I ran into a strange problem. I booted from the USB flash drive and when creating an image (actually, it just copies the files) in this program, the computer restarts without warning after a few minutes of work.
No encription, no compression. Nothing. This program simply copies the files. I don't know if the problem with z370, or a specific board, but I decided to ask here. I never watched anything like this on X79.
I don't have overclock for now, so I don't think that the problem can be in the stability of the system. Win7 x64 works as usual.
I have 4x SATA SSD, 1x HDD and 1x SATA DVD. Files are copied from SDD to HDD. I tried disabling the SMART status check and this didn't help.
As far as I know, this program itself can't restart the computer, it can only exit to DOS.
I loved Ghost prior to updating to W10. Religiously backed up with it, and shame it's discontinued. However I would recommend you move on. A question from you, when you are booting from the flash drive are your watercooling and fan systems actually working, and working correctly during that time you get a restart?
At least you are able to reboot into the flash drive. Have you attempted to restore any files to see if that will work without a reset?
When I ran backups I always used the Windows tray interface, although I know that does not help in restore mode.
I tried to create an image using the Acronis boot disk (CD) - instead of 15 minutes, it will take several hours and I don't know what the final result will be. 10-20 seconds the program copies the files, then it waiting for something during 1 minute (according disk activity indicator). I have a board with H77 chipset and there are no such problems. I think in all these problems, either the chipset or the BIOS is to blame. I don't currently have another motherboard on on Z370 and preferably from another brand, so I can only guess, but it's extremely difficult to use such system. Unless we use the PC as a gaming console...
The rest of the tools work fine. Acronis (Windows boot CD, not Linux), modern Norton Ghost, Paragon and of course Windows 7 System Repair Disc. Well, it's time to move on to something new. But it's still strange that this happens. I think this is the fault of the board (it reboots for some reason specifically) 😛
