Split Image Corrupt (We Found a Temp Fix)

Post by Baystack_350 » Wed Nov 19, 2014 3:00 pm

Background: During a backup of a machine PC, I used a bootable startup disc to offload the image to a FAT32 external drive; this caused the image to automatically split into 4GB files. This is the first image I obtained that has been split as I normally use an NTFS external drive. We use a naming convention with underscores in the image file name. Our naming convention works great for our non-split images but not for split images.

Problem: When I either try to verify or restore the split image, I click on the first file of the split image, and the "File name" fills red with the [Next] button greyed out. However, if I highlight the second file of the split image, then I can click [Next] but it fails, as shown in second image below.

Temporary Fix: By changing the file-name without underscores the image will then allow me to verify and restore.

Again, the underscores do not affect our non-split images. I thought I'd post this in case anyone else is having the same problem.

The problem isn't with the underscore. The name should be BTUOven_Data2.rdr.
