Event 11 Disk error

So, I noticed today that my computer had somehow restarted at some point (maybe a power outage, even though it has a UPS connected). Anyway, so upon logging back in, I look in the event viewer to...

No disaster. Everything of any importance is backed up offsite and locally, as I have planned appropriately just in case I did botch it as badly as I'm thinking.

Yeah, hindsight is often inconvenient. I should stop second-guessing myself sometimes, too.

I'm posting from a tablet right now, so I can't get a screenshot. I can tell you, however that my disk...

Dual-booting on separate hard drive w/out integrated loader

Essentially, I'm trying the unplug OS drive method. However, I'm running into some problems. I have an existing Windows 7 installation and want to install Windows XP as a completely discrete...

I can't say whether it is entirely related or not, but I've had issues with OCZ's Vertex 2 and 3 SSDs. Both would occasionally throw out restore errors like you are experiencing. The Vertex 2...

Okay, so I came up with a redundant approach using the Macrium Reflect WindowsPE disc and Cobian backup (app only). The latter works well to backup my game saves, since it supports VSS--not many...

Microsoft WPD Enhanced Storage Password Driver fails after waking

I just noticed this problem recurring again. It went away by itself on a clean install, but appears randomly sometimes on other installs. Anyway, it is not accompanied by any error messages after...

Looks like I'll have to live with it. It's annoying, but at least I'll have my files on hand. I may purchase the personal version of Macrium Reflect eventually, since it does both imaging and data...

That's odd, that it does another backup. Is it possible you missed some setting
in the process, perhaps in the scheduling?
It never did that to me upon restoring, but I only cold restores using...

Did you also include IE9 in your slipstream? Were you using RT 7Lite?
