I performed a backup of a laptop 40MB disk using a USB IDE interface. The backup "succeeded" with 7 errors on file I didn't care about. I tried restoring the files to the same disk and to a different disk. The different disk was also newly partitioned and formatted. It was 40Mb also.
In both cases the restore had about 70,000 errors all identified as (srCreateError) errors.
I'd really like to restore all the files. I'd also tried to "unzip" the backup to see if the files are in it. Micro$soft zip said it had a bad format.
