Windows 7: Acronis True Image Home 2009 Causes Computer Shut Off

Acronis True Image Home 2009 Causes Computer Shut Off

Using Acronis True Image Home 2009 (build 9,796) on Windows 7 build 7100 64-bit.

During the backup process the computer shuts off. No shut down, just turns off. Upon restart, Windows 7 does know that it has been shut down improperly, it just starts up normally. Acronis thinks it has completed the backup successfully.

Anybody seen this problem? I am using Acronis trial right now. I need a good disk image backup problem, and this one would be great if it didn't randomly power the computer off.

Recommend you get a NON TRIAL version of Acronis. I'm using v.12 and have had no problems with any version of Win 7. and it might be your copy of x64.

You might try setting the Backup Priority to High & this may solve that problem.
I always set both backup & recovery priority to high.

And NO, this has Never happened to me using x86 or x64 W7 operating systems.

I've seen one other issue with Acronis on the forums that I hangout at. The situation generated a BSOD - so I'd suggest to see if you've got any in the C:\Windows\Minidump folder. If so, zip them up and upload the .zip file in your next post.

I have the full version and I've not had any issues, though upon doing Clean Ups, the log always indicates that the Cleaning Failed, though the log shows it was completed successfully.

Nice, I'll have to check it out. I do like Acronis, perhaps is will work better once Win7 goes live. I find it to be a lot more reliable than Norton Ghost.

The folder you suggest looking in, c:\Windows\minidump , does not exist. Also, I didn't get the BSOD. The computer just shuts off. I am going to search for another product as I need some kind of incremental disk image backup solution for 7.

Acronis.True.Image.Home.2009.v12.0.0.9770

I am using Acronis, and have NO PROBLEMS ON ANY VERSION OF WINDOWS 7.
So either you have a problem because it is TRIAL, or you DL version is corrupt, or a program you have installed is causing the problem.

Acronis is not the PROBLEM.

Acronis.True.Image.Home.2009.v12.0.0.9770 = 100% solid

CoreDiskDirectorSuite.10.2160 = 100% solid

working perfect 100% of the time. no failures
