Sounds duff to me. Try setting it at a lower burn speed if you are able to.

Hmm. Doesn't sound like its going to work, you might want to try to manually back-up using Windows instead.

how do i do that :oops:
#21
I think Windows might even have a backup program of its own.

If you go to the Start Menu and then click Help, just type backup in the search box and see what pops-up.

They do take their time to do the system backup, I take it you are following the instructions in the Acer blurb you got with the laptop ?

Because it is partitioned.

The other bit is for Acer recovery management (or somthing like that)

Whats the model number ?

J has an Acer but all the stuff is in his room and I can't get to it tonight. I can try and help tomorrow if that's any good ?

In the meantime you should be able to access the user guide on the PC by going here:
1 Click on Start, All Programs, AcerSystem.
2 Click on AcerSystem User Guide.

I wouldn't worry too much as you can go back to this anytime and if you can't find the answer Acer support are usually pretty good.

Sorry can't be of better help sassie :)

There is a hidden partition you wont see it through my computer you will see it through disk management its to stop people deleting it. Its accessed at boot up You can try ALT+F10 or CTRL+F10 during the initial boot cycle and you should be in as for 455gb and its a 500gb drive that's because there's a recovery partition that takes maybe 20gb and a gb is 1024mb.

If its stuck on verify that should mean that the writings been successful and its reading the data back to make sure it can recover it personally i wouldn't waste my time with it its rubbish the same as windows backup get yourself a copy of ghost or acronis you can usually find free old copies knocking about the net .
banned#38
my acer backup had exactly the same problem and it never did work.


I eventually used acronis true image to do a full pc backup to dvd-r and an external hdd

Sassie, Assuming you are running vista, check this web pages, it will tell you how to back up the whole system or just your data.
