    I finally got around to doing a current BU of my C drive after recovering my system from my own stupidity last month with Autoruns by backing up my data and restoring a 5+ month old image and then restoring the data.

    I setup the backup routine last night to create an image of the C partition to a seperate internal HD and when the "Commit Pending Operation" window came up, I shut off the monitor and went to bed. When I went back to the computer this AM expecting to find a new image successfully created message I found, instead, that nothing had happened. The Commit Pending Operation window was still up and in the bottom left corner of the main window it said "Ready" and in the lower right corner it said "No Backup Started". I had never run into this before and have been very satisfied with TI 7, finding no compelling reason to upgrade.

    Since I just used it 3-4 weeks ago to restore the old image and it performed flawlessly, I can't imagine what the problem is. I haven't changed anything major with the system except a few updates from MS and was going to upgrade to IE 8 after creating the image. I tried a Restart without any change and a total shutdown and restart during which the MS updater installed the 2007 Card Reader on it's own when I have things set not to install anything without asking me first. At any rate, nothing changed and TI will still not start an image creation routine.

    The only thing I noticed that was strange is that in the bottom of the main TI window there were several faint icons in the Tasks section next to the Schedule Task icon and all were old backup routines that had either completed or failed for one reason or another. All were titled "Current Operation". Some were from 2006 and there was one for the April image I had just restored and one for the failed image I tried to create last night. All totaled there were about 7 of these. Right clicking gave several options, one of which was Delete. I deleted all but the April image and the current attempt without any changes, so I deleted the April icon and finally the one from last night and tried again to create the image. No joy. I've attached the screenshots of the TI main screen and the Tasks section to better illustrate what I'm seeing.

    Any ideas ?? Could the installation have become corrupt ?? Might an uninstall/reinstall of the program help ??

    Doc,
    Uninstall/reinstall may help. Certainly worth a shot I suppose.

    TI ver 7 is really getting creaky in the knees by now though. I would spring for the latest or at least a newer version. There have been about 5 upgrades for TI since ver 7. I'm on ver. 2009 home now which came after version 11, so you can see, a lot of water has gone over the dam since ver. 7.
    I don't recall seeing the "Commit" option on any recent versions. TI Disk Director still uses that for HD changes to give you a last chance to change your mind before making the changes permanent but in True Image? Don't remember that.
    TI 2010 is coming soon but personally, I would get rid of 7 ASAP.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Thanks for the input Bob. :0

    I know TI7 is a bit long in the tooth, but I have always worked on the premiss that if it ain't broke, don't fix it (or upgrade). Guess this time it's broke. I'll try the uninstall/reinstall as the lesser of evils and see what happens. I'll post back with the results tomorrow.

    Problem solved !!!

    Again, the issue was my own stupidity. I had disabled a couple of the Acronis items that start on bootup using CCleaner and it seems that TI wanted them to be running. I believe I'm going to stop playing with things I don't understand for no reason other than to see what happens. I cause myself more headaches than the thing's I'm changing ever did.
