    I run an Acronis backup every couple of weeks with no problem. Yesterday, however, after 15 minutes into the incremental backup, I received the error message E000101F4 “Failed to read data from the disk.” I selected “Retry” but it reappeared. I then restarted the computer and tried again to run the backup, but the same message appeared.
    I clicked “Ignore” and then the same message appeared, with the following subtext (I didn’t copy down the subtext for the previous errors): “Failed to read from the sector 88,492,807 of the hard disk 1.”
    I clicked “Ignore” and the message reappeared with this subtext: “Failed to read from the sector 88,492,815 of the hard disk 1.”
    I again clicked “Ignore” and the backup continued as normal.

    What does this error message mean? Is there an error on my laptop or the original Acronis backup on which the Acronis backup is based? I ran a check disk on my laptop last night and received this report log:

    Hi jmt365, as you only have 12 KB in bad sectors its nothing to worry about. If you wanted, you could run chkdsk with both boxes ticked.
    -
    I suggest reading Acronis user manual for your particular version, your backups are not as Acronis recommends.

    jmt,
    Hello... If you do a search for that error message, there are many "hits" but before we go into that did you when running "chkdsk" did you use the "r" switch? (this will repair errors found) Regards Fred

    Roderunner,
    Hello.... No, i was not aware of that method...does seem easier . I have always run "chkdsk" from the elevated command prompt that give all the options.Thanks for the "heads up" Regards Fred

    I had both boxes (Automatically fix file system errors as well as Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors) checked when I ran the scan.

    Roderunner: what in my backup is not as Acronis recommends? As I understand, Acronis recommends incremental backups whenever a full backup has already been made.

    UPDATE:

    On 11.18.10, I restarted the computer and while it was restarting, I got a black screen with white letters giving the message “Checking file system on C: the type of the file system is NTFS. One of the disks needs to be checked for consistency …” I didn't previously program a Check Disk. I suspect some kind of error caused this.

    Here is the Wininit log:

    So previously, I had 12 kb in bad sectors. Now I have 20 kb in bad sectors.

    Then on 11.19.10, after I logged into my computer, the screen was blank for about 10 seconds with a tick tick tick tick sound, like the system was trying to read the hard drive but couldn’t. Then the computer came back to life.

    Is my hard drive deteriorating? It was purchased in Aug. 2008 (a little over 2 years ago) and is an HP Pavilion DV2500 laptop with AMD Turion(tm) 64 X2 TL-60 2.00 GHz processor that supposedly makes the hard drive spin less so as to last longer, but this may have been puffery by the salesman just to get me to spend more money on this particular model.

    Read this carefully.

    3.2 Full, incremental and differential backups

    Acronis True Image Home can create full, incremental and differential backups.

    A full backup contains all data at the moment of backup creation. It forms a base for further
    incremental or differential backup or is used as a standalone archive. A full backup has the shortest
    recovery time compared to incremental or differential ones.

    An incremental backup file only contains data changed since the last backup of any type (full,
    incremental, or differential). Therefore, it is smaller and takes less time to create, but as it doesn't
    contain all the data; all the previous backups and the initial full backup are required for recovery.

    Unlike an incremental backup, when every backup procedure creates the next file in a "chain", a
    differential backup creates an independent file, containing all changes since the last full backup.
    Generally, a differential backup will be recovered faster than an incremental one, as it does not have
    to process through a long chain of previous backups.
    ----

    A standalone full backup might be an optimal solution if you often roll back the system to its initial
    state or if you do not like to manage multiple files. If you are interested in saving only the last data
    state to be able to recover it in case of system failure, consider the differential backup. It is
    particularly effective if your data changes tend to be few compared to the full data volume.

    The same is true for incremental backup. These are most useful when you need frequent backups and
    the ability to roll back to a specific point in time. Having created a full backup once, if you then create
    an incremental backup each day of a month, you will get the same result as if you created full
    backups every day. Incremental images are considerably smaller than full or differential images.

    Incremental or Differential?

    The difference is typically that in an incremental backup, only the files changed or added since the
    last time the backup ran are added to the archive. With a differential backup, all the files changed or
    added since the initial full backup, are added to the archive. Thus, differential backups take longer to
    run than incremental backups. When recovering from an incremental backup, the program must copy
    the entire initial backup and then step through each of the previous backups to retrieve all the
    updated files. A differential backup, on the other hand, can be recovered quicker because the
    software must copy only the original backup and the most recent one.

    An incremental or differential backup created after a disk is defragmented might be considerably
    larger than usual. This is because the defragmentation program changes file locations on the disk and
    the backups reflect these changes. Therefore, it is recommended that you re-create a full backup
    after disk defragmentation.

    I had the same problem but on an external hdd. I transfered the files to a new one and trashed the old ext. hdd. Sorry I can't help further but don't be too quick, someone more knowlegeable may help.
    Good Luck

    I tried running another Acronis backup today, and I got these messages from Acronis:

    "Failed to read from the sector 295,778,783 of the hard disk 1." I click Ignore and got this a few minutes later:

    "Failed to read from the sector 295,778,799 of the hard disk 1." I click Ignore and got this a few minutes later:

    "Failed to read from the sector 295,778,807 of the hard disk 1." I click Ignore and got this a few minutes later:

    "Failed to read from the sector 295,778,823 of the hard disk 1." I click Ignore and got this a few minutes later:

    "Failed to read from the sector 295,778,855 of the hard disk 1." I click Ignore and got this a few minutes later:

    "Failed to read from the sector 295,778,911 of the hard disk 1." I click Ignore and got this a few minutes later:

    "Failed to read from the sector 295,778,959 of the hard disk 1." I click Ignore and got this a few minutes later:

    "Failed to read from the sector 295,778,975 of the hard disk 1." I click Ignore and got this a few minutes later:

    "Failed to read from the sector 295,778,991 of the hard disk 1." I later clicked Ignore All and the backup completed as normal.

    Does anyone know whether these errors are on my original backup on my external hard drive or are they errors on my laptop's C drive. If the latter, then does this, coupled with the 12 and 20 kb of bad sectors message I am getting from check disk an indication that my hard drive is corrupt/deteriorating?

    Regards,

    JMT,
    Hello.... I don't know what you mean "errors on original backup" .... If you are doing a new backup from a HD ( C: ), to an internal or external, and get an error message that says that Acronis can't read a particular sector... it means just that. If there is any data in that sector it wont read it because of some problem on the HD ( C; ) The fact that your HD and "chkdsk" are showing errors that are not repaired ( and increasing ), says that your HD is going south (the one your trying to image) Try this as an experiment
    1. Set up a folder on your C: drive and call it "My Backup"
    2. Run Acronis from within windows, and browse for "backup locations" and choose your new folder (My Backup) or what ever you want to call it.
    3. Image C: to that location.
    4. This will tell you if Acronis can read all sectors on your C: drive...or shoot out error messages. This will show if you have a problem with your "External HD".
    5. When finished Check the new backup (mount image ) to see if anything is gone missing.
    Hopes this makes sense .... if it does please explain to me what i just said .
    Regards Fred

    jmt, it means 1 of 3 things, Acronis is not correctly installed, you have moved the backup file or defragged the hdd on which the image was stored.

    Roderunner, regarding your 2010-11-19 09:00 post, I still don’t see what you mean by I am not making my backups as Acronis recommends. Are you implying that I defragmented my disk before I ran an incremental backup?

    Fred, by “errors on original backup,” I mean errors on the first original backup I made with Acronis. This is the full backup of my laptop’s entire C and D drives. It is different from the incremental backups that I make periodically thereafter, which only record changes since the most recent full backup or most recent incremental backup.
    I can’t tell if Acronis’s message is referring to some problem on the backup on my external hard drive or whether the issue is with my laptop’s native C or D drives.

    Roderunner, regarding the “1 of 3 things” that my error messages can mean: I don’t think Acronis is incorrectly installed, as I have been using it for over a year with no problem, and I haven’t moved the backup file or defragmented the external hard drive on which the image was stored. I believe I did run a defragmentation on my computer’s C drive after I was getting the errors, but now I don’ remember. I may have only run a check disk and opted to repair the errors.

    Use CCleaner using default setting to clean your registry then the cleaner feature. http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ Now do a 'One Click' backup.
