Booting is not good !!!

I'm booting off Acronis True Image 2018 (USB stick) with Linux recovery.

Running the backup Wizard if I select an EXT4 partition I get:

"Some partitions contain errors and can only be imaged sector by sector".. etc.

Are you kidding me - Still no support for EXT4! (Unless I do sector by sector I guess).

How does Acronis 2019 do here? I don't think there is any improvement is there?

I can't believe it states here that 2014 and 2015 were compatible - should have stuck with these products - why did I bother upgrading?

Welcome to these User Forums.

I regularly make a backup of my Ubuntu 18.04 EXT4 partitions (25GB in total) where the backup image size is only 7GB, so do not see evidence that Sector-by-Sector mode is being used.

The backup log for the backup task shows:

I am backing up using ATI 2019 running from Windows as this is a dual-boot system but would expect the Acronis Rescue Media to behave in the same way.

The app is telling you it has found disk corruption.  By the looks of Steve's post I would say that is correct.

An update:  I booted from my ATI 2019 Rescue Media and made a new backup of my Ubuntu EXT4 partition and again there was no mention of any problems with EXT4 or needing to use Sector-by-Sector mode.
