on the backups status, being fearful of this very issue (I have used THI since the 2010 edition and each version seems to have a validation issue).
Afterall, the idea of a backup is to able to use it when you need it and that is the very reason that we validate our backups!
If the memory swap or lowering my memory speed works I shall do a followup post in this thread. If it doesn't then I will also as I cry out for help.
Thank you for any help or insight that you can give to me.
