Preferred Solution: CCC.exe - Bad Image

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am wishing to install another level of computer backup on my 98se system-either
1. Symantec (formerly Roxio) GoBack,
or
2. Drive imaging. (The best rated appear to be Acronis True Image or PowerQuest Drive Image.)

I would, however, like to know something about each method that I have not been able to discover through the respective software sites or various reviews (CNET, PCMag , etc.)

Regarding GoBack:

How far back would I be able to go, given that I will be setting aside roughly 4GB space to GoBack. Would it be possible to take a snapshot after setting up my system (after a format), then not run GoBack until I am about to make another major change, then close it /disable it again until the next major change, and so on?
The reason I would want to do this, is that I find that problems often don't appear necessarily directly (or even soon) after any change to the system. Rather it can depend on when the program/process (that is causing the problem) is run. For example, I have recently had a conflict between my flatbed scanner and film scanner. I had not used the film scanner for a few months, so who knows when the cause of the conflict was first introduced, or what indeed it was?
Apparently, Goback keeps taking its "snapshots" continuously until the allocated space is used up, then starts deleting the earliest snapshots (to release more space). To me this does not appear enough to cover months of snapshots.

When I double click an image it opens windows photo gallery instead of simply letting me preview the image in the photo gallery, I have to actually right click on the image then click preview (which is half way down the list instead of being at the top where it should be, instead open is at the top) I have an idea i may have to edit the registry to change the properties of my right click menu, I have backed up my registry but i dont know exactly what to enter and where to enter it. Just in case anyone suggests I right click and 'open with' in order to change the default program, i already know this isnt the case as this is the first thing i tried. The problem is far more advanced that than, iv spent ages searching the net, iv even tried ccleaner to clean up my registry hoping this would fix any errors, but the problems still exists!!

Hey guys, it is good to be back on here as my problems are always solved, it has probably been a few years since my last visit! Anyway I am still running my 2006 Dell XPS 400 machine with windows XP SP3 media Center edition. It has a dual core 3ghz pentium CPU, 2GB ram, a 320gb Western Digital hard drive that is less than half full,and an Nvidia GeForce 6800 graphics card. love this machine so darn much as it does everything that I personally wanted to has one I had made back in 2006. And I absolutely love Windows XP. So being that the thing is 7 1/2 years old and I have never had a prior desktop last over 5 years without a hard drive failure, I feel as if I am running on borrowed time. This saddens me as I take great care of this machine and love it to death. Have everything set up the way that I like and I'm very comfortable with it, I don't adapt well to change LOL. So I recently began researching and found that hardware parts are pretty cheap now for this, but if the hard drive fails I will lose everything. So rather than install a new hard drive should this happen, and then boot from the original six and a half-year-old disks. Drivers, try to find lost photos, etc. I have learned about cloning software and have been researching it. So I purchased a Acronos true image 2014 an external Seagate 1TB HD (for other stuff too photos for the wife etc), And an internal hard drive dock, as well as a brand-new 320 GB Western Digital 3.5" 7200 RPM hard drive.

My system:
Windows 7 Pro 64-bit
C-drive is a 250GB Plextor SSD
Acronis True Image 2011

Background:
I setup a weekly scheduled disk image of my system drive (C that gets sent to an external HDD (4TB). This was working very well for months with incremental backups most of the time and a full backup every five or six weeks. I recently noticed that my backups haven't been happening since mid-August. No errors or anything. They're just not running.

I opened Acronis and tried to run a backup manually. But when I click the Back Up button, nothing would happen. I recreated my backup scheme as a new backup and ran that. It runs, but my computer slows to a crawl and eventually (within minutes) nothing responds to my clicks in or out of Acronis. The hard drive light on the case lights up, and even after I've let it run for several hours, it never finishes. I have to reset the computer to get it back up and running again.

Changing compression levels or priorities doesn't make a difference.

I installed Macrium Reflect and tried running the same disk image backup there, but I had the same problem.

I also tried doing the backup using Windows backup program. The backup doesn't slow down or crash my computer, but it does fail at the end of the process. I get this error:

One of the backup files could not be created.
Details: The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.

Recently received automatic updates for the Win XP. This caused a crash on reboot after the updates were installed and completed. The message is "Stop: C0000221 (bad image checksum).  The image rpcrt4.dll is possibly corrupt.  The header checksum does not match the computed checksum."
I was able to run a repair for the OS (Windows XP Media Center Edition 2004) and was able to use my computer. I tried to identify the most likely update(s) that caused the error, but no luck so far.

I'm trying to use True Image 11 to image the system partition of my laptop. When I get to the place where it asks me to select the partition to image, there are two: the main NTFS system partition and a small recovery partition. Should I select both or just the system partition? I have heard that the recovery partition must be in a certain place on the HD to be usable. If so, and if I needed to restore the image , the recovery partition might not be restored to the same place and would therefore be unusable. Any advice on how to proceed here? Thanks.
 

A:Using Acronis True Image to image disk with hidden recovery partition

you should image it to the recovery partition, although it may not be a good idea to have it on the same HDD
I myself use an external drive which is probably the safest

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit

The windows system image backed up on my external hard drive (2TB WD USB3) is not showing while restoring the PC from an image.

The only option available is my hard drive partition on which i also had saved a system image.

What is the reason?
Though windows recommends External hard drive for backing up image when backing up the system.

A:System image on External hard drive is not accesible while restoring PC from image

Your system may not be able to see usb devices at boot. Check in bios for a setting that enables USB at boot. If there isn't such a setting, and if your system is fairly old and can't see the device, you'll have to copy the image to a separate partition on the hd.

Hello

Im very fed up with Dell's service.

I have a Precision 5510 that came with Windows 7 and a 500GB NVMe SSD. Performance was horrible without installing anything so I called up tech support.  Tech support told the usual deal: That I had to reinstall the OS. The USB key that came with the laptop had Windows 10.

Yesterday I start downloading the image from Dell's support site at 0800. At 1500 it finished and when using Dell's OS Recovery tool it says it is corrupted. I tried from another location with another internet connection and same thing.
Obviously angered and frustrated at the time I lost, I called up my sales rep and he offered to send me a USB key with Windows 7 for 67 euros.

This is a laptop for business use that has cost the company not only 2000 euros but a lost of productivity because of losing time on downloading the image. Dell should send me the key without any charge because I still dont think reinstalling a factory image on a laptop that from factory came slow is going to resolve anything.

A:Tech support tells me to restore Windows 7 image, image cannot be downloaded and now Dell wants to charge me 67 euros for a USB key

there are 2 possible solutions i can offer:
1. you can buy a windows 7 sealed CD from an IT store and do an installation.
2. Or you can download windows 7 from piratebay and also download Windows to USB Tool from google so you can use a USB to boot the windows. Then use the activation key Dell gave you to activate the windows.
But make sure your data is backed up so you dont lose anything important.
hopefully this will help.

I see this frequently enough that I am now wanting to know why.

I have set Acronis True Image to limit the maximum file size to 1.95 GB. This is to facilitate putting them onto a DVD later. I don't understand why, occasionally, a file in the middle or beginning of a set is smaller. In the below example, numbers 1 and 8 are much smaller than I would expect, especially #1.

A:Question about the image files Acronis True Image makes

Number 1 is the backup of the partition table (MBR). The others are just smaller because the backup ran out of data before making a full one. The second backup appears to be incremental.

If this is a single backup (which would mean maybe around 35 GB's of used space in XP), then I have no idea why 8 is smaller.

Hello,

Before I re-imaged my laptop, I made sure to do a backup of personal files + a system image in case things went wrong.

The imaging was successful, and now, the new Win7 OS recognizes the old backup as a backup from another computer (as it should).

However, is it possible to manage this old backup? (manage => edit)

Now that I don't need the old system image, I would prefer to get rid of it ... plus, I created a backup for my current image so there's quite a bit of space used by backup files..

Thanks

I have read about 50 threads in regard to the topic. I'm just looking for clarity here. I have a homebuilt system that got a virus Alureon.gen!k. Before researching it I let windows fix it. Computer won't open any applications now.
Decided to go to my Image to save time (NOT!). The image is on a USB external HDD currently attached directly to the computer. I can't get it to find the bleepin' Image!

The HDD was attached to an NAS over the network where it saved my windows images and backup files from the NAS. The drive's structure looks like this:

E: R6 Backup
Office Server
Office WindowsImageBackup MediaID.bin Data Drive Backup Files

Inside the Office folder are three items: Office, WindowsImageBackup, and a MediaID.bin. The Office folder has file backups. The WindowsImageBackup contains the expected image folders and files.

I understand from the threads that the WindowsImageBackup needs to be in the root of E: so I have done this two ways, neither of whiched worked. First I simply renamed the Root Office folder, and then I undid the rename and moved the WindowsImageBackup out of the Office folder and into the root of E:.

My new computer, arriving soon, will have Windows 7 Home Premium OS, same OS I have on my current (Old) computer. Using True Image 2013, I made image of the entire Old Computer hard drive (I switched to disk mode). I will recover that image to the New Computer, using Universal Restore, from an Acronis Boot CD. (I read somewhere that recovering an image using the CD recovery disk is not the same as recovering the image using the TI program installed on another drive. Is this true? If so, why would it be?)

I assume that the recovery will overwrite the Win 7 OS in the New Computer, leaving the Win 7 OS from the Old Computer. Is this a problem? Will it affect anything? Is the Win 7 OS on the New Computer going to be different, higher version than the old OS? If so, should I do anything about that, like try to upgrade to the latest version/build? Alternative: should I leave the Win 7 system on new computer, yet recover everything else? How do I do that?

Many thanks for any help. Most appreciative.

A:Need help recovering image to dissimilar hardware with True Image 2013

The restore doesn't overwrite the OS (per se) but instead, since you did a full disk image, it will replace all the existing partitions on that disk (if any) with the partitions contained in the image backup -- essentially, erasing the entire disk. When done, what you have on that disk will the same as what is in the image backup.

Don't know about Universal Restore, since I use Redeploy from Macrium Reflect (MR) to do the same, but in the MR version, you do the following:
1) Connect the media containing the image
2) Boot from an MR CD (or USB)
3) Restore the image to the new disk
4) Insert disk or USB that contains the drivers needed for the new PC
5) Select the MR option to recover to different hardware -- MR then scans the PC for hardware and devices and installs the drivers from the disk or USB that you provided
6) Remove USB and/or disk, and reboot
7) Will boot into OS with new drivers installed

I presume that Universal Restore from Acronis works much the same way ...

We are following How to do a System Image Recovery in Window7 from seven forums.com http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/675-system-image-recovery.html
After Selecting the System Image from the D Drive (STEP TWO, # 5 and 6), the computer prompts to create a repair disk. The only way to move forward is to create or not create the disk. In either case, it then has you restart the machine, takes you through the process again.... Step 5/6.... Never gets to Step 7 to actually DO the System Recover!
What am I missing. We have been at this for over 2 weeks and any help would be much appreciated!

A:Windows Image Recovery-Can't move forward after selecting Sys Image

Are you booting off your Windows DVD? Or are you using the Windows Recovery Environment by hitting DEL or PF8 to pull up Windows Repair?

I would think the only time you are asked to create a repair disk is during the actual TAKING/creating of the System Image (after it is complete).

I recently had problems with BSOD. I was able to fix the underlying cause, but this got me nervous. So I am thinking of starting a program of periodically creating system images of my laptop - both the C & D drives - so that I could restore my system in the event of hardware failure. Make sense?
 
I have some questions to make sure that I understand the underlying System Image & Repair disk process, & also when I would use a Windows 7 ISO image.
 
(1) Am I correct that when I restore from a system image of both C & D drives, that both drives are **totally** recreated?
 
(2) Will I still have a legal copy of Windows 7 when I restore using the system image?
 
(3) Should I make sure that I have a repair disk before I restore from system image? If so, why?
 
(4) Is it necessary to periodically recreate a repair disk? Or once a repair disk is created, it is good for any future repair that may be needed?
 
(5) There are sites where one can download a Windows 7 ISO image.   
    (i) Am I correct that restoring from this image just installs Windows 7 and no other programs? 
    (ii) Will I still have a legal copy of Windows 7 when I restore using a Windows 7 ISO image?

A:Windows 7 - System Image, Repair Disk, & ISO Image Questions

Users have (at least) two ways to go to overcome those unforeseen problems that occur.
 
a.  Make clones of the hard drive reflecting the O/S.
 
b.  Use backup software which creates a file which can be restored, item for item.
 
I have done both at some time...right now, I prefer making a clone of my O/S (dual-boot) partitions...while backing up data files on extra hard drives I have lying around.  User preference determines whether a user backs up...or creates a cloned image.
 
You might take a look at Macrium Reflect, a program that seems to do each pretty well.
 
Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download - http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx
 
Those ISO files of Windows 7...are covered by this pronouncement here at BC:  Recommending ISOs of Windows Recovery Discs or pre-made ISOs of WinPE-BartPE - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic382841.html .
 
In addition to being illegal...those .iso files...or any file NOT obtained from a legal, authorized source...are subject to reflect code, errors, malware...or something else that the user has not bargained for, IMO.  If I were a malware misanthrope...that would be my favorite vector...giving an unknowing public something "for free" that they have no desire to legitimately obtain.

I am able to use the wizard to create a .wim file which I can then upload manually, but I would much rather upload the image through the wizard and save myself an extra step.

hey,
okay i've installed a new burner on my computer (LG - GCE-8526B). it works. it plays cd's, whatever.
but nero is being a total jerk with it and any time i go to burn audio files, right when i tell it to burn it asks what 'image file' to save it as. if i just type in anything it seems to burn through sucessfully except that the cd is still blank by the end of it.

when i go to "Choose Recorder" it only gives me the option of 'Image Recorder - Virtual device' and i cannot choose anything else or de-select this.

if i go to autodetect cd-rom it only allows access to my E drive (dvd player) (the one i want is F). i checked that it is all installed properly as a slave drive (same as the one i was replacing).
also it won't give me the option of any test burns or a speed choice before burning.

basically how do i make it stop thinking that everything is image files!!
please help! this is driving me nuts!!
appriciate any input
cheers

I'm trying to find out if this Thin Pro 4 image supports the use of SHA 256 certificates. We have personnel at different sites with the SHA2 CAC's and they are not able to log into the systems with their CAC's. We have all the root certificates and server certificates needed to connect to our citrix environment. We have the Thin Pro 5.2 image at other site and we can use the SHA 256 certificates and CAC's to log in on them.

I've been dual-booting Windows 8 Pro and Windows 7 Ultimate, but a while back my Windows 8 kind of went "South" and wouldn't boot at all (I got an error message that a device was "not attached"). I have a recent system image on an external USB hard drive, but when I boot to "system recovery" using my repair disk it can't seem to find my USB drive at all.

The tutorials here mention installing a SATA driver to access disks that are not recognized, but this doesn't seem to be the case.

Any suggestions?
Thanks

I have Corel Photo House and Photoshop 4 photo editing software. I don't really use them a lot, and admit that I'm not very good at doing most things. One thing I've had occasion to do lately is to take a person from one image and copy it to a second image. The problem is that it takes a really steady hand, and patience, to trace around the outline of what I want to copy. I try to facilitate this by slowing my cursor to crawl speed, but I still have trouble accurately following the subject's outline.

Is there software -- preferably freeware -- that has an easy way of transposing/copying portions of an image?

I'm using Outlook 2003 on Windows 2000.

I am using Outlook preview pane. When I preview a message that has embedded images, the first image will be blank with the red x in the upper left corner. However, any remaining images in that email or the email trail are displaying properly.

If I click on "forward" and Outlook opens the message in a new window, then ALL images display properly - including the first one that was not displaying in the preview mode.

This has happened to me in the past, then it started working correctly, then yesterday I'm back to having the error. No new programs were installed yesterday. The only thing I can think of that I did yesterday was to turn on Google Desktop Toolbar within Outlook. I have since turned it off and restarted Outlook and restarted my PC and still have the problem.

I have ran detect and repair and it did not help.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Thank you

Hi! I apologize in advance if this is in the wrong forum and if a thread on this subject already exists, I just couldn't think of any other place to put it.

I got Windows 8 and it's working pretty much perfect after I fixed a few issues. But there's an interesting thing happening, and I don't know if it's a 'feature' or something I can correct. When I go into one of my image folders and right click on one of my pictures to set it ask my desktop background, it will work, but then the image folder will scroll all the way all the way back up to the top, and it does this every single time.

This is kind of annoying, and I'm not sure why it does this... is there anything I can do about it, or am I missing something obvious?

Thanks!

Just thought I would share the solution I found to my problem mounting .iso images in Windows 8 Pro.

The very helpful error message I was getting was this:

and in powershell I got this:
Essentially the problem is that windows .iso mounting does not like 'sparse' files. I had used Acronis backup to backup my original .iso files and this DOES use sparse files. You can check if a file is 'sparsed' by looking at the files details in properties. The 'P' in the attributes represents a sparse file. See the screenshot below.

The result? When I restored my .iso images I could no longer mount them.

The simplest solution I have found is to just copy the .iso to a new file - this seems to create the new file without the sparse flag set.

Hope this helps somebody!

A:Windows 8 refuses to mount .iso image because image is 'sparse'

For anyone that is curious.. Sparse files are files that have "reserved" space in them that is not technically part of the data. An application can create a sparse file so that it leaves room to expand it in the middle without having to recopy all the data. I can understand why Acronis would do this for a backup image.

Shouldn't Acronis also have a file viewer?

This happens most often to my Windows 7 Forum shortcut.
This what it looks like now.......



Now and then, it would change into something like a globe. A little later, it would revert back to the " normal " image.

What causes that ?

NO, I did not install anything when this happened last time.

Thank you.

A:desktop shortcut image changes then back to initial image

Does the screen flicker when this occurs?

If so, I'd guess it's something to do with Windows temporarily switching from Aero to Basic for some reason.

That in itself would suggest you may have some sort of a conflict with your graphics card or setup.

You might want to check the Event Logs and see if there is anything untoward going on.

On Recovery Partition.
 
Hi,
 
Have had a search and can find nothing concerning the question I have - I'm not even sure if this is the correct forum.
 
I have a Dell Venue 11 Pro (5130) running Windows 8.1 Pro, what I would like to do, if possible, is to replace the factory restore on the recovery partition with a custom image so that if or when
the factory rest option is selected it uses my custom image and not the default one.
 
The problem I am having is that the default image is only 6GB in size where as when I create my custom image it is approx 14GB in size.
 
Is there a way of editing the default image to add in certain settings and software?
 
Regards
 
Fugazi

A:Replacing Factory Restore Image With Custom Image ...

Modifying the System Recovery partition is not what you want to do.  You will not be able to modify is, and you may find that you need to use this at some time in the future.  I would suggest that you use a program like Macrium Reflect.  You can find a tutorial for it here.

I am looking at a system for a friend that has got W7 Home Premium installed. However, he made a system image of his Windows 7 Ultimate system (using Backup and Restore) as he has all his work applications on it (some of the software he uses won't work with W8 or W10.)
I booted the system with a W7 Home Premium DVD with the external drive (with the image on) plugged in. It listed W7 on the drive, but when I clicked on Next, it said This version of the recovery options in not compatible. This also happens if I select to Restore an image from a different drive.
I got hold of an installation DVD with a copy of W7 Ultimate on it, installed it, went to Backup and Restore, but Windows said it could not find any images on any connected drives!
Is there a way to do this?

seemed to go ok initially, recognised the SSD....but in the final stages where I had to chose the partition to recover to ( assume this means restore ) it only displayed the portable HDD with the image on, not the SSD....
not sure if I am doing something wrong..
I am now installing Windows 10 clean install to the SSD, in the hope it will ' prep' it and then try again.

any thoughts please

At that point there should have been an option with Acronis to format and partition the SSD, as it appears there was no partition on it.

AFAIK you should not have to "prep" the SSD in any way, as so long as it is recognized by your PC's BIOS Acronis will take over the formatting of it when you Restore from your HDD image backup.

Hi
I foolishly took on a friend's infested PC as a favour. I've got most of the problems sorted but there remains an intemitent windows pop-up saying "Bad image: SensAPI.DLL not a valid Windows image". This appears repeatedly, especially at startup, when installing something or particularly (so it seems to me) when using antimalware programs like Spybot or Hijack this. When installing Zonealarm is popped up hundreds of times and nearly prevented me from doing it. The title bar of the pop-up will have the name of an executable such as zlclient.exe for Zonealarm.

Maybe this is actually a corrupted DLL but other pages I've read suggest it could be malware. Any advice or suggestions appreciated. You ask to specify the type of infection. I'm sorry but I don't know exactly. Please feel free to ask for more details.

Thanks

Does anyone know about this trojan and could it be related to the sensapi.dll issue described in my original post?

Uhuh. So I'm sure you've heard of this before, because I've read it on a few other forums. however, my problem has some quirks.

So i turned on my computer the other morning, and everything was restored to the way it was when I originally got it. I went to Help and Support in the Start menu, and something popped up that said blahblahblah.DLL is not a valid windows image. It did the same thing with Windows Messenger, and Windows Live.

Now most of the support forums are saying to just reformat everything with the installation disks because I have malware. However I can't do this because my laptop is an Acer Aspire One, and doesn't have a disk drive.

Is there any way around reformatting with the disks?

Thanks so much!!!

I need a little help figuring this out. I made a backup image a while back on my network. Now that I want to re-image, I reboot as requested, wait for it to load, and Windows says it can't find my backup, "if it is on a network, close this window , type the network location."

Putting in the network location does nothing, I'm just returned to the screen where it would list the backup image if it had found it, but there's nothing there.

Thinking perhaps my NAS was the problem I copied the image onto a portable hard drive, but after rebooting into the restore program, Windows 7 doesn't find the USB drive.

I know the image was good, because I got an "image successful" message when I made it. Any ideas?
